A few weeks after the so-so selling release of her latest album The Spirit Indestructible, Nelly Furtado is proving that her spirit is indestructible by announcing a big Canadian tour. The slower sales of the album have had an effect on the tour though, with Furtado trading in stadiums for auditoriums, but you know what? I think I’ll like her more in a smaller space. Just cause you’re a pop star does not mean you need to play into the abyss that is a stadium. Her tour sees her playing in some really great spaces, which I think will be great for her fan base. It’s been six years since the “I’m like a bird” singer released her last English language album, so those fans have certainly been clamouring for some Nelly.
The tour will kick off in Furtado’s hometown of Victoria on the eighth day of 2013.
