“And now I get the chance to create a brand new show and bring it to them in North America, and around the world.”

She also went on to say that hse was ‘very excited about this tour and [her] new album… coming later this year’.

While speaking to USA Today, the singer – who collaborated with Sia on her new album – said: “I like to sing these songs, and incorporate a few new songs. I would like this to be the most spectacular tour.

“The thing I can say right now, we’re still in the process of putting it together, is that it’s not going to be the Las Vegas show. 

“The biggest news today, is I will be driving the bus on tour.”
