HOT off the heels of her first ever concert performance at London’s Hackney Empire, Leona Lewis has announced a 10-date UK Arena tour next summer.

The dates begin in Sheffield in May and include two nights at London’s O2 Arena in June.

Speaking about touring, Leona said: “I can’t wait to get out on tour and see everyone, I’m really looking forward to putting on a great show. I had such a fun night at my recent show at the Hackney Empire and it’s given me a real taste for it.

“Over the last few years I’ve had some amazing experiences and sung in some really interesting places but it’s going to be great to be able to perform all my own material on my very own tour. It’s a dream come true.”

Fans can expect stunning state-of-the-art staging and visual effects as well as choreography and an incredible live band.

Leona will play songs from her smash hit debut album Spirit (including Bleeding Love, Better In Time and Run) as well as tracks from her forthcoming new studio album Echo, including the new single Happy.

The tour dates are (all May and June 2010):

28 – Sheffield Arena
31 – Liverpool Echo Arena

2 – Nottingham Trent FM Arena
4 – Manchester MEN Arena
8 – Birmingham LG Arena
12 & 14 – London O2 Arena
20 – Glasgow SECC
24 – Newcastle Metro Radio Arena
27 – Dublin, The O2 Arena

Tickets go on sale on November 27 at 9.30am.
