The tour will kick off November 18 in Minneapolis and will make stops in Detroit, New Orleans, Los Angeles and San Francisco, among other cites.

“It’s always exciting to add new songs,” Setzersaid in a release. “I’m thinking about opening with ‘Rockin Around the Christmas Tree.’ We have never done that one before.”
