Kristin Chenoweth has announced plans for her first ever tour, kicking off in Seattle and concluding in her hometown of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. The singer will stop by Boston for a performance at the Opera House on Friday, June 8. Tickets for the concert, which range in price from $75 to $122, are now on sale through Ticketmaster.

“I’ve sung all over the place but I’ve never committed to a tour because of my schedule,” Chenoweth said in a recent interview with the Associated Press. “So now I’m finally doing it.. for me, it will be very emotional.”

The Tony-winning actress will be promoting her latest album Some Lessons Learned. Released last September, Chenoweth’s third album finds the singer exploring a more country-pop sound.

“Look at my recording career and it’s kind of funny. It’s all so different!” she said in a press release. “This album is more along the lines of what I grew up singing, like the music I sang in church in Oklahoma. When I was hired at 19 to sing at Opryland in Nashville, that’s all I wanted to do. I never anticipated my career going in all these great directions – which I’m grateful for! I’m finally getting to do what I want.”

Fans can also expect to hear material from Chenoweth’s Broadway shows, including “Popular” and “Wicked”, as well as her appearances on the hit Fox television show “Glee”. The show will also feature backup singers, dancers and choreography. The tour will be directed by Richard Jay-Alexander, who has staged shows for Bernadette Peters, Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler.
