Six years after winning the third season of “American Idol,” R&B singer Fantasia Barrino is mounting her first headlining tour to promote her recent album “Back to Me.”

The 30-date itinerary opens with a November 4 concert at Landmark Theater in Richmond, VA, and closes with a New Year’s Day performance at Fox Theatre in St. Louis, MO. The early part of the tour includes concerts on November 7 at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, MD, and November 24 at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.

A two-week scheduling gap follows Fantasia’s planned December 12 concert at Bell Auditorium in Augusta, GA. The tour will resume December 27 at Beacon Theatre in New York, NY, before moving on to a couple other major East Coast markets for concerts on December 28 at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, and December 30 at Auditorium Theatre in Chicago, IL.

Ticket presales begin today, September 30, while the initial round of public onsales starts tomorrow, October 1, in select cities. Ticket prices in most markets will start around the $47 mark and range up to $75, according to, though prices start at $55 in Baltimore and go as high as $87 in Atlanta.

Fellow R&B artists Eric Benet and Kandi Burruss will serve as special guests on the Back to Me Tour. More details are available on Fantasia’s official Web site.

Fantasia’s 30-date tour announcement comes on the heels of a turbulent summer for the recording artist. She grabbed the headlines first with an affair scandal and then with news of a suicide attempt in early August.

But the season ended on a high-note for the young singer, whose August 24 release “Back to Me” debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The second season of her reality TV show “Fantasia for Real” premiered on September 19.
