NEW YORK (Billboard) - Canadian teen pop singer Justin Bieber will begin his first headlining tour of North America on June 23 in Hartford, Conn., he said Tuesday, a week before his new album hits stores.

The "My World" arena tour will visit 40 cities before wrapping on September 4 in Allentown, Pa.

The trek is named after Bieber's two albums, the upcoming "My World 2.0" and his November debut "My World," which has sold 998,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen Soundscan.
