Keyshia Cole confirms spring 2013 UK tour
The US RnB sensation follows fifth album with rare British dates, tickets on sale now
It would be fair to surmise that R&B has a rough ride in the UK of late - where Mary J Blige, Toni Braxton and Eve once trod, the likes of Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Pink and Taylor Swift have muscled in with an adapted version of the genre.
Despite this curious state of affairs, it's still surprising that Keyshia Cole's only previous UK chart action was back in 2006 with the single "I Should Have Cheated", save for a guest spot on P Diddy's bigger hit "Last Night" the following year.
Back home, this lady has shifted three million-sellers, including her 2005 debut-album "The Way It Is" and the even bigger follow-up "Just Like You". Who said modern soul was dead?
Although much of her career has been enhanced by guest spots here and support slots there, Cole can turn a tune with the Monifahs, the Monicas and the Brandys of old and mix it with the big boys (and girls) of today.
To prove it, her new(ish) album "Woman to Woman" made it five US Top 10 albums in a row - rightly, it's probably about time she had another crack at Britain.
Her much-anticipated Woman to Woman tour will hit the UK in the spring, including Manchester on 30th May, London's IndigO2 on the 31st and Birmingham on 1st June.
Tickets are on sale now, priced at £26/£30.
