SuBo to tour US for first time
Susan Boyle has announced that she will tour the US for the first time in October this year.
The singer who shot to fame after taking part in Britain's Got Talent in 2009 has previously toured the UK in 2013 and 2014, and now plans to go across the pond to entertain her Stateside fans.
She said: " This is a brilliant moment for me. I am so very proud to be announcing that I will be performing in my very own tour in the USA. This is very exciting. The past five years have been incredible and it just keeps getting better.
"I have spoken so often about wanting to tour America and it is actually happening. The Americans have embraced me since the beginning and I can't wait to hit the road. I'm hoping it will be in a tour bus so that I can see more of the country as we travel across the USA."
The tour will span 21 dates and begins in California on October 8, before moving on through states including Texas, Arizona, Georgia and Florida.
Susan has had great success in the US already, where she has been nominated for two Grammys and became the only person to enter the Billboard 200 chart with a number one album that stayed there for six weeks.
Tickets go on sale from June 9.
