Britney Spears is coming to Nassau Coliseum on Aug. 2.

Spears announced her tour, which kicks off June 17 in Sacramento, during her “Good Morning America” appearance this morning. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. April 9 through Ticketmaster, but prices have not been released yet. Enrique Iglesias will open. (UPDATENo, he's not.)

The tour news is all part of today's Britney blitz, surrounding the release of her “Femme Fatale” album today, and high-profile appearances on “Good Morning America” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

On her “GMA” appearance -- where she performed “Hold It Against Me,” “Big Fat Bass,” and “Till the World Ends” – Spears didn't offer much more insight into her music or her life than she has in the run-up to the release date.

“I love music,” she told Robin Roberts and Sam Champion, as LCD fireworks went off on her bra. “It's my world. It's my everything. So I'm so happy to be able to share it with all of them.”
OK, then!
