Fantasia Barrino to tour this fall

fantasia-barrinoImage Credit: Johnny Nunez/WireImage.comAny doubts about how Fantasia Barrino has recovered from her difficult summer will be put to rest this fall when she hits the road for her Back to Me tour. She’ll play 30 dates, beginning with a Nov. 4 stop in Richmond, VA. Kandi and Eric Benet have been announced as her special guests. Check out the full list of venues.

Barrino attempted suicide on Aug. 9, overdosing on aspirin and sleeping aids after a barrage of negative press focused on her relationship with a married man. The drama was captured for her VH1 reality show, Fantasia For Real, leading some to ask if the show was too real.

Is this a comeback you’re rooting for? Touring is one way to put the focus back on her music.

    Fantasia is the spitting image of an acorn. Is there no one in her life who can be a voice of reason about her appearance?

      In her defense, she looked terrific on Oprah.

      This woman is the very picture of a media pig, who will do anything to get attention. I wonder how her little girl felt when tasia said she “tried” to kill herself cause she had nothing to live for.

    Fantasia – Gurl. . . don’t be tripping but you don’t have a chance to get your fleeting fame back – you should go back to your drama filled life and dream of having from real talent. . . at least get some self-R-E-S-P-E-C-T

    fantasia is the best live singer ever

  • Gregoire

    Actually, her album is selling really well. I think she can overcome her hardships and get back on top. She really is amazing live, worth the money.

    Her head really does look like an acorn in the photo.

    Everyone does some foolish stuff sometime in their life. She is no different then anyone else. Life is full of lessons to be learn. I think she will be fine, and be very successful. Good luck Fantasia, don’t let words from unknown losers, destroy all the positive power in your soul. You are in a good position to keep moving forward. Good luck, and God bless you, and your daughter. I will see you on your tour. Hyflash
