After the critically acclaimed release of her new album The Heart Speaks In Whispers, Corinne Bailey Rae has confirmed the dates for her first UK tour in five years as she brings her sensational live show to major cities across the country.
Starting in her hometown of Leeds, the nine-date tour will pass through Bristol, Glasgow, Newcastle, Brighton, Birmingham, Manchester and Cambridge, ending in London at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. See full dates below.
Both fans and critics have heaped superlatives on her captivating performances throughout the summer, including this year’s Glastonbury Festival, an astounding support set for Stevie Wonder at British Summer Time, Hyde Park as part of his Songs In The Key Of Life extravaganza, a huge UK arena tour with Lionel Ritchie and further shows at this year’s V Festival, Cornbury Festival and across the USA.
The Evening Standard has called her “[the] bewitching queen of British soul [who] oozes charisma…” upon seeing her in concert whilst the Daily Star claim she is simply “mesmerizing” live.
Corinne’s third studio album The Heart Speaks In Whispers, her first collection of new material for six years, also received rave reviews across the board upon its release in May. With MOJO hailing her resurgence as “a brilliant and very welcome return” and Q Magazine’s declaring Corinne is “getting it right again [with] sultriness and life-affirmation”, she has wowed both critics and fans alike.
