There were rumors that the songbird would not show-up for the first night after she failed to turn-up for rehearsals but she was spotted arriving in Birmingham in a chauffeur-driven Mercedes. 

“Susan has really bounced back after her treatment at The Priory and I’m convinced she will take part in the tour,” Boyle’s brother continued. “But it is important that people realize that this is not just the ‘Susan Boyle Show’ and that they are going to see some other great acts performing too.”

He was also re-assured that the American Idol guru Simon Cowell – who is going to manage his sister’s career – will keep her on track after her recent health set-back.

“I was very pleased to hear what Simon was telling me and I’m convinced that they will look after Susan while coming-up with a plan that will promote her career in the Uk and America too,” Gerry revealed. “The most important thing is that Susan trusts him and she is raring to go and to really launch her musical career.”

The Britain’s Got Talent Tour consists of 23 dates around the UK until July 5, 2009, at which time Boyle is expected to fly over to America for a promotional push which will be orchestrated by Cowell.
