Rita Ora Announces U.S. Tour Dates
At last, we won't have to cross the pond or sneak into a private party or sold out festival to see Rita Ora perform live! The 'Shine Ya Light' songstress is headlining a brief tour stateside next month with some other hot blondes supporting her.
Ora will hit the road with rapper Iggy Azalea and budding dance floor princess Havana Brown. The brief jaunt kicks off Oct. 23 in Santa Ana, Calif. and concludes in New York City on Oct. 30. It will be Ora's first headlining tour, however short, in the states, and will be a good indicator of her ability to fill venues without supporting a bigger name. The songstress toured with Coldplay in Europe and made her rounds on festival circuits with her Roc Nation cohorts, including Jay-Z.
The Kosovo-born, U.K. raised singer's tour will gear her up for the U.S. release of her debut album, 'Ora.' The album, which features hits 'How We Do (Party),' 'R.I.P.' and more, already hit No. 1 in the U.K. but has yet to cement a release date stateside.
Since Ora's dates are so limited, fans may have to make quite the trek to see the singer -- but from what we've observed from her performances, it will be more than worth it. Her live vocals are her strongest selling point -- the woman can sing her butt off! Here's where you can catch her on tour -- and here's where you can snag tickets!
