“I’m so excited about touring in Australia & New Zealand for the FIRST time ever!” Braxton posted on Facebook. “It’s been way too long, I promise you it will be worth the wait! We are going to have some special, unforgettable nights!”

A poster promises that fans can expect an “unforgettable night of songs you love.”
