R&B singer Fantasia will kick-off her first headlining tour, entitled “Back To Me,” November 4th in Richmond, VA. The 30-city trek, which touches on a large pie of the U.S. footprint, will conclude by bringing in the New Year on January 1st in St. Louis, MO. “I’m so excited about this tour and having the chance to connect with my fans, the people that love me and have been supporting me through everything,” Fantasia states in a press release. “This tour is going to be a real special, intimate experience for them and for me.” Three-time Grammy Award nominee Eric Benet and Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter/producer Kandi will join Fantasia on the journey. Fantasia, an eight-time Grammy nominee, begins this tour after the critically acclaimed release of her third studio album, Back To Me which debuted at #1 on the Billboard R&B Albums chart and #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album marks Fantasia’s first #1 R&B album and her highest Billboard Top 200 chart ranking.
