Corinne Bailey Rae Live Tour
After the critically acclaimed release of her new album The Heart Speaks in Whispers, Corinne Bailey Rae has confirmed the dates for her first UK tour in five years; opening the tour in her hometown at Leeds Town Hall on Friday 28 October.
Both fans and critics have heaped superlatives on her spellbinding performances throughout the summer, including this year’s Glastonbury Festival, a sensational support set for Stevie Wonder at British Summer Time, Hyde Park as part of his Songs in the Key of Life extravaganza, a huge UK arena tour with Lionel Ritchie and further shows at this year’s V Festival, Cornbury Festival and across the USA.
The Evening Standard has called her “[the] bewitching queen of British soul [who] oozes charisma…” upon seeing her in concert whilst the Daily Star claims she is simply “mesmerizing” live.
Corinne’s third studio album The Heart Speaks in Whispers, her first collection of new material for six years, also received rave reviews across the board upon its release in May. With MOJO hailing her resurgence as “a brilliant and very welcome return” and Q Magazine declaring Corinne is “getting it right again [with] sultriness and life-affirmation”, she has wowed both critics and fans alike.
