LONDON, UK, 4th December 2012 - Fourteen-time Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, and producer Alicia Keys announces an additional London date at O2 arena on the UK leg of her forthcoming Girl On Fire - The Tour. This announcement comes hot off the heels of the first O2 arena date on the tour selling out shortly after the tickets went on sale last Friday (30th November 2012) and Alicia Keys' fifth studio album 'GIRL ON FIRE' being the highest charting artist album in the iTunes chart last week.
Girl On Fire - The Tour will see Keys set the UK alight next May with arena dates in Liverpool, Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham and London.
"I'm so excited to be touring again and coming back in the UK!!! I'm looking forward to performing and feeling the energy of the crowd-there's nothing like it. I plan to bring you something Emotional and exciting! I'm a brand new me!"
Since the 2001 release of her monumental debut album, songs in A minor, Keys has built an unparalleled repertoire of hits and accomplishments with more than 30 million albums and 30 million singles sold worldwide, and over one hundred award wins, including fourteen Grammy Awards, eleven Billboard Music Awards and three MTV Europe Awards.
Keys' most recently released, multi-platinum fourth studio album, Element of Freedom, sold one million copies in the UK alone and was one of Britain's top 10 best selling albums of 2010.
The first single off the album of the same name, "Girl On Fire" featuring Nicki Minaj, saw Alicia Keys score her highest week one of single sales ever in the UK. The album, released by RCA Records on 26th November, was written and produced by Alicia alongside collaborators Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Bruno Mars), Salaam Remi (Amy Winehouse, Nas), Frank Ocean, Emile Sande, and Jamie XX among others.
The additional London date for Girl On Fire - The Tour will be at London 02 arena on 31st May 2013. Tickets will go sale on 7th December through www.aeglive.co.uk. Tickets for all other dates on the tour are on sale now through www.aeglive.co.uk.
