Alicia Keys will debut songs from ‘Girl On Fire’ at MTV Crashes Manchester this month.
The ‘Fallin’ singer will make a special appearance at Manchester Cathedral on September 24, and fans will see the first UK performances of songs from her latest record.
Alicia, 31, will be releasing her fifth studio album in November, and is excited at the opportunity to give these songs an airing at the one-off UK show.
She said: ‘’All of the love and work I’ve poured into ‘Girl On Fire’ has been for moments like this – when I’m able to travel the world and share the experience of performing my favourite songs with my family across the globe.’’
Alicia performed the track ‘Girl on Fire’ at the MTV Video Music Awards last week (06.09.12) – fans’ first taste of her new material – where she was joined on stage by Nicki Minaj and Olympic medallist Gabby Douglas.
Looking ahead to the Manchester Cathedral show, Alicia is thrilled to be part of the MTV World Stage series.
She revealed: ’’I’m so excited to be a part of MTV Crashes Manchester and to celebrate music in such an inspiring and historic setting.’’
Fans can enter to win tickets for the show at MTV.co.uk before September 21.
