Renowned singer/songwriter Aimee Mann has announced an upcoming month-long fall tour, which she will use to preview new songs from a stage musical she is writing that is based on her 2005 concept album, The Forgotten Arm. The tour opens with a three-night stand in Minneapolis at the Dakota Jazz Club on September 13. Other highlights include a two-night residency at the Old Town School Of Folk in Chicago in mid-September and three nights at Yoshi’s in San Francisco in early October. The tour concludes in Napa, California, at the Uptown Theater on October 10.

The story for The Forgotten Arm‘s musical is set in the 1970s and follows John, a Vietnam veteran/boxer, and Caroline, a disillusioned-yet-hopeful young woman, as they fall in love and take a road trip across the United States. The 2005 concept album was a far cry from Mann’s latest work; she released the Christmas-themed One More Drifter In The Snow in 2006 and her wryly humorous non-concept album, @#%&! Smilers, in 2008.
