Singer/songwriter Michael McDonald will launch a new fall tour, beginning Sept. 9 in St. Louis and continuing through Dec. 21, when he will wrap it up in Norman, Okla. The tour includes a 10-night run at New York City’s prestigious Cafe Carlyle.

He will tour in support of his forthcoming Christmas album, Season of Peace: The Christmas Collection. See below for a list of dates. Go here or here for tickets.

The album, set for release on BMG on Oct. 12, compiles McDonald’s favorite Christmas recordings, including “White Christmas/Winter Wonderland” (feat. Jonny Lang), “Oh Holy Night,” “Christmas on the Bayou” and “Children Go Where I Send Thee” (feat. Twinkie Clark), as well as a new version of “Winter Wonderland” featuring special guest Jake Shimabukuro. The album art hails from an original painting by McDonald himself; see below for a complete track list.
