Fresh off her Sunday Grammy win, Jennifer Hudson will kick off her first solo concert tour on April 2 in Philadelphia.
Hudson will co-headline the outing with R&B crooner Robin Thicke. Hudson’s official website has yet to post the dates, but people.com broke the news and tvguide.com says the five-week theater outing will include stops in Baltimore, Washington, D.C, New York City, Detroit, Atlanta, Memphis, St. Louis, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Dallas.
Following the murders of her mother, brother and nephew in October, Hudson kept an understandably low profile until Feb. 1’s Super Bowl. Her re-entry began with her performing “The National Anthem” at the big game, followed by her appearances at MusiCares’ tribute to Neil Diamond, at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy gala, and, then, at the Grammys, where she sang an emotional “You Pulled Me Through” that left hardly a dry eye in the crowd.
