RISING UK solo star Taio Cruz, whose massive chart smashes Come On Girl and I Can Be, has announced plans for his first UK tour this August.

The artist will play a total of seven dates, including the V Festival and Mela at Gunnersbury Park.

The dates are (all August 2008)…

10 – London, Mela at Gunnersbury Park
12 – Sheffield Academy 2
13 – Glasgow ABC 2
15 – Birmingham Academy 2
16 – Stafford V Festival
17 – Chelmsford V Festival
19 – Manchester Academy 3

Taio Cruz will release his new single She’s Like A Star on August 11, digital and August 18, physical. The single is taken from Departure, which Simon Cowell recently called “one of the best albums of the year”.

In fact Cowell was so impressed with Taio’s writing/productions skills that he has enlisted Taio to work with two of his biggest stars, Leona Lewis and Shayne Ward.

Cruz is also currently in Philadelphia working with superhot US producer Jim Beanz, on new music for Britney, Brandy and Justin Timberlake. And he has also been asked to write for Anastasia’s eagerly anticipated new album and to contribute to the Sugababes’ next album.
