This summer is going to be really busy for Kelly Clarkson because she will hit the road for an extensive two and a half month long tour around North America. The singer announced her summer 2015 Piece by Piece Tour today (March 3) in an issued press release, and it kicks off July 11 in Hershey, Pa. with her concert at Hersheypark Stadium.

Pre-sale tickets go on sale beginning March 9 at 10 a.m. local time. Only those who are signed up for her Kellebrity fan club have access to those early bird pre-sale tickets. Beginning March 10 a special Citi card member pre-sale begins, which is only open to Citi card holders.

Tickets for all of the concerts on Kelly Clarkson's summer 2015 tour go on sale to the general public beginning March 14. Once they go on sale, tickets can be purchased via a special Piece by Piece Tour website.

Kelly Clarkson will be headlining this summer tour in support of her seventh studio album, Piece by Piece. The album was released in the US today, March 3 via RCA Records. It was the first album featuring all new material that Clarkson had released since 2011. The current, and lead single from the album is "Heartbeat Song."

Directly supporting Kelly Clarkson on all dates of her summer 2015 tour will be the American a cappella group, Pentatonix. That group's most recent full length studio album, That's Christmas to Me was released this past fall on Oct. 21 via RCA Records.

Today, Clarkson posted an announcement video about the tour. In the video Clarkson said that maybe she can get Pentatonix to come on stage during her headlining set so they can perform a song together.

Opening up all concerts on the Piece by Piece Tour will be American singer-songwriter Eric Hutchinson. His most recent studio album, Pure Fiction was released in April 2014.
