Original American Idol victor Kelly Clarkson has rescheduled the several tour dates she was forced to cancel earlier this month (SEP05), after a bout of bronchitis.

The SINCE U BEEN GONE singer, who performed under a constant flow of water at last month's (AUG05) MTV Video Music Awards, was initially forced to call off two shows in California after falling sick. Days later she called off shows in Nevada and Washington.

But after recovering, Clarkson has announced new dates, which include shows in Texas, Washington, Nevada and California, and will kick off on 7 December (05) in Hidalgo, Texas, wrapping in Spokane, Washington, on 18 December (05).
