Selena Gomez tour coming to Tampa

Singer and actor Selena Gomez announced a 56-city world tour on Monday — the former Disney darling's first — including a return to her Spring Breakers stomping grounds in Tampa Bay.

The tour, in support of her summer album, will begin Aug. 14 and will arrive at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Oct. 30.

She premiered the single Come & Get It from her forthcoming album in a Bollywood-inspired number Sunday night on the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. Wild-haired, barefoot and flanked by a harem of dancers, the performance displayed a more mature seductress image.

But Gomez had already put away the mouse ears with the release of the R-rated Spring Breakers, filmed in and around St. Pete Beach with loads of nudity, drug taking and blazing guns.

The confident mantra-single Come & Get It is available everywhere as Gomez launches a TV blitz will that will include an appearance Tuesday on Ellen and a performance on Dancing With The Stars that night, as well as an April 24 appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.

But she hasn't left the mouse totally behind. Gomez has also been nominated for and will perform at the Radio Disney Music Awards on April 27.

Tickets for select cities of the tour will be available in a presale on April 17 and to the general public on April 20 at Check for details.
