Kelly Clarkson plans first solo tour. The first ''Idol'' winner will play theaters in 34 cities this spring
While you’re waiting to see who’ll become the next American Idol winner, one proven Idol champ may be coming to a theater near you. After touring a number of times with other Idol folk, the show’s first winner, Kelly Clarkson, is embarking on her first solo tour. The 34-city trek across North America begins March 30 in Tulsa and ends May 29 in Vancouver. ”Nothing makes me happier than being on the road,” Clarkson said Tuesday in a statement. ”I can’t wait to see the fans and perform my new material.”
The 22-year-old singer will be promoting her new CD, Breakaway, in mostly theater-size venues, an arrangement that she said ”will be a great opportunity for me to connect with my die-hard fans in an intimate setting.” Details of the tour dates and ticket sales are posted at Clarkson’s website.
