Emeli Sande will head out on a UK theatre tour in November and December in support of her upcoming third studio album 'Real Life'
Emeli Sande has announced an extensive UK tour in support of her upcoming album Real Life. Tickets for the tour go on sale at 9am on Fri 14 Jun.
The 'Read All About It' hitmaker will release her third studio album on September 13, and will kick off her theatre run at Liverpool's Royal Liverpool Philharmonic on November 16.
Emeli tweeted: "So thrilled to announce I'm bringing #RealLife on a UK tour!! I can't wait to see you and sing these new songs together as well as some of the old favourites too!'
Before playing a one-off show at London's Sadler's Wells Theatre in May, Emeli's last live performance was on The X Factor in December.
The 'Hurts' hitmaker has learned two important lessons over the years, that cutting back on alcohol and meditating before shows is the most valuable practice pre-show ritual for giving her best performance, although she admitted she loves the odd glass of bubbly.
She told BANG Showbiz: "Warming up is very, very important. Trying not to drink too much is a very good idea. Sobriety ... I like a bit of champagne. I guess trying to stay healthy as much as you can, meditating and getting into the right zone to be on stage.Going on every night you really have to make sure spiritually you are in the right place. That's been the biggest lesson for me."
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old singer made an emotional comeback with the record's lead single 'Sparrow' in March.
She explained: "'Sparrow' is a song to bring hope in all its forms, a song to lift us out of the darkness, and let us soar. It's hard to find poetry in the world anymore, I miss the romance and I just want to breathe some love into humanity."
Since the release of her 2016 LP Long Live the Angels Emeli has featured on 2017's 'Higher' with rapper Giggs and 'Survive' with Don Diablo and Gucci Mane, plus Naughty's song 'Bungee Jumping'.
