Fantasia Barrino to tour this fall

Posted on


Image Credit: Johnny Nunez/WireImage.comAny doubts about how Fantasia Barrino has recovered from her difficult summer will be put to rest this fall when she hits the road for her Back to Me tour. She’ll play 30 dates, beginning with a Nov. 4 stop in Richmond, VA. Kandi and Eric Benet have been announced as her special guests. Check out the full list of venues.

Barrino attempted suicide on Aug. 9, overdosing on aspirin and sleeping aids after a barrage of negative press focused on her relationship with a married man. The drama was captured for her VH1 reality show, Fantasia For Real, leading some to ask if the show was too real.

Is this a comeback you’re rooting for? Touring is one way to put the focus back on her music.
