The Stars Dance Tour is a world tour by Selena Gomez in support of her solo debut studio album Stars Dance. The tour was her fourth overall tour and her first solo world tour, due to Selena Gomez & the Scene's ongoing hiatus. The tour visited North America and Europe in 2013. The tour was going to continue in 2014 throughout Asia and Australia but Gomez cancelled it due to personal reasons.

Background[edit]

On April 15, 2013, Gomez announced that she would be touring North America and Europe from August to November in support of her album Stars Dance. When asked about the Tour, Gomez stated:

“It’s going to be a bigger show. I’m excited. I’ve been dancing a lot and I just want to entertain people and I’m super stoked.” Selena further added: “I kind of missed shows when it used to just be about the dancing and the performing as opposed to how big and elaborate the stage is so I kind of want to get back to that. My favorites were Britney Spears and Janet Jackson so I kind of want it to be a bit more dancing and make it about entertainment and about the show and the songs as opposed to how big the stage and effects are.”[1]

It was announced later that the tour would continue throughout Asia and Australia but in December 2013 Gomez released an statement saying that she decided to cancel the tour. Gomez stated:

“My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them. But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be. To my fans, I sincerely apologize and I hope you guys know how much each and every one of you mean to me.”[2]
