Following the release of her new studio album ‘I Am’, Leona announces details of her upcoming 2016 UK tour, her first UK tour in three years.
Leona will embark on the 14 date tour from February 21st at Liverpool’s Empire and will finish at the Plymouth Pavilions on March 11th including two nights at the London Palladium.
Since her a meteoric rise to global fame, Leona’s incredible voice has captivated millions of people across the world. She’s broken countless sales records and smashed chart records universally. Her 2010 Labyrinth Tour won her critical acclaim as well as reinforcing her position as one of the most successful British female artists to date. The tour will see Leona performing tracks taken from her brand new album as well as some her biggest hits including; ‘Bleeding Love’, ‘Run’, ‘Better In Time’ and ‘Happy’.
‘I Am’ is an upbeat, powerful and defiant assertion of Lewis’ individuality, which demonstrates that striking, almost ethereal vocal range and a voice flooded with emotion. It is the same instantly recognisable voice that saw her become a huge international success, smash chart records and open the door for the British chart invasion that followed in the US, but with a new found confidence and strength that we haven’t heard before. ‘Stripped-back, powerful ballads form the backbone of Leona’s fifth album. From the rapturous beats of ‘Fire Under My Feet’ to the mellower ‘Thunder’, each song packs an emotional punch.’ says Glamour Magazine.
Speaking about going on tour Leona says, ‘So so excited to announce a 2016 UK Tour! I cannot wait to get out and perform all the new songs for you and some old favourites too!’
‘I Am’ is the sound of an artist coming of age.
