Pretty big news in the world of Anna Calvi today with the announcement that Anna is set to headline the NME Radar tour this May in the UK. Kicking off in Portsmouth on 1st May the tour will end with Anna’s biggest headline show to date at London’s Koko on 17th May. This should come as some pretty good news for fans of Anna who unfortunately had to postpone her live dates in March, meaning this will be her first full UK tour since the release of her critically acclaimed eponymous debut in January. (Tickets for the postponed tour can be used for these shows.)

Tickets for the NME Radar Tour go on sale through on Wednesday 9th March, and will be on general sale from 11th March. Tickets are priced between £9-11. Full dates are as follows:

1 May: Portsmouth, Wedgwood Rooms
2 May: Bristol, Thekla
3 May: Nottingham, Rescue Rooms
5 May: York Fibbers
6 May: Hull Uni
7 May: Manchester, Academy3
9 May: Glasgow, King Tuts
10 May: Liverpool, O2 Academy2
11 May: Birmingham, O2 Academy2
14 May: Cambridge, Junction
15 May: Norwich, Waterfront
16 May: Oxford, O2 Academy2
17 May: London, Koko

Anna Calvi is also headlining two nights at London’s Bush Hall on April 26th and 27th; both shows are now sold out. Anna has also been invited to play as support to Arctic Monkeys in Sheffield at the Don Valley Bowl on Saturday 11th June and has been confirmed to play this year’s Glastonbury.

Blackout, the first single taken from Anna Calvi's album is released on March 21st.
