On the tour, which comprises of 26 gigs across the country, Susan is required to sing two songs - her audition song I Dreamed A Dream and semi-final track Memory.
Susan Boyle had returned to 'Britain's Got Talent' finals, once again soaring with "I Dreamed a Dream."

Diversity received a 100,000 pound ($159,000 US dollars) prize and the chance to perform before Queen Elizabeth II at the Royal Variety Show.
