NEW YORK - Now that Nick Lachey's new solo album is a hit, he's ready to go on the road. Lachey, 32, will tour this fall in support of "What's Left of Me," which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's album chart in May and has sold more than 500,000 copies, Jive Records announced Monday.
The 26-city tour opens Sept. 20 in Albany, N.Y., with stops including Washington, Chicago, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Indianapolis. The tour will end Oct. 26 in St. Louis.
"These shows will be performed in a series of smaller theaters, allowing intimate concerts with fans," the record label said in a statement.
In "What's Left of Me," Lachey sings about the pain of his breakup with Jessica Simpson. The couple, who starred in the MTV reality show "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica," recently divorced after three years of marriage.
Simpson, 26, starred as Daisy Duke in the 2005 film "The Dukes of Hazzard."
