Story by Jack Foley

HOT on the heels of the release of her critically acclaimed debut album, Catching A Tiger, Lissie has announced details of her first full headline tour this autumn.

Having recently completed a series of dates as special guest to Joshua Radin, City & Colour and Local Natives and a headline tour of the UK with Alan Pownall, Lissie now has a full program of touring continuing throughout the summer, which also includes a sold out show at London’s ICA on July 28.

Online, she has picked up well over a million plays on YouTube as fans have discovered her charms, alongside some spectacular cover versions, that began with her take on Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters for the Dermot session and has since taken in Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance and Kid Cudi’s Pursuit Of Happiness.

Lissie’s October and November headline dates are as follows:

26 – Glasgow Oran Mor
27 – Manchester Academy 3
28 – Bristol Thekla
30 – Norwich Waterfront
31 – Birmingham Academy 2

1 – London Heaven

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, July 9, 2010, priced at £10 regionally and £12 for London (subject to booking fee).

Catching A Tiger is out now. Her next single, Cuckoo, is released on August 30 on Columbia Records.
