Adele is coming to the other side (of the Atlantic).

The British songstress, who has been breaking records with the release of her latest album, 25, announced the dates and locations for her North American tour in support of the album. Kicking off in St. Paul, Minn. in July of 2016, Adele will criss-cross the continent, ending up in Mexico City on Nov. 15.

This is her first U.S. tour in 5 years. When she last went on tour in 2011, many stops were canceled and postponed as she battled vocal chord-related illnesses, eventually requiring surgery. She recently played her first full concert in over four years at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, which will air tonight on NBC at 10 p.m. ET.

Adele, whose new album has shattered sales records, on Monday announced an extensive tour of the United States, Canada and Mexico after a five-year gap.

The British ballad singer, who has already unveiled a calendar for shows across Europe in 2016, will start the North American leg on July 5 in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The tour will include six concerts each in New York’s Madison Square Garden and the Staples Centre in Los Angeles, two of the most lucrative venues for pop artists.

Her tour will culminate with two dates in Mexico City in November.

Adele has broken early sales records with her long-awaited third album 25, which has sold more than five million copies in the United States in less than a month.
