Kelly Clarkson has finally announced her highly anticipated Meaning of Life Tour after planning it for a year. It will be her first headlining tour in more than three years. She will kick off the tour, which takes the name from her 2017 album, on January 24, 2019, in Oakland, and will stop at Gila River Arena on Friday, February 1, 2019.
Clarkson will perform 28 shows over three months; eventually ending South Carolina.
The album, Meaning of Life features her hit single "Love So Soft."
Clarkson won't be alone on this tour, though. The opening acts will include country singer Kelsea Ballerini, and last year's winner of The Voice, 15-year-old Brynn Cartelli who was on Team Kelly.
Tickets will go on sale Monday September 17 at 10 a.m. local.
