Melanie C announces 'The Sea Live' 2012 tour - tickets Friday 9th December
Chirpy, cheery, sporty, spicy, Scouse troubadour Melanie C is enjoying something of an overdue renaissance. Since the Spice Girls packed in the whole 'girl power' shtick in 2001, Melanie Chisholm has experienced mixed fortunes both in and out of the charts.
After the tail feathers and bikini of Geri Halliwell had finally left the charts alone and Mel B and Victoria Beckham had also flirted with solo careers, to varying degrees of success, it fell to Emma Bunton and Melanie C to carry on the Spice Girls' pop tradition.
Melanie C had already scored a No 3 hit with Bryan Adams on 1998's 'When You're Gone' and released her solo debut, 'Northern Star', before the girls split and Chisholm went on to pastures new. She topped the charts twice in 2000, once with 'Never be the Same Again', which featured the late Lisa 'Left-Eye' Lopez, and then with 'I Turn to You', all taken from the three-times Platinum debut album.
A decade later and Melanie C's northern star is once again on the rise, with the release of her fifth studio album, 'The Sea', in September 2011. An indifferent chart performance means little these days and it is Melanie C's live profile that has soared, selling out gigs in Liverpool and London this month.
Melanie C will take her new record and surprisingly full back catalogue of noughties pop hits on the road with six dates beginning in February at the Manchester Club Academy, followed by Newcastle, Glasgow, Sheffield and London (Islington Academy), before the final gig of 'The Sea Live' UK tour in Birmingham on Friday 2nd March 2012.
We will have tickets available when they go on sale at 9AM on Friday 9th December, priced £16.50 for London and £15 for other venues.
We also have resale tickets available now for Friday's Scala gig.
