Tom Waits has signed to a booking agency for the first time in 20 years.

The singer songwriter has started working with William Morris Endeavor, according to CMU. The cult artist, who rarely performs live, played his first show in five years as part of Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit in October 2013. His signing to William Morris Endeavor might mean that he is planning future live shows.

Last night (April 1), previews started for a new version of William Shakespeare's The Tempest at The Smith Center in Las Vegas. Tom Waits and his wife Kathleen Brennan provided music for the show, which is directed by Aaron Posner alongside magician Teller of Penn & Teller. The show will open officially on April 5 and run until April 27.

Last May Tom Waits joined The Rolling Stones live onstage to sing 'Little Red Rooster'. The Rolling Stones played the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California and invited the legendary singer on to perform the blues classic, which the Stones famously covered in 1964. The track was originally performed by Howlin' Wolf but Sam Cooke and The Doors also recorded their own versions.
