M.I.A. Schedules World Tour, Plays Montreal, Toronto

M.I.A. Schedules World Tour, Plays Montreal, Toronto
So far in 2010, M.I.A. has gone from indie star to tabloid punchline: she's squabbled with journalists, dissed Lady Gaga and released a so-so album. Now, she's looking to pick herself back up with a world tour that will last the rest of the year.

The outing will begin later this month and run all the way to December. The North American leg will start on September 21 in Montreal, with another show in Toronto the next night. From there, she'll head to the U.S., before going on a month-long European jaunt.
