Paloma Faith has announced an arena tour, including a date at the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle next year.

The inimitable singer will play the venue on March 14, 2015, and will doubtless still be basking in the success of her platinum-selling album, A Perfect Contradiction.

A special edition of the long player, featuring five new tracks - including new single Ready for the Good Life - will be released on November 3.

The new record will also feature a recording of Paloma’s recent headline performance at the BBC Proms.

The news of the arena dates will be welcomed by her army of fans, given the fact that her current set of UK gigs are sold out.

Tickets costing £28.50 and £38.50 will go on sale at 9am on September 19 and will be available online at www.metroradioarena.co.uk , from the booking hotline number 0844 493 6666 or in person from the Arena box office.
