    “Meaning of Life is the album I always wanted to make and I am so excited to finally be able to tour it,” Clarkson said in a statement. “Even while recording it, I couldn’t wait for people to experience the music live, to not only hear it, but feel it. It has taken almost a year of planning, and I can’t wait to see y’all on the road!”

    This is Clarkson’s first tour in three years. Her last was 2015’s “Piece by Piece Tour.” Opening acts for varying dates are Kelsea Ballerini and Brynn Cartelli.
