SHE recently made chart history after becoming the most successful UK female artist of all time in the official singles chart. Now fans of Rita Ora will be able to see her perform live when she brings her 2019 UK tour to the BIC in May.

Following the success of her latest single Let You Love Me and her album Phoenix last November, Rita says she can’t wait to be back on the road.

“I’m so happy to be on tour again! Nothing makes me happier than performing and travelling to see all my fans. It will be first time performing news songs from Phoenix and I can’t wait for you to hear them! I’m looking forward to this tour so much.”

Rita entered the Official Chart history books, breaking a record held for 30 years.

Let You Love Me, became her 13th top ten on the Official Singles Chart setting a new record previously held by music icons Shirley Bassey and Petula Clark, who each lay claim to a dozen top ten hits.

Rita says of her new album Phoenix: “One of the most liberating feelings for me is performing and creating music. This album is a true labour of love, and it was important for me to do it my way. I’m so appreciative of the love and support from those who worked with me on the record and allowed me create something I’m really proud of.

“They gave me the space and freedom to create something from my heart. Both challenging and euphoric at times.

“I am really proud of and grateful for the journey that the making of Phoenix has taken me on. To my fans, thank you for your patience and thank you always for listening.”
