Kelly Clarkson: I love Manchester
Kelly Clarkson has revealed her favourite city to play a gig - Manchester.
The former American Idol champion is kicking off her UK tour in the city next week, and told the Daily Star she can't wait.
She said: "Manchester is one of my favourite places to play, for some reason they are really rad and go nuts - they are easily my best audience."
The 27-year-old star said she hoped to have time to explore the city.
"This will be the first tour where I get some time off in between shows so I plan to check out the city properly," she said.
The My Life Would Suck Without You singer also revealed she was recording new tracks with an 80s vibe.
"It's turning out differently, like nothing I've released before," she said. "Some of it is very 80s influenced and some of it is singer/songwriter."
