The Battlefield Tour[1] was a concert tour by American pop singer Jordin Sparks in support of her second studio album Battlefield. It is Sparks' first headlining tour. The tour consisted of mostly general assembly venues such as theaters, ballrooms, amusement parks, and casinos. It was initially only set to visit 15 cities nationwide. On April 22, several dates were rescheduled in order to expand the tour to 35 cities across the nation.[2] The tour started on May 1, 2010 in Uncasville, Connecticut and ended on July 18, 2010 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In an interview with AI Now, Sparks spoke of the tour "Hopefully, maybe in March I will be doing a tour. I would love to do a House of Blues theater type tour so it’s a little more intimate...it’s really fulfilling after you get off a stage like that, it’s really awesome because it’s like you can say 'hey, I left everything out there.'"[3]
