Michelle Branch Lines Up 'Happy' Headlining Tour

Trek kicks off May 14 in San Francisco and runs through June 4.

Before joining the Dixie Chicks on the road for most of the summer, Michelle Branch will headline her own Are You Happy Now Tour, named after the singer's new single.

Branch's outing begins May 14 in San Francisco, more than a month before the release of her second album, Hotel Paper, which has been bumped back to June 24, according to a Warner Bros. spokesperson.

The track list has yet to be finalized, but Branch has said Sheryl Crow, Scott Weiland and Dave Navarro will appear on the record (see "Michelle Branch Records With Dave Navarro, Sheryl Crow For New Album"). "Are You Happy Now," the first single from the follow-up to last year's The Spirit Room, will hit radio this month.

After her trek wraps June 4 in Washington, D.C., Branch will prepare for her Dixie Chicks tour run, from June 19 in Boston to August 4 in Nashville.
