Speculation over a full national tour by US star Kelly Clarkson has been high since she was revealed as the headline guest at the Deni Ute Muster in late September.
This morning comes the news that her local fans have waited so patiently for… That she will indeed play a national tour while she’s on local soil, taking in dates in all five major centres.
Kelly’s come a long way since sweeping the American Idol competition ten years ago, scoring four successive top five albums in Australia, along with a string of top ten singles including ‘Miss Independent’, ‘Breakaway’, ‘Since U Been Gone’, ‘Because Of You’, ‘My Life Would Suck Without You’ and her first ever No.1 single here, ‘Mr.Know It All’.
The latter is lifted from Kelly’s latest album ‘Stronger’, which has so far nabbed platinum sales in Australia.
Joining Kelly as the support for all dates is US outfit The Fray, who hit the big time down under with their 2006 single ‘How To Save A Life’ and their 2008 track ‘You Found Me’ (which hit No.1 on the ARIA charts).
Recent ‘The Voice’ contestant Sarah De Bono will also appear at all dates.
Tickets for all dates are on sale on Wednesday July 11.
