Stevie Nicks will tour North America this summer and fall in support of her new Reprise album Trouble in Shangri-La. The full itinerary is not yet finalized, but according to Nicks’ official Web site, the trek will begin July 6 in Pittsburgh and keep her on the road through late September.

Trouble in Shangri-La debuted at No. 5 on The Billboard 200 earlier this month, earning Nicks her highest album chart showing since 1983, when The Wild Heart bowed at the same position. First single Every Day is No. 21 on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary chart this week.

Don’t expect Nicks to drench her live sets with songs from the new album. “I learned an important lesson back during the first Rumours tour with Fleetwood Mac,” she told Billboard in January. “You can’t shove new songs down your audience’s throat. You can do three or four at the most.”

“On that Rumours tour,” Nicks added, “we did most of that album, and people didn’t want any part of it. They want familiarity. They want the comfort of songs that feel like old friends. You can’t exploit your fans by forcing them to embrace songs they don’t know yet.”

Here are Stevie Nicks’ confirmed tour dates:

July 6: Pittsburgh (venue TBA)

July 7: Clarkston, Mich. (DTE Energy Music Theatre)

July 14: Mansfield, Mass. (Tweeter Center)

July 21: Holmdel, N.J. (PNC Bank Arts Center)

July 25: Raleigh, N.C. (Walnut Creek)

Aug. 3: Dallas (Smirnoff Music Centre)

Sept. 4: Noblesville, Ind. (Verizon Wireless Music Center)
