Sade announces European tour dates
Sade has announced plans to embark on her first European tour in 17 years.
The Nigeria-born singer-songwriter, who now lives in the UK, hits the road following the platinum-selling success of her latest chart-topping record, Soldier Of Love, where she will perform songs from her collection of timeless hits, including Smooth Operator, No Ordinary Love and The Sweetest Taboo, as well as her newer tracks.
The UK leg kicks off on May 27 in Manchester's MEN Arena, before heading to Birmingham on May 29 and London on May 31.
The Grammy award-winner - whose real name is Helen Folasade Adu - last toured in 2001, where she performed for more than a million fans across the US, but her last British dates were at London's Royal Albert Hall in May 1993.
Tickets for the tour go on sale October 18 at 9am.
