Paloma Faith Performing Live

Paloma Faith performing in Dublin, Ireland last night (January 21, 2013)

It's traditionally a quiet month for live music, but try telling that to Paloma Faith who has just started a lengthy tour of the UK and Ireland. Faith was in the Irish capital of Dublin last night (January 21, 2013) after kicking off procedings at the Ulster Hall in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the previous evening.

Paloma Faith spent much of last year trying to crack America, but she's back on home soil for the forseeable future

Known for her extravagant dress sense, Faith looked fairly toned down by her ridiculous standards, wearing a sultry blue number with elbow-length gloves and a bonnet that left her looking like something out of the Roaring 20's. Accompanied by a full band and backing singers, the star looked happy to be back in her native UK, not that she's had a bad time of it out in the States.

Paloma Faith tours the UK up until the middle of next month

Faith signed to Epic Records in the summer of last year and subsequently spent a good deal of time touring the country, gaining plaudits along the way. She's not enjoyed chart success over there as yet, but with One Direction and The Wanted both making a big splash across the Atlantic, there's perhaps a sense that the Americans are enjoying what Britain's pop finest have to offer.
