Grab a pencil and jot this down: Fantasia is going on tour!
The Grammy-winning singer has announced The Sketchbook Tour with special guests Robin Thicke, Tank and The Bonfyre.
The 29-city, North American tour will kick off on October 17 in Columbia, South Carolina at Township Auditorium. Tasia and co. will hit major cities in the U.S. including Atlanta, New York, Baltimore, New Orleans and Houston. The tour will conclude on December 6 at Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
The Sketchbook Tour will support Fantasia’s upcoming album of the same title. According to a press release, the album is slated to arrive on October 11 via Rock Soul/BMG.
“I’ve been blessed to perform all over the world and have never been as excited & hungry to hit the stage as I am for this tour,” Fantasia said in a statement. “The stage is my sacred place and where I feel most connected with people through my music. This tour is sure to be one that’s full of great surprises, incredible energy, and an absolutely great time for everyone who is able to come party with Rock Soul in the city nearest you.”
This Friday, Fantasia will release her next single “PTSD” featuring T-Pain. It will follow the album’s lead single “Enough,” which reached the top 10 on the urban adult contemporary radio chart.
