“’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. “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."
A seasoned live performer, Clarkson most recently headlined the 2018 U.S. Open opening night ceremony with a medley of her greatest hits. The past year also saw Clarkson host and perform on the 2018 Billboard Music Awards in addition to performances on the American Music Awards, Today Show Summer Concert Series, Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular and CMT Awards.
