Leona Lewis announced last night on The X Factor that she will be embarking on a tour of the United Kingdom next spring. It seems only fitting for Lewis to break the news on the reality TV talent show, as she was crowned victor in the 2006 season (did you guys know that? I had no idea) and has since rocketed to fame. The London-born singer/songwriter will kick off her 2013 tour with a stop in Ipswich at the Regent Theatre on April 29. She'll play gigs in Nottingham, Newcastle, Oxford, and Manchester, as well as perform two shows at London's Royal Albert Hall on May 8 & 9. She will play her final show of the tour at Pavilions in Plymouth on May 18.
Lewis' tour announcement earlier this week couldn't have come at a better time, as the singer is dropping her new album this Friday. The record, titled Glassheart, is her third full-length studio release. The first single off the album, "Collide," debuted at No. 4 on the UK Top 40 Singles Chart when it premiered in September. The album is already receiving critical acclaim, with the Daily Mirror giving it four out of five stars.
