Jessie J releases tour dates for 2013 after hitting number one in 19 countries and selling 11 million singles worldwide

Bisexual pop star Jessie J announces UK arena tour
22 May 2012

Bisexual pop superstar Jessie J has announced dates for a British and Irish arena tour early next year.

The singer, who is currently a ‘coach’ in British TV talent show The Voice, is one of the hottest pop stars in the world. She has hit the number one spot in 19 countries worldwide and sold 11 million singles and over 2.5 million copies of her multi-platinum debut album Who You Are.

She is particularly popular in her home country of Britain where she has sold a million albums and managed two number one singles with Price Tag and Domino.

Her first 14-date UK arena tour early next year will follow a string of festival appearances this summer including Wireless, Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend, Isle of White, Ibiza and Mallorca Live, T in the Park and Capital FM’s Summertime Ball.

J’s latest single Laserlight featuring David Guetta smashed into the top 10 six weeks ahead of release making it her sixth top 10 UK single.

That means she has made UK chart history with the most top 10 hits off one album. She is the first solo artist to have achieved this, with only Take That’s 2010 album ‘Progress’ and Lady Gaga’s debut album Fame equaling it in the UK.

Jessie J is set to take to the stage at Buckingham Palace for Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee celebrations alongside openly gay music legend Sir Elton John.

Her 2013 tour will start on 26 February in Nottingham. It will then go to Brighton, Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool, Cardiff, Bournemouth, London, Newcastle, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Belfast before finishing in Dublin on 18 March.

Jessie J tickets are available now here.
