The biggest selling classical artist of the century, Katherine Jenkins sets off on her highly anticipated headline tour this autumn, stopping in Southampton in November.

Bringing back the magic of live music to venues across the UK, Katherine will be performing songs from her latest album and favourites from throughout her incredible career.

Katherine told the Daily Echo: “I spent the vast majority of the pandemic doing weekly live performances from my home on social media to support the NHS and to show love for my fans and everyone going through such a difficult time. I also did it for myself and for my own wellbeing because nothing feels better than performing live. That same spirit is what I promise to bring to this forthcoming tour, my first in more than two years. After what we’ve all been through we have earned and deserve a night of joy.”

Confirming her position as the biggest selling classical artist this century, Katherine broke her own Classical Chart record when her latest album, Cinema Paradiso topped the Classical Albums Chart.

Cinema Paradiso is Katherine’s 14th Number 1 Classical album, making her the UK's most successful classical artist in chart history. The latest album also became her highest charting album in over a decade, outselling the rest of the Classical Top 50 combined.

Katherine Jenkins is cherished as one of Britain’s all-time favourite singers and is one of the world’s most prolific artists in UK Classical chart history. She was also crowned as the No.1 selling Classical Music Artist of the Last 25 Years by Classic FM.

As one of the UK’s greatest musical exports, multi-award winning Katherine has performed all over the world, for the Pope, for Presidents and is a favourite of the Royal Family, having been invited to sing God Save The Queen at Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee, perform at Her Majesty's Coronation Concerts at Buckingham Palace and by special request at Her Majesty's 90th birthday celebrations at Windsor Castle.
