Furtado will be backed by four dancers and her six-piece band, including Toronto rapper Saukrates on percussion who also fills in for Loose producer Timbaland, from whistling on “All Good Things (Come to an End),” to rapping on the duo’s monster hit, “Promiscuous.” Saukrates will double as the opening act.

“For the last eight years I’ve never really traveled with a full production of lights, visuals and dancers — and this tour I’ve got all of it,” the 28-year-old singer told Sun Media in Victoria.

“I’ve spent eight years building my musicality so that now I can rely on that, but then I also have a great backup up there with all the production, which a treat for me.”

The inspiration for the stage production came from Florida, so it’s fitting that she’ll start off with two nights in the Sunshine State.

“The show is inspired by Miami. There’s palm trees on the set, white palm trees and a white stage, and it’s got a little bit of drama to it. I think the show’s a little more sensual or sophisticated, but I keep the primary focus on the songs,” she said.
