The 2012 Summer Tour was a co-headlining concert tour by American pop-rock singer Kelly Clarkson and American alternative rock band The Fray. It supported Clarkson's fifth studio album, Stronger (2011), and The Fray's third studio album, Scars & Stories (2012). Beginning in July 2012, the tour predominately visited North America for thirty shows.[1] Most of the shows on the tour were held in outdoor amphitheatres.

Background[edit]

While promoting her forthcoming television series Duets on On Air with Ryan Seacrest, Clarkson (along with The Fray frontman Isaac Slade) announced the tour.[2] Previously, the two artists performed together at "Miracle on State Street", a radio festival by WTMX in Chicago. Illinois.[3] During The Fray's set, Clarkson was invited onstage to perform "The Christmas Song". It was this performance that sparked the collaboration. Clarkson states,

"We were kind of doing a radio circuit together and we did a couple together. We got to sing a Christmas song together on stage and we just sounded really good together, so I was like: 'Man, we should tour or something.'" If you want to see us both together we’re going to maybe sing together in the show as well. It will be cool."[4]
