SoulO, Nick Lachey's debut album, may have been a clunker - but with his second effort standing strong on the charts, a solo tour is now in the works for the ex-Mr. Simpson.

What's Left of Me debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Album Chart and sold more than 500,000 units. As a result, Jive Records label on Monday announced Lachey's first-ever solo concert schedule. It will take place across North America this September or the first time. These shows will be performed in a series of smaller theatres, allowing intimate concerts with fans," Jive said in a statement.
