KATIE Melua will kick off her European autumn tour this year with a run of seven UK shows including a date at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.
The 27-year-old Georgian-born beauty will be performing songs from all five of her studio albums, including her new record Secret Symphony.
As well as singing her more familiar tracks such as The Closest Thing To Crazy and Nine Million Bicycles, Katie is looking forward to playing the new songs.
She said: “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.”
Katie has sold more than 11 million albums to date.
