She’s still the X Factor’s finest hour, and with her second album Echo set to wow fans, [[Leona Lewis]] is embarking on a summer arena tour in 2010.
The 10-date tour comes on the back of an intimite fan-only gig Leona held at the Hackney Empire. She was well received by fans and press alike, and now plans to start off on her first ever solo tour of the UK, starting in May 2010.
Speaking about the tour, Leona says:
I can’t wait to get out on tour and see everyone, I’m really looking forward to putting on a great show. I had such a fun night at my recent show at the Hackney Empire and it’s given me a real taste for it. Over the last few years I’ve had some amazing experiences and sung in some really interesting places but it’s going to be great to be able to perform all my own material on my very own tour. It’s a dream come true.
While Leona has managed to make a number of one-off appearances on shows like [[The X Factor (UK TV Series)| The X Factor]], the closing ceremony of the Beijing Olympics and Nelson Mandela’s birthday, she has yet to undertake a full tour.
And from what I hear, the tour promises to be quite the extravaganza – with Leona not only displaying the usual glittering array of glamorous frocks:
As well as the biggest and most breathtaking voice in music, concertgoers can expect stunning state of the art staging and visual effects as well as choreography and an incredible live band. Leona will play songs from her smash hit debut album Spirit as well as tracks from her forthcoming new studio album Echo, including the brand new single Happy
Leona’s new album, Echo, comes out on 16th November. I’ve got a preview copy, and can tell you it’s really good. Tickets for the tour go on sale on 27th November at 9:30am.
