Ashlee Simpson To Launch Tour In February

Singer's first headlining trek kicks off in Houston on February 2.

Following her “Saturday Night Live” lip-synching snafu, Ashlee Simpson insisted that anyone who had doubts about her ability to sing live should come see her in concert, and now they’ll have the chance to do just that.

The youngest Simpson is embarking on a tour early next year, her record label announced Tuesday (November 30). Her preparations to go on the road — culminating with the launch of her tour — will be featured on the second season of “The Ashlee Simpson Show,” which is slated to begin airing in the beginning of 2005.

Over two dozen dates have already been confirmed, starting February 2 in Houston and running through March 26 in Norfolk, Virginia. The trek — Simpson’s first headlining tour — is still being routed, with more dates expected to be added soon. Tickets will go on sale in mid-December.
