Alexandra Burke has announced a comeback music tour for September 2018.

Tickets for dates across the UK from London to Glasgow go on sale from next Friday, 26th January.

A decade after winning The X Factor, pop sensation Alexandra Burke today announces that she will be embarking on her ‘The Truth Is’ UK tour this autumn. Her first UK headline tour since 2010, ‘The Truth Is’ will see Alexandra take her infamous soulful voice on the road for a 13 date tour around the country.

The tour – which follows the singer’s recent triumphant journey as finalist on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing - kicks off on 1 September at Southend’s Cliffs Pavilion.

Alexandra will then perform at major venues across the UK, including the iconic London Palladium, before finishing at Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on 18 September.

Alexandra will perform songs from her eagerly-anticipated new album ‘The Truth Is’ which is released by Decca on 9 March. The new album is Alexandra’s third studio record and features a host of original tracks showcasing her phenomenal voice and songwriting talent.

Fans at the touring shows will enjoy these new songs, as well the No.1 smash hits including ‘Hallelujah’, ‘Bad Boys’ and many more.

Alexandra said: “I am delighted to be going back on the road again with brand new music from my album ‘The Truth is’. This album is incredibly personal to me, I have poured my heart and soul into this and it reflects the incredible journey I’ve been through – highs and lows, love and loss.

"I love meeting my fans in their home towns so I can’t wait to see you all in September with my new show!”

2018 year marks 10 years since Alexandra won the fifth series of The X Factor, performing alongside Beyoncé in a live final watched by over 10 million viewers.

Her winner's song - a cover of the late Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ - went on to sell over 100,000 copies in a day and over a million within a month.

A debut number 1 album followed before Alexandra took to the West End stage, starring as Rachel Marron in the highly acclaimed musical, The Bodyguard.
