Sixteen years after rising to fame as America's first ever American Idol and 13 years after Steve Carell famously blurted her name during his painful on-screen chest waxing in The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Kelly Clarkson is now contemplating the Meaning Of Life.

Grammy-Award winner, children's author, a friend of the Obama's, and happy-go-lucky coach on NBC's The Voice, Clarkson will embark on her first headlining trek in three years in support of her eighth studio record. The 28-date "Meaning Of Life Tour" will kick-off in California starting in January and will visit Little Caesars Arena on Feb. 21.

Though Meaning Of Life earned many a spot on best of 2017 lists and a slew of glowing reviews including Newsday calling it a "soulful stunner" and "the best album of her career," we just can't break away from the pop-anthem-rock crossover that is her 2004 hit "Since U Been Gone". And now that Clarkson is back on the road, we can breathe for the first time.

Tickets go on sale Monday, Sept. 24 at 10 a.m. and start at $29. Purchases can be made here.
