    This is GREAT news! Sharon Jones is better and going back on the road. She will also be a part of the national Thanksgiving Day festivities.

    Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are set to return to the road for a full North American tour this spring. This is the band's first full U.S. tour in over two years.

    Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings will perform on a float in the 87th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, which will be televised nationally on NBC on Thursday, November 28.

    In looking forward to performing on Thanksgiving, Sharon Jones recollected, "Getting to take part in this parade is so thrilling; I've been watching it on television since I was a young girl. I have traveled a hard road this year and being thankful is something I relate to deeply."

    For the uninitiated, 2013 has become a year of unforeseen challenges and transformations for the band. Three months before the original scheduled release of the group's fifth studio record, Give the People What They Want, Sharon Jones was diagnosed with cancer.

    What was projected to be a hectic and exciting year touring worldwide was quickly taken over by hospital rooms, doctors, and many unknowns. At 57, Jones has lived through her fair share of hardships and heartbreak, but being separated from the stage and her fans would prove to be the most difficult challenge yet.

    Thanks to an extremely gifted medical staff, several months of recovery and the infinite love and support from friends, family and fans, Sharon is back, ready to once again join her Dap-Kings as they share their music with people around the globe.

    The album is out January 14.
