Recent appearances at the Super Bowl and on "Saturday Night Live" were just warm-ups for Kelly Clarkson, who has announced plans for a two-month North American theater tour. The trek will open with a March 28-30 stand in Tulsa, Okla., and will close May 29 in Vancouver.
Pre-sale opportunities for most shows are available to fans signed up to the mailing list at Clarkson's official Web site.
The artist will be touring behind her sophomore RCA album, "Breakaway." Released in December, the set debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 1.3 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The album has already produced a pair of top 10 singles: the title track, which peaked at No. 6 on Billboard's Hot 100, and "Since U Been Gone," which is No. 9 on the singles chart.
Clarkson's tour schedule puts her in the Los Angeles area a week prior to the May 25 finale of the fourth "American Idol," so don't be surprised to see the inaugural winner of the Fox talent competition make an appearance during this season's penultimate week.
