Statement Melanie C:
"Due to the current Covid situation in Europe, it is with great regret that I must announce the cancellation of the European dates of my upcoming tour. I’m devastated to let so many of you down."

The new album Melanie C (release: October 2) was launched in spectacular style recently with latest single ‘In And Out Of Love’. The album also includes empowering recent single 'Blame It On Me' – which went top 20 on UK airplay - and the album's defiantly reflective first single, 'Who I Am' (which also went number 1 on iTunes worldwide). Having appeared on the likes of The Late Late Show With James Corden to BBC 1's The One Show, Melanie has brought fans around the world together under Covid !
Channelling a life-long love of disco, electronic music and anthemic pop, Melanie C’s new album is a journey of introspection, growth and acceptance. It’s a point reflected in her choice of collaborators on the project, which range from Nadia Rose and Shura to remixes from the likes of Joe Goddard (as well as reuniting with longtime collaborator Richard "Biff" Stanndard").
An artist who’s at home presenting her friend Billie Eilish with a BRIT Award as she is lending her vital voice to the modern discourse on depression, body positivity, and the LGBTQ community, Melanie C's trailblazing influence has never been more apparent. With over 100 million records sold and multiple BRIT, Ivor, Billboard and Olivier Awards under her belt, this nonetheless feels like new, more assured ground for Melanie C - and a glorious new chapter for Girl Power.
“Her best work since she went it alone 20 years ago…recalls classic Robyn and the carefree joy of Carly Rae Jepsen” – The Guardian
