Fantasia Says The Sketchbook Tour Will Be Her Last

Grammy winner Fantasia revealed during a Q&A with the Steve Harvey Morning Show that The Sketchbook Tour will be her last.

The R&B songstress is currently on tour performing songs from her latest number one album Sketchbook with Robin Thicke, Tank and The Bonfyre.

Recently while on her tour bus, Fantasia participated in the morning show’s “ask anything chat.” One fan asked if it’s true her current tour will be her last. Fantasia responded saying, “This is true.”

“It’s been 16 years for me,” said Fantasia. “The way that I perform and as much as I give — and I can’t help it. It takes a lot of me.”

Having witnessed her sing live and having sung behind on her stage, I’ll say Fantasia definitely leaves her all on the stage. She delivers an electrifying performance every night. She still plans to release music and perform, just not in tour format.

Touring can truly be exhausting and take a lot out of you. Contemporary favorites like Bruno Mars and Beyoncé have take ample time to recuperate after a tour.

“I’d rather prepare shows where there’s like spot dates/one-offs and do it that way,” said Fantasia. “[…] So if you have not seen the tour, you need to come and see it cuz’ we’ve put a lot into it.”

The Sketchbook Tour kicked off in October, but there are still a few dates left to catch it. (Note: The Shreveport performance has occurred.)
