Kelly Clarkson is hitting the road on her first solo headline tour.

Clarkson, winner of the first “American Idol” competition, will open “The Breakaway Tour” March 30 in Tulsa, Okla. The tour will end in Vancouver, British Columbia, May 29.

“Nothing makes me happier than being on the road,” the 22-year-old singer said in a statement Tuesday. “I can’t wait to see the fans and perform my new material.”

Clarkson will perform in mostly theater-size venues, which she says “will be a great opportunity for me to connect with my die-hard fans in an intimate setting.”

Other stops on the 34-city tour include New York, Los Angeles and Chicago.

Her second album, “Breakaway,” features two singles: the title track and “Since U Been Gone.”
