Singer-songwriter Lucy Spraggan will visit the Liquid Room in Edinburgh later this year as part of a 32-date UK and Ireland tour.
The former X Factor star is enjoying a hugely successful year, having released fifth studio album Today Was A Good Day, played Glastonbury and SXSW, toured Europe and Scandinavia with Melissa Etheridge, and completed her own US and UK headline tours.
Now she continues that momentum by announcing a tour which kicks off in Gateshead on October 8th.
Spraggan started out as a singer-songwriter performing at open-mic nights around the country. At just 19-years-old she took the brave decision to perform her self-penned hit Last Night (Beer Fear) on the X Factor and secured a Top 20 single and Top 30 self-released album while still competing in the show. That journey resulted in her becoming the most Googled musician of 2012.
Through relentless touring, her innate songwriting ability and an ever-growing fanbase, she has now achieved an impressive five consecutive Top 30 albums.
Tickets for her tour go on sale on Friday, 12 July at 9am. You can check out the dates below.
