Clarkson will give audiences a preview of her new material, as well as performing selections from her two albums, which have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.
The tour covers amphitheatres in the South and East Coast before heading west in late July. She’ll play a string of California dates the following month before wrapping in Seattle August 6.
Following the tour, Clarkson plans to go back into the studio to record her third album, her followup to the 2004 smash Breakaway. She hopes to release the disc late this year or in early 2007.
