Sharon Jones is back and better than ever.

After being diagnosed with stage II pancreatic cancer last year, the musician was forced to put her career and album on hold. Now, back from a successful treatment, Jones’ new record, Give the People What They Want, has been met with triumphant reviews. Nothing is stopping this lady from living her life.

Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings will be heading out on a long tour this February and will be coming to Union Transfer on Friday, May 30. Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 24 at noon.
