    Like a good old fashioned cliffhanger, fans are waiting to see whether M.I.A. will in fact make it to America this summer to promote her sophomore record Kala or not. The unconventional female rapper has cancelled a number of dates in the past due to visa issues, but after today's announcement detailing a North American itinerary, we have reason to believe that it's all been sorted out.

    So for the time being, M.I.A. will begin her brief American tour at the Village Voice-sponsored Siren Festival taking place in Coney Island, NY on July 21. She'll stick around the US for a while and hit her last stop in New Orleans, LA on October 26-28 for the Voodoo Music Experience.

    These are the dates:

    July
    21 Brooklyn, NY - Siren Festival
    25 Brooklyn, NY - Studio B
    28 San Francisco, CA - Rickshaw Stop

    August
    03 Chicago, IL - Lollapalooza
    04 Chicago, IL - House of Blues
    05 Baltimore, MD - Virgin Festival

    September
    14 Austin, TX - Austin City Limits Festival
    15 San Francisco, CA - Treasure Island Festival

    October
    26-28 New Orleans, LA - Voodoo Music Experience
