In December 2013 she broke the news she was nixing the tour with a statement saying that “after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be.” The pop star later revealed that she took a break because she had been diagnosed with lupus and had undergone chemotherapy.

But now she’s busy putting in time on the road in support of her second studio album, 2015’s Revival. The North American leg of her world tour launched earlier this month in Las Vegas and runs through July. Later that month she plays Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Philippines, followed by a few nights in Japan in early August. In October she heads for Europe.

Here are the dates for Australia and New Zealand:  

Aug. 6 – Melbourne, Australia, Margaret Court Arena
Aug. 9 – Moore Park, Australia, Hordern Pavilion   
Aug. 11 – Boondall, Australia, Brisbane Entertainment Centre
Aug. 13 – Auckland, New Zealana, Vector Arena

Australia telecommunications/media company Telstra is hosting a presale for select dates that begins May 27. A presale for Live Nation members starts May 30. Tickets go on sale to the general public June 1.
