The 'Dirty' hitmaker will embark on a 22-date North American run, her first since the 'Back to Basics Tour' in 2008, in support of her forthcoming LP, 'Liberation'.

The run of dates kick off on September 25 at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood in Fort Lauderdale.

The tour announcement comes hot off the heels of the star unveiling her first record since 2012's 'Lotus'.

The record - released on June 25 - includes the lead single 'Accelerate' featuring Ty Dolla $ign and 2 Chainz and 'Fall In line' with Demi Lovato.

The pop divas will debut the track live at the Billboard Music Awards on May 20 at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Christina recently confessed that she finds the prospect of touring daunting because she doesn't like being away from her children, Max, 10 - whom she has with ex-husband Jordan Bratman and Summer, three, her daughter with current partner Matthew Rutler.

She explained recently: "Touring is so frightening to me, because I am a mom first. It's part of why I stayed in the position I was [at 'The Voice'].

"It's easy to get comfortable and cushy in the same place and not have to worry about uprooting your kids.

"I've been putting myself on the back burner.

"It needs to happen. I'm looking forward to getting back out and actually showing my kids what mommy really does!"

Tickets for the tour go on sale at 10am on May 18, local time.
