Glen Hansard will play eight dates in small venues across the country between the 20th and 29th of October, culminating with a night in Dublin's Vicar Street on 26th November.

Hansard's tour will take in dates in Sligo, Belfast, Dundalk, Clonakilty, Ballycotton, Cavan, Cork and Galway, with Lisa O'Neill (who releases her second album Same Cloth next month) providing the support on tour, with the exception of the Galway date. Tickets for these shows will set you back €20.

Dublin's Vicar Street will then host Glen Hansard and a full band on 26th of November. The band, of course, includes all members of The Frames, along with a brass and string section.

Tickets for the Dublin show will go on sale from 9am on Friday 6th September, priced at €30.
