English singing sensation Lucy Spraggan has announced a Belfast headline show on March 10th this year at The Limelight 2. The former X Factor star’s career exploded since her 2012 stint on the famous (or possible infamous) talent show, securing a deal with Columbia Records, releasing Top 10 selling debut album Join the Club, and boasting the enviable record of being the most Googled musician of 2012! She also made notable appearances at some of the most prestigious music venues throughout the UK, including the O2 Arena, Royal Albert Hall and Manchester Arena, and performed at some of the UK’s top festivals like T in the Park and V Fest.
Following on from her period of packaged success however, Ms Spraggan opted to take the independent route with her 2015 record We Are being released on her own label, CTRL Records. The album, which just missed out on a top twenty position, was highly acclaimed as one of the best singer-songwriter albums of 2015, showcasing a unique pop-meets-acoustic sound she refers to as ‘AFLOP’.
2016 is set to be another huge year for the 24-year old singer-songwriter which will see her leave her backing band at home to embark on a solo acoustic tour. With a new EP on the horizon, Irish fans will no doubt be greatly excited to see what Lucy does next, starting with her hotly anticipated Belfast gig.
Tickets for Lucy’s March 10th show start at £12 and are currently available from www.limelightbelfast.com, www.ticketmaster.ie Katy’s Bar & Ticketmaster outlets nationwide. For more information on the tour visit http://www.lucyspraggan.com/
