Story by Jack Foley

CHART-topping singer Adele has just announced UK tour dates for the spring, including a night at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.

Riding high on the success of her No.1 album 19, the singer will play nine dates starting in Cardiff in April and finishing up in London in May.

The dates are…

23 – Cardiff St David’s Hall
24 – Newcastle Tyne Theatre
26 – Edinburgh Queen Hall
28 – York Opera House
30 – Manchester Lowry

1 – Cambridge Corn Exchange
3 – Southampton Guildhall
4 – Birmingham Alexandra Theatre
6 – London Shepherd’s Bush Empire

At only 19 years of age, Adele is one of the hottest young songwriting prospects of 2008, having already topped the BBC’s Sound of 2008 poll at the beginning of the year.

Her debut album, 19, then went straight to the top of the UK chart in its first week and her single, Chasing Pavements, was a top 5 smash.
