R&B singer Keyshia Cole announced today the tour dates for her "A Different Me" tour in support of her latest album of the same name, which starts on May 13th in Cincinnati and caps on June 20th in Los Angeles, Ca. The 20-city trek will also make stops in Chicago, New York City, and Cole's hometown, Oakland, among others. The tour will include performances by label mate Kerri Hilson, The Dream and Bobby V.
"The most gratifying thing for me in show business is having the ability to be intimate with my fans. Singing directly to them is the most intimate thing I can do," Cole said in a statement.
Cole recently shot the video to "Trust," featuring Monica, the third single off "A Different Me," which has sold 835,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen Soundscan. Cole plans to release a fourth single/video, "This Is Us," before the tour takes off, and is already in the studio working on her as-yet-untitled fourth studio album.
