“The California Dreams tour is coming to the USA…And Canada! You can’t forget the Canadians, they get really p***** if you do.”

When asked why she had chosen the platform to make the announcement, she joked:

“This is Facebook. You’re like the government.”

The concert is said to be really awesome and interactive, she will use Facebook places and fans can ‘check in’ to the tour venues, and receive prizes. Attendees can also use Twitter and Facebook while at the venues, and their tweets will appear on a screen during the concert.
