KATIE Melua has announced a date at London’s Royal Albert Hall next May in support of her new album Pictures.

The talented singer-songwriter will perform at the prestigious venue on May 4.

Since bursting onto the scene in the summer of 2003, aged just 18, no one, least of all Katie, would have predicted what the next few years would hold for the teenager.

Now 23, Katie has sold almost 8 million albums. In 2006, she became the best selling British female in the world.

Awarded the Golden Camera Award for International Pop Artist at the start of 2007, Katie was presented with the Echo Award for International Female Artist in March 2007.

October 2007 saw the release of Katie’s third album Pictures, which includes the singles If You Were A Sailboat and Mary Pickford.

Tickets for the London date go on pre-sale on Thursday, December 6, 2007.
