KATHERINE JENKINS Announces 2012 UK 'Daydream' Tour

Katherine Jenkins 
Announces 2012 UK Daydream Tour

Tickets on general sale Friday 2nd September 9.30am


Katherine Jenkins, the record-breaking multi platinum selling mezzo-soprano, today announces her UK Daydream theatre tour, starting 7th January 2012 in Oxford. Taking in 21 cities across the UK, Katherine will be performing up close and personal for her first theatre tour in three years.

Coinciding with the release of her latest album, Daydream, released October 10th on Warner Bros Records, the album is her most personal to date drawing together music and songs she loves from across classical, traditional, folk and easy pop that have inspired her over the course of her life.

Tickets for the extensive tour go on sale Friday 2nd September.

Recorded in Los Angeles and London in spring this year, Katherine has once again teamed up with John Shanks in the U.S (credits include Take That & Westlife and Katherine’s hit 2010 single Tell Me I’m Not Dreaming), and Simon Franglen in London (credits include Barbra Streisand, Céline Dion and the Oscar nominated soundtrack to James Cameron’s Avatar).

Capturing what audiences love about Katherine – her astonishing vocal range, her championing of great songs, always willing to test new ground – Daydream reflects on the exciting stage that she now has reached in her life and career.

Stand out tracks on the album include the stunning Shanks produced Break It To My Heart, a deeply moving interpretation of the Celtic classic Black Is The Colour, I Dreamed A Dream from Les Misérables rarely performed in French, a brand new composition of Ave Maria and Katherine’s stirring tribute to service men and women through the ages A Flower Tells A Story.

The Daydream tour will also see Katherine perform some of her best-known songs that she has performed and recorded over her last seven albums including tracks from her debut album Premiere through to her best selling album Believe.

Katherine says “I had an amazing time on my first arena tour but Daydream is a very intimate album and I wanted my tour to reflect that.  It's a chance for my fans to see me up close and personal in some of the UK's most beautiful theatres”.

As one of the UK’s best-loved artists, with album sales in excess of 5 million copies, her new album, Daydream, reflects her success here and abroad (her last album Believe went platinum in many countries) and signals the start of the next stage of her life.
