Alicia Keys brings Girl On Fire tour to the UK in May

With her latest album Girl On Fire fresh out of the kitchen, 14-time Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, and producer Alicia Keys will return to British shores in May to bring the LP to live on a nationwide arena tour.

“I’m so excited to be touring again and it’s great to be back in the UK!!! I Love it here and I’m looking forward to performing and feeling the energy of the crowd—there’s nothing like it,” says Alicia, with live headlining dates booked in Liverpool, Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham, Nottingham and London. “I plan to bring you something Emotional and exciting! I’m a brand new me!”

Star-studded guests and collaborators on the New York native’s new, fifth album include Nicki Minaj, Maxwell, John Legend, Bruno Mars, Emeli Sande, Frank Ocean, Salaam Remi and Jamie xx, following her multi-platinum release in 2009, The Element of Freedom.
