Pixie Lott to tour UK
The 19-year-old singer, whose hits include Mama Do and Girls and Boys, has toured as support act with The Saturdays before.
However, her upcoming round of British gigs will mark the first time she has gone out as the headline act.
The tour kicks off in Glasgow on November 14th 2010, while gigs in cities such as Nottingham, Cardiff, Sheffield and Leeds are also on the itinerary.
Lott is expected play to more than 40,000 people during the tour, which wraps up at Manchester Apollo on December 18th.
"I am happiest when I am on stage performing, so I can't wait to get out on the road with my band and sing every night for all my fans," she commented.
She added that she is planning a very special show which should hopefully leave everyone smiling.
