QUICK TAKES

Clarkson is 'pumped' for touring

September 05, 2007|From the Associated Press

Kelly Clarkson, who scrapped an earlier tour this summer due to slow sales, is heading back on the road this fall.

The Grammy-winning singer announced Tuesday she would kick off a 24-date theater tour Oct. 14 at New York City's Beacon Theater, winding down in Nashville on Dec. 4 at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium.

"I'm getting pumped to get out there and rock with y'all," she said in a statement. "We intend to blow the roof off these theaters."

The former "American Idol" champ had a rough summer, splitting with her manager amid friction with her record label over the direction of her third album, "My December," which debuted at a disappointing No. 2 on the charts. In July, Clarkson canceled an arena tour due to slow ticket sales, and organizers said that they planned to re-evaluate the size of the tour.
