Scott spoke to Billboard on what fans can expect from her commemorative tour.
“I’m going to be true to the album set list,” she said. “I’ll do every song in the order of the album. My audience should bring their cd covers. Some may know the list by heart. I will create musical arrangements for the songs purposes with new energy but keep the integrity of the original songs they love. Expect theatre. Expect incredible musicianship. Expect love.”
Tickets for the tour go on sale this Friday, December 6 via Scott’s official website.
