A star of Blackpool’s 2014 Illuminations Switch-On Festival is set to return to the resort as part of a UK tour.
Rebecca Ferguson, a runner up on The X Factor in 2010, will be playing at the Opera House in early 2016.
The soul singer, whose voice has been compared to Aretha Franklin and Dusty Springfield, has announced the 20-date UK tour, in January and February next year.
She will play at the Opera House on February 4 as part of her Lady Sings The Blues tour.
The tour shares the name of her recently released album, which features covers of Billie Holiday’s classics, released in the 100th year after Billie’s birth, which charted in the top ten of the UK album chart on Sunday.
The tour also takes in cities including Manchester, Birmingham and Ms Ferguson’s hometown of Liverpool.
Tickets will go on sale at 9am this Friday. Visit: www.ticketmaster.co.uk
