Aguilera’s Summer Plans

A new album and her first tour since ’07 fills up Christina Aguilera’s summer calendar. Of course, the big question is whether the singer is coming to your town.

The five-time Grammy winner’s new album, Bionic, drops June 8, but fans purchasing tickets through Live Nation’s website through June 4 will receive an e-mail containing a download link one day before the disc lands in stores.
