Though he's been out of action for the past couple of months, Canadian singer/songwriter Hawksley Workman is ready to make a live return just in time for the end of the year. The singer has one date coming up in France (where Workman is mighty popular), one in the States, and five in his home and native land.
The first of the Canadian dates Workman has scheduled is December 9th in Vancouver, British Columbia, and it will be his only western date on the short tour. The following four performances are set to take place in Ontario and Quebec, with the last coming on December 17th in Toronto. Earlier this year, Workman completed an extensive tour of Canada in support of 'Lover/Fighter'.
Not only will Hawksley Workman be entertaining fans able to catch the singer's final gigs of the year, but also those who aren't lucky enough to make it to the shows. On November 16th, a live DVD with a 20-song, 2-hour set taken from a performance in Lille, France will be released. Filmed during his 'Lover/Fighter' tour, 'Live in Lille' is Workman's very first live DVD release. In addition to the concert footage, the release will also contain all of the singer's videos (9 in total), a discography, and the making of 'Lover/Fighter' (Workman's latest studio-album, released in 2003).
