90s icon Gabrielle announces AO Arena Manchester gig on biggest-ever tour

Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 5th February 2024

Gabrielle has announced details of her largest tour to date, including a night here in Manchester.

The pop star, who was one of the leading voices of the 1990s and 2000s, has announced an AO Arena show for next year.

Gabrielle’s tour announcement follows last year’s 30 Years of Dreaming tour last year, where she sold out all 32 shows.

Now the Out Of Reach singer will be going even bigger and performing at some of the biggest arenas in the UK, including The O2 in London and the AO Arena in Manchester.

She’ll be joined by Tunde of Lighthouse Family for all of her dates.


Gabrielle recently released a new single, A Place In Your Heart, a rock n soul anthem which became Radio 2’s Record of the Week on its release.

The song will also be the title track of her upcoming new album, set for release on 10 May.


The album has been co-written by Ian Barter (who has also worked with Amy Winehouse and Palona Faith), and features a collaboration with BRIT-Award nominee Mahalia.

Gabrielle’s biggest hits over the years have included Dreams, Rise, and Out of Reach.

She said: “I had such a great time on the ’30 Years of Dreaming’ tour that I can’t wait to do it all again on some even bigger stages including The O2.


“With some new songs mixed with the old favourites, I’m also very excited to have Tunde of Lighthouse Family joining me on the road. It’s going to be amazing, hope to see you there!”

Fans who pre-order the new album will have access to an exclusive pre-sale, before general sale tickets go on sale from 9am on Friday 9 February.
