The 'Call My Name' singer wants to make her debut outing as "amazing as possible".
Cheryl Cole is reportedly taking inspiration from such stars as Rihanna and Katy Perry as she prepares to head out on her debut solo arena tour later this year.
The '3 Words' singer will embark on the 11-date 'A Million Lights' jaunt in October and is planning to make the outing as "amazing" as possible and is not afraid to spend big in order to do so.
"Cheryl wants to make her show as amazing as possible and if that means spending a load of cash on it, so be it," a source told The Sun. "If it were a longer tour, she would make money back from ticket sales. But the ideas she's coming up with at the moment are not going to come cheap."
The tour will kick off on the 3rd October in Belfast and head to such places as Birmingham, Manchester before two consecutive nights in Newcastle.
Jay-Z and Kanye West's recent 'Watch The Throne' tour is also said to be a key source of inspiration for the 'Parachute' singer.

Meanwhile, Cheryl recently unveiled the official music video to her latest single 'Under The Sun'.
The Girls Aloud star is also due to release her autobiography in October in what publisher HarperCollins described as "her full story in her own words."
