Pollstar reports that Sinead O’Connor will launch an “American Kindness Tour,” following a pair of successful shows at New York City’s Lincoln Center Festival July 26-27.

Her latest album, How About I Be Me (and You Be You)? was released in February 2012. O’Connor’s upcoming tour features  multiple gigs in New York City and Oakville, Ontario, as well as three stops in Chicago. With no new album to sell, it’s anyone’s guess what she will do.

According to The New York Times review of her Lincoln Center show, O’Connor performed an eclectic mix of spiritual songs that included a pair of Bob Dylan songs from his born-again period, “I Believe in You” and “Property of Jesus,” as well as an a cappella read of “Before We End Our Day,” a short evening prayer she’d learned from Irish monks.
Could the “kindness” come in the form of inspiration from a pulpit?

She’ll be at the City Winery in New York on November 8, 9 and 19, and the same venue in Chicago on November 4, 5 and 6.
