Xtina has x-ed out her summer tour — and she wants her fans to know why.
The singer was set to tour North America with British singing star Leona Lewis in a tour kicking off in Connecticut on July, but now the dates have been pushed back until 2011 and the announcement came just four days after the tickets went on sale.
The “Back In The Day” crooner wants her loyal legion of followers to get acquainted with her new album, Bionic, when it hits shelves next month before she embarks on a stage show.
In a post on her official website Tuesday, Aguilera explained: “I made the decision to move my summer tour and I am truly sorry to those of you who had purchased tickets and have been disappointed by the news. My album has not even been released as yet and I would like for you all to become familiar with the music before you hear it live on tour. Again, I am sorry to have to move the dates, but I promise to come see you when the time is right!”
Bionic will be her first album of new music since 2006’s Back to Basics.
