News: Claire Richards to embark on debut solo tour
Claire Richards is set to embark on her first ever solo tour to celebrate the release of her debut album My Wildest Dreams. Claire announced the release of the album last week and dropped first single On My Own. Now she is set to bring My Wildest Dreams to the live stage with four, intimate dates across the UK.
The tour kicks off on 2nd December at Glasgow’s St Lukes then visits Birmingham’s Town Hall on 3rd December, Liverpool’s St George’s Hall Concert Hall on 4th December before wrapping in London at the Union Chapel on 6th December.
Claire is extremely excited to hit the road and commented: “I can’t actually believe I’m going out on my first ever solo tour – making the ‘My Wildest Dreams’ album has been such an incredible experience and every song means something very special to me. I can’t wait to head out on the road and share them with everyone!”
Claire has had a busy August so far. She announced last week that she has signed a record deal with Sony Music and confirmed the release of her debut, solo album My Wildest Dreams on 2nd November. The album is available to pre-order now here, and it stormed straight to the #1 spot on the iTunes Pre-order chart earlier this week. Claire also dropped the first single, On My Own, and the beautiful accompanying video directed by Phil Griffin (Amy Winehouse, Girls Aloud, etc).
My Wildest Dreams is the first time that Claire Richards has branched off alone. As 1/5 of Steps, who stormed the charts last year with their #1 single Scared of the Dark and #2 album Tears On The Dancefloor, Claire has achieved a huge amount of success around the world. While the band take a well-earned break from touring before starting on a new album in 2019, Claire has jumped at the chance to pursue one of her lifelong ambitions and work on an album of her own.
