Her tour bus will probably be stocked with strollers, baby wipes and other assorted necessities for her young son, but everyone's favorite MILF, Christina Aguilera, is headed back on the road. British pop songstress Leona Lewis, who had a monster hit with "Bleeding Love" before sinking a like a stone with her follow-up album last year, will open the dates. Aguilera's 20-city tour will kick off on July 15.
The tour will support Aguilera's Bionic, which is due to impact record-selling establishments on June 8. It’s Xtina's first album since 2006 and she recorded the platter in her home studio, no doubt so she could spend more time with her son, Max. (I am assuming that as a new, young mom, Aguilera made things easy so she could spend "maximum" time with her son!) For Bionic, the pop star collaborated with a variety of musicians, including Sia, Le Tigre, Christopher "Tricky Stewart," Hill & Switch and Ladytron. She even sings the ballad, "Lift Me Up," which was written by Linda Perry, who also authored Aguilera's biggest hit, 2002’s "Beautiful." Perry once fronted alterna grunge band 4 Non-Blondes, for all the trivia buffs out there.
Fans that purchase tickets to the tour before June 4 will receive a download code to redeem a digital copy of the album on June 7, the day before release. So all the cool kids can get it a day early.
Tickets for the tour go on sale on May 21. All touring information can be located at ChristinaAguilera.com.
