    Emmylou Harris and Daniel Lanois to Tour Europe in Celebration of "Wrecking Ball" Reissue May 2014

    As announced last week in the Nonesuch Journal, Emmylou Harris’s groundbreaking album Wrecking Ball will be reissued in April on Nonesuch Records. In celebration of the reissue, Harris and producer Daniel Lanois, along with Jim Wilson on guitar and Steven Nistor on drums, will embark on an international tour this spring, including, in addition to the previously announced North American dates in April, newly announced European shows in the Netherlands, Belgium, and UK in May.

    Produced by Lanois (U2, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Willie Nelson), Wrecking Ball won the 1996 Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Folk Album and was highly praised by critics worldwide. The new three-disc set features the remastered original album, a bonus CD of previously unreleased material, and a DVD of the documentary Building the Wrecking Ball, which includes interviews and studio footage of Harris and Lanois as well as special guests Kate and Anna McGarrigle, Neil Young, Steve Earle, Brian Blade, and others.
