MULTI award-winning recording artist Katie Melua has announced an extensive European tour for winter 2018, including 13 UK dates.

Katie will be joined by a cast of stellar musicians, as well as members of Gori Women’s Choir who featured on the silver-certified 2016 album In Winter.

In Winter was recorded in Georgia, and commanded some of the finest reviews of her career. The associated 2016 tour, which saw Katie and the choir undertake 28 performances across eight countries, received universal acclaim from music critics and audiences alike.

Next winter will see another expansive set of live performances, which will include songs from In Winter alongside new recordings and catalogue classics adapted for the stage.

The announcement follows the release of the 2xCD Special Edition of In Winter, which includes the BBC Children in Need 2017 single Fields Of Gold.
