Lockdown queen Sophie Ellis Bextor has confirmed plans for a full kitchen disco tour and a studio album.
The singer's IG Live broadcasts were a highlight of lockdown, with her fun-filled renditions of pop classics becoming a social media phenomenon.
A full album - titled 'Songs From The Kitchen Disco' - follows on October 23rd, with Sophie Ellis Bextor set to tour the UK in 2021.
"During lockdown, our family kitchen discos became a precious time where we could all bop about and be a bit silly. It made me feel connected to everyone who joined us and I can honestly say the music was a real tonic which brought sparkly joy to my soul every Friday."
"The discos we shared have inspired me and now I want to see all your faces so I can sing for you. I want to give everyone a night where just for a little while, we can all lose ourselves under the mirror ball and dance and have fun. Won’t that feel magical?! I CANNOT WAIT!"
Sophie Ellis Bextor's tour kicks off in Glasgow on May 7th, and includes a night at the London Palladium.
Pre-sale opens at mid-day on July 16th, with general sale opening at 10am on July 17th.
