Mabel announces massive UK tour

The singer will tour the UK and Ireland this winter

Singer Mabel has today announced a full UK and Ireland tour this winter.

Beginning in Dublin in November, the hotly-tipped star will play dates across the UK before returning for a homecoming gig at London’s Brixton Academy on December 12.

Performing earlier this year with Not3 for ‘Fine Line’, the singer first emerged in 2015 with her debut ‘Know Me Better’.

Just two years later, her song ‘Finders Keepers’ broke into the Top Ten Singles Chart and she supported Harry Styles earlier this year.

Speaking about the gigs to NME, the singer said she wanted to headline venues like this herself one day.

“I want to be playing those places one day. I’m figuring out how to gas 20,000 people when they’re not there for you…It makes me think, ‘One day when they are here for you, it’ll be a hell of a lot easier!’”

Mabel has an esteemed musical heritage; the daughter of singer Neneh Cherry and Massive Attack and Portishead producer Cameron McVey. Her godfather is R.E.M’s Michael Stipe.

Speaking to the NME about her family, the rising RnB star said she was keen to carve out her own musical path: “I’m not embarrassed to say I’m their daughter. I’m proud of the things I’ve accomplished.”

She added: “I feel like people always assume things, but that’s just life. I work hard and I’m very separate from what my parents do.

Earlier this year, Mabel was nominated for a BRITs Critics Choice award alongside Jorja Smith and Stefflon Don.
