Katie Melua will kick off her European autumn tour this year with a run of seven shows in Britain.

Starting in Ipswich on October 8 2012 and calling at London, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow, the UK leg will end in Gateshead on October 16. The tour continues across the Channel with an extensive run of theatre and arena shows throughout Europe.

The 27 year old singer will be performing songs from all five of her studio albums, including her new record ‘Secret Symphony’ which is released on March 5. As well as singing her more familiar tracks such as ‘The Closest Thing To Crazy’ and ‘Nine Millions Bicycles’, Katie is looking forward to playing the new songs: “I really enjoyed recording ‘Secret Symphony’, there is a simplicity to it that I love and the songs are beautiful to sing.

Playing a song live on stage brings something new each time and it is exciting to share that unique performance, that special moment, with the audience.”

During the summer Katie, who has sold more than 11 million albums and is one of Britain’s most successful artists of the last decade, will be performing at festivals and outdoor concerts throughout Europe including Hampton Court Palace Festival on June 22.
