All Saints announce ten-date UK tour

The girl band's return continues with a jaunt in October

The All Saints comeback will continue with a ten-date October tour of the UK in October, with the new live dates added to a previously announced London show next month.

The four-piece announced their first headline show in ten years – at London’s Koko on April 4 – a few weeks ago, but the new tour will see them play bigger venues around the country in support of recent Liam Gallagher break-up single ‘One Strike’, and new album, ‘Red Flag’. ‘Red Flag is due next month.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be heading out on the road to perform across the UK this October,” All Saints said. “Playing live is our favourite thing to do as a band and we can’t wait to perform all our hits plus some new tracks from ‘Red Flag’.


“It’s incredible to think our last proper tour was over 15 years ago. So we’ve been waiting for this moment for a very long time. From the feedback we’ve read online it seems like a lot of our fans have been anxiously waiting too. We can’t wait to get out there and see everyone.”

Speaking about new single ‘One Strike’ previously, singer Shaznay Lewis revealed that Nicole Appleton’s split with Gallagher was “on my mind” when she wrote the song.

“The lyrics came from somewhere very real. Nic was going through a lot of things at that time. That was at the forefront of my mind because it was the heaviest thing going on,” she said.

“We spoke for hours and hours on the phone,” Nicole added. “The first few times I heard it in my car I couldn’t stop crying because I could hear so clearly what it was about,” said Appleton.
