Lucy Rose blossoms with spring 2013 UK tour

Acclaimed singer and Bombay Bicycle Club performer to perform largest headline shows yet, tickets on sale now

After a steady early career supporting indie hopefuls Bombay Bicycle Club, Lucy Rose's CV has swollen considerably since forming her own band and getting attention from the likes of BBC 6 Music.

Columbia Records signed her up early last year, she performed at several festivals to get her name about, including Hop Farm a few metres away from Bob Dylan AND even released her own tea. Rosey lee - tea, it sort of makes sense. Except that it's called Builder Grey, apparently. I'll have one suger please, easy on the milk.

More importantly, her debut-album appeared in September 2012 and immediately catapulted her into the limelight and the not-so-unlucky #13 spot. Suddenly, all of the media exposure was starting to yield demand and singles such as "Scar", "Red Face" and "Lines" began to become playlist favourites. However, live headlining shows have been sporadic at best, something which the singer is looking to remedy with the announcement of a pretty weighty UK and Ireland tour in the spring.

Her month-long jaunt will begin in Leeds on 27th April, followed by the likes of (deep breath) Sheffield, Lincoln, York, Belfast, Dublin, Shepherd's Bush, Falmouth, Norwich and finally Birmingham, besides a dozen others!

Tickets are on sale now, priced from £12 (£13.50 for London).
