The trek kicks off Oct. 26 in Washington, D.C., and wraps up Dec. 10 at New York's Nokia Theatre Times Square.
The singer will perform tracks from the new disc, including "Get Up" and lead single "Promise," as well as previous singles such as "Goodies" and "1, 2 Step," from her 2004 debut "Goodies." That disc peaked at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 2.6 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Ciara will also support the Black Eyed Peas Dec. 1 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and perform at several radio concerts in cities such as Philadelphia, Miami and Hartford, Conn.
"Previewing the new record in a small setting gives my fans an exclusive experience where they can truly hear and see exactly where I'm going," says Ciara. "It's about so much more than just my personal growth -- it's about the evolution of music, the evolution of dance, the evolution of fashion. I want to bring a taste of all that to the fans in a one-on-one environment to get them excited."
The video for "Promise," directed by Diane Martel, will debut Oct. 25 on BET's Access Granted. The network will also air her half-hour special "From the Studio to the Stage," as well as a dance contest.
