After six years without public performances, Lee made a successful comeback winning the top prize in a TV reality show I am a Singer last year.

By naming her upcoming concert tour "18", the American-Chinese singer hopes to bring back the "courage, passion and curiosity of an 18-year-old," she said at the official kickoff of the tour in Shanghai.

Lee started her career in 1992 winning a new talent singing award in Hong Kong, and soon gained national fame with her sultry style and vigorous performances.

She was the first Chinese ethnic to perform at the Oscars, singing the best original song nomination A Love Before Time from the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in 2001. She has released a few English albums aside from dozens of Chinese albums, and her single Do You Want My Love entered the US music charts in 1999.

Last year's TV appearance won her a younger and newer fan group among Chinese audiences, and her trusted promoter, Timeless Treasure, convinced her that "if you put on a concert, many people will be coming".

The first leg of her "18" concert will take place at the Shenzhen Bay Sports Center on May 6, before going on to Beijing, Shanghai, Xi'an in Shaanxi province, Chengdu in Sichuan province, Hong Kong and Taipei, as well as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Toronto.
