ALESHA Dixon is to play Ipswich's Regent theatre, it has today been announced.

The singer will be bringing her tour to the town on Monday November 9.

Theatre manager David Mansfield said: “With smash hit after smash hit and gold selling album fast approaching platinum, Alesha Dixon has announced her own fabulous headline tour.

“Alesha first hit the charts with girl band Mis-Teeq, but people of a certain age will probably remember her better as the vivacious winner of Strictly Come Dancing a couple of years ago.

“Her solo career has brought her a series of Top 10 hits and her first UK tour is certain to be bursting with energy. Tickets are expected to sell very quickly.

“This should be a fantastic night and we are delighted to welcome her to the Regent. This is a great coup for the venue and a brilliant addition to our autumn programme.”
