Rita Ora announces 2019 world tour in support of 'Phoenix' album

Rita Ora has announced a world tour for 2019.

The British singer-songwriter is set to tour the world to promote her upcoming new album Phoenix, which will be released next month on November 23.

Ora said: "I'm so happy to be on tour again! Nothing makes me happier than performing and travelling to see all my fans.

"It will be first time performing news songs from 'Phoenix' and I can't wait for you to hear them! I'm looking forward to this tour so much."

The tour is set to kick off in Melbourne, Australia, at the Falais Theatre on March 1. The 24-date tour will include Tokyo, Japan and Sweden, before culminating with seven shows in her home country of the UK.

The UK leg of the tour starts on May 21 in Cardiff, and will see Rita play to fans in Bournemouth, London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Leeds and Glasgow.

Phoenix is Rita's second release - following her debut self-titled record in 2012 - and she is excited to let her fans hear the new tunes.

She added: "One of the most liberating feelings for me is performing and creating music. This album is a true labour of love, and it was important for me to do it my way.

"I'm so appreciative of the love and support from those who worked with me on the record and allowed me create something I'm really proud of. They gave me the space and freedom to create something from my heart. Both challenging and euphoric at times.

"I am really proud of and grateful for the journey that the making of Phoenix has taken me on. To my fans, thank you for your patience and thank you always for listening."
