Alexandra Burke has announced dates for her debut UK Tour.
The All Night Long Tour 2011 will kick off on January 20th, with some 18 dates across the UK including a date at the HMV Hammersmith Apollo on February 10th.
The Islington star, whose single 'Start Without You' is currently No. 1 on the Big Top 40 , told us shes already started planning her stage show: Ive already designed the show in my head but cant decide what the stage will be like. Im having meetings next week to work out what I really want but Ive always taken inspiration from other artists as I think its important we bounce off each other, but I just cant wait to get it going.
Alexandra is currently working on her new album, after celebrating her third No.1 single. She told us: The support Ive seen with this single is amazing. I cannot be everybodys cup of tea, so if you dont like it I just hope it makes you smile. It made smile, the first time I heard it and I thought this is me. I have to record it.
Her debut No.1 album 'Overcome' will get a re-issue before Christmas, with five new tracks. A track written by Bruno Mars is being added to the album as well as a new collaboration. She told us that, yes, there is another duet on the new album, with an amazing group- but thats all I can tell you...". . Wonder who it is?!
