While her boyfriend Justin Bieber
is traveling across the globe, Selena Gomez
will visit big cities across North American for a tour to support her upcoming second studio album. The Disney songstress is going to kick off the gig this summer on July 28 at Mizner Park Amphitheatre in Boca Raton, FL, and wrap it up on September 12 at Western Washington Fair in Puyallup, WA.
"[I] cannot explain how excited I am to finally be putting on a full tour for all of you. I cannot wait to see you out on the road!" Selena shared her excitement to her Twitter followers shortly after the dates were announced. She has tapped the boys from Allstar Weekend as her supporting act throughout the tour.
Selena previously told Ryan Seacrest that she plans a Britney Spears tribute. Explaining her love for the "Hold It Against Me" hitmaker, she said Britney's show was the first concert she ever went to. She recalled, "I got the T-shirt and glow stick. and I just remember it being the highlight of my life! I felt like I was on cloud nine!"
In a more recent interview with MTV, Selena teased more about what she has in stores for this upcoming tour. "Were gonna do a little tribute. We're gonna do her hits, ' ... Baby One More Time,' and then I think we're going to try to incorporate 'Toxic' and that phase," she gushed. "And then we might do some of her recent, new stuff."
After getting thousands of teenage hearts pounding with his two huge gigs at the M.E.N. Arena this week, it was time for pop sensation Justin Bieber
to get a few thrills of his own here in Manchester.
For the 17-year-old Canadian heart-throb lined up a packed day of high-octane activities to enjoy some time off in Manchester.
First he headed to the indoor ski slope at Chill Factore next to the Trafford Centre, before heading down the road for a pitstop at the Daytona go-karting track.
He took a break from his hectic tour schedule to relax with his pals, including Jaden Smith, son of movie stars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith who has been on tour with the Bieber and his pop star sister Willow.
And after that snowboarding fun at the real snow slope, it was then off to the Daytona go-kart track just down the road in Trafford Park.
While he's barely old enough to drive in this country, Justin certainly proved himself to be rather nifty behind the wheel as he burned some rubber at the track.
