After taking a two-year break from music to care for his son, Michael Buble is heading back on the road.
The musician will kick off a tour Feb. 13 in Tampa, Florida, and wrap up April 6, in Tacoma, Washington.
“I’m going to go back to what I was made to do," Buble said in a statement, according to Billboard. “I’m going to come back to a world that needs love and romance and laughter more than it has in a long time. I’m going to be a conduit to that. This is the greatest record I’ve ever made.”
The singer’s 5-year-old son, Noah, was diagnosed with liver cancer two years ago. Buble and his wife, Luisana Lopilato, relocated to Los Angeles while the little boy underwent treatment, and Buble retreated from music to be with his family. Noah is now in remission and, according to the family, doing well in his recovery.
Tickets for North American shows go on sale to general audiences Nov. 19 at 10 a.m. local time. Members of the singer’s Bungalow-B fan club can get presale tickets starting Nov. 13 at 10 a.m. local time.
A CD or digital copy of Buble’s new album, “Love,” stylized as a heart emoji, will be included in each full-priced ticket purchase. The album is out Nov. 16. Fans who preorder the album will receive instant downloads of “When I Fall in Love,” “Love You Anymore” and “Such a Night.”
Billboard reported that the Grammy winner will be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame the same day of the album’s release.
