SONGSTRESS Rita Ora took the music scene by storm last year, and she has set her sights on an even bigger 2013.

She has announced a UK tour following her number one singles R.I.P and How We Do (Party), which made her the only artist this year to have three no.1 singles in a row.

The release of her debut album ORA rounded off her incredible run, also claiming the no.1 spot last summer.

Live, Rita set the bar even higher during her US tour earlier this year and with a stunning performance opening the 2012 MTV EMAs, she gave fans a taster of what to expect in the UK for her Radioactive Tour.

No stranger to the stage having supported some of the biggest names in music, the spring saw her supporting US superstar Drake and stadium giants Coldplay on tour as well as playing at every major UK music festival and event this year including Hackney Weekend, Wireless, Lovebox, T in the Park, Capital’s Summertime Ball, T4 On The Beach and 1Xtra Live.

She also made a special appearance on her home ground at the Notting Hill Carnival and to top it all off she celebrated the release of her album ORA in style with an unforgettable performance at JAY-Z’s Made In America festival.

Stateside, Rita has also been made quite an impression on U.S. audiences, with stellar performances on Good Morning America, Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live.

She presented Best Male Artist award and ruled the red carpet at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards, charmed Ryan Seacrest on his show On Air with Ryan Seacrest and she was the most recent artist to grace the stage of MTV’s Grammy and Emmy award-winning series, Unplugged.

In the UK she wowed audiences with explosive performance of Upfront Club Chart No.1 single Shine Ya Light on The X Factor and Jonathan Ross, guesting with Alan Carr and gracing the pages of British Vogue.

Rita’s new single Radioactive taken from her no.1 hit album ORA will be out on February 10.
