Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Norwegian singer-songwriter AURORA announced details of a brand new headline tour.
The newly announced dates will see the musician take to the stage in Bristol, Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle, Birmingham and London throughout November 2019.
The tour will be in support of AURORA’s forthcoming third studio album A Different Kind of Human (Step 2), due for release on 7 June 2019.
A Different Kind of Human (Step 2) is the follow-up and the second chapter to AURORA’s September 2018 release Infections of a Different Kind (Step 1).
AURORA has released two singles from the upcoming record so far, Animal and The Seed. Watch the official video for The Seed below:
AURORA first broke through in the UK in 2015, when her track Runaway received widespread acclaim from tastemakers, racking up over 1 million streams in less than six weeks.
The musician’s career was then given a further boost when her cover of the classic Oasis track Half The World Away was chosen to soundtrack the 2015 John Lewis Christmas advert.
The artist followed the release with her successful debut album All My Demons Greeting Me as a Friend in 2016, which contains the fan favourite singles Running with the Wolves, Murder Song (5, 4, 3, 2, 1) and her breakthrough hit Runaway.
Known for her powerful and emotive live shows, the musician has completed numerous world tours and performed at festivals such as Wilderness, Bestival, Latitude and Glastonbury.
AURORA will be returning to the UK later this year, in support of her new album A Different Kind of Human (Step 2).
