Adele is coming to a city near you 

The 27-year-old "Hello" singer's record label announced Monday that she will return to North America for her first tour in five years. The first North American concert is scheduled for July 5 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn.

Tickets go on sale Dec. 17 at 10 a.m. local time via her official website.

When Adele last went on tour in 2011, many concerts were canceled and postponed as she battled laryngitis, a chest infection and a vocal cord hemorrhage. The latter required surgery and eventually forced the "Skyfall" singer to cancel 16 of her shows in the U.S. and the U.K.

The Grammy winner told Rolling Stone in early November that she was giving herself until Christmas to decide whether to hit the road again. "When I've sat down and thought, 'What can I do to bring something new to the table?' It was just like, 'Tour.' Because I haven't done it properly." Still, the threat of more throat issues looms large. "If my throat goes, then I'll never be able to do a tour again," she said. "I'll be able to get my throat fixed again and do studio work, but do I want to do something and then fail at it and be too scared to ever try it again?"

Adele recently played her first full concert in over four years at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The performance, "Adele Live in New York City," will air tonight on NBC at 10 p.m. ET.
