London: Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle will headline her first solo tour of the US this autumn. The 53-year-old former `Britain`s Got Talent` singer, who has sold 19 million albums worldwide, will begin her trek across North America on October 8 in San Diego, California, reportedly.

Boyle will be performing songs from her five studio records in Phoenix, Atlanta, Louisville, Ft Lauderdale and Sarasota through the end of the year.

"This is a brilliant moment for me. I am so very proud to be announcing that I will be performing in my very own tour in the USA. This really is fantastic," Boyle said.

"The past five years have been incredible and it just keeps getting better. I have spoken so often about wanting to tour America and be able to visit different cities for the first time, I`m so excited," she said.

It was recently announced that Boyle will star in an upcoming television drama about a singing lighthouse attendant. A feature film about her life is also in the works.
