Fresh from a walk-on part in the BBC's coverage of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, Paloma has recently released her eagerly anticipated second album, Fall to Grace. Ably supported by lead single 'Picking Up the Pieces', 'Fall to Grace' reached No 2 on the UK chart. It was Paloma Faith's highest album chart position to date and confirms that she is here to stay.
Further proof came with the announcement of a UK and Ireland tour early next year which will kick off in Dublin on 21st January. In addition to the previously-announced shows, Paloma has announced a further string of shows in new venues, as well as an extra for Manchester.
This means that after her anticipated Hammersmith gig on 7th February next year, Faith will continue on to Cardiff on the 9th, followed by more newies in Sheffield, Leicester, Blackpool, Plymouth, Reading and finally (for now) Cambridge on the 17th. There is also that additional Manchester show to mention - 24th January is the date (straight after the first Apollo show which is now starting to sell through).
We will have tickets available from 9am on Friday 13th July 2012, priced from around £20. Don't forget that ahead of the 2013 dates, Paloma Faith has another busy summer including appearances at The Summer Series 2012 (at Somerset House, two shows) and BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park 2012 - we have tickets on sale now.
In relation to her previously announced 2013 shows, many are starting to show signs of selling out including Wolverhampton, Nottingham, Leeds, Glasgow and York.
