The Doll Domination Tour is the second headlining world tour by The Pussycat Dolls. The tour tour began January 18, 2009 in Scotland and finished in Lebanon on July 31, 2009. This would be the Dolls' final tour before their disbandment in 2010. Between the first two legs of their tour, the Dolls' supported the first leg of Britney Spears' Circus Tour in North America. Jessica Sutta broke her ribs during the first Sydney show and left the group performing as a foursome for the remaining of the tour. The Dolls' would reunite ten years later in 2019 for a X Factor performance as well as a new album and tour in 2020. Melody Thornton, however, would not be rejoining opting to focus on her solo career.

The Doll Domination Tour would gross $14.3 million with 231,711 fans attending according to Billboard's boxscore.

Background[]

In August 2008, in an interview with FemaleFirst.co.uk, Ashley Roberts said that their world tour would start January 2009 adding "we're gonna be hitting everywhere around the world and taking over." The tour was officially announced on October 7, 2008. Initial dates were confirmed in the UK with Ne-Yo tapped as a support act. The following month Lady Gaga was announced as an opening act in Europe and in Oceania which marked their first time touring there, while the US shows were to be announced shortly. On December 2, 2008, Britney Spears announced the first leg of twenty-five dates in the US for The Circus Starring Britney Spears with The Pussycat Dolls as the opening act. The tour kicked off on January 18 in Aberdeen, Scotland with the first leg ending in Belgrade, Serbia. Before heading to the Oceania shows, The Pussycat Dolls supported Spears on her tour visiting 27 venues in North America. Following Oceania, they visited Asia and North America and in July they visited England and Ireland for various festivals. Eight weeks before the tour started Jimmy Iovine stated that the group had sold 150,000 out of 160,000.
