Remember 2007 when a movie about two shy songwriters tore your heart to shreds on screen? That was Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova in Once, and the good news for you Once-devotees is that Glen Hansard is back with a North American tour this spring. The tour was announced along with a new documentary short, produced by La Blogotheque, about the creation of his new album, The Wild Willing, out April 16 on Anti- Records.

Hansard is known for his passionate lyrics and commanding, evocative performances. It’s a wonder that this strong and soulful man doesn’t brake his guitar in two after each song. His new album promises to be another authentically Hansard production that will be packed with deep emotion and roaring acoustic guitar. Hansard will perform at the Merriam Theater on May 31. Tickets go on sale on Friday, February 15 at 10am. Check out the tour dates below and get more information on the show at the XPN Concert Calendar.
