To Also Headline Nine Dates On The All-Female Fall Hotel Café Tour
Acclaimed indie artist Ingrid Michaelson has announced the dates of her national headlining ‘Be OK’ tour, beginning in her hometown of Staten Island, NY on October 29. The tour coincides with the release of her benefit project, Be OK, an album of previously unreleased songs, covers, and live recordings that have become fan favorites from her shows over the past year. Be OK will be released October 14 via Michaelson’s own Cabin 24 Records.
A portion of the proceeds from sales of Be OK will go to Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a groundbreaking initiative aimed at raising funds to accelerate cancer research and end cancer’s reign as a leading cause of death. Additionally, a historic, nationally-televised program will be simultaneously broadcast live and commercial free on ABC, CBS and NBC on September 5, 2008 at 8pm EST and PST. The music video for the song “Be OK” will debut on www.standup2cancer.org August 19.
Michaelson has also designed a “Be OK” necklace for sale at each tour stop and online, with all proceeds going to SU2C. The “Be OK” single will be available on iTunes beginning September 2, the same date Michaelson is set to perform the song on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Michaelson is also confirmed to headline nine dates on the first leg of the upcoming all-female Hotel Café Tour this fall, from October 16 – 27. The tour will feature some of the best female songwriters performing today, including Rachael Yamagata, Priscilla Ahn, Meiko, Brooke Fraser, Kate Havenik, and Thao Nguyen, among many others.
