The show, entitled Stripped Back, will see Paige play some of her favourite tracks from an array of contemporary songwriters, with a small group of musicians.

This follows her last solo tour in 2014 which was a sell-out celebratory concert encompassing her incredible 50 year career and saw her say ‘farewell’ to a full touring schedule.

She said: “I’m so excited about this series of ‘weekend’ concerts. Having made the decision not to do a back to back tour again, this appealed to me not only because of the schedule, but as I’ve marked my 50 years on stage, this is going to allow me to do something completely different, a brand new show celebrating the contemporary songwriters I love such as Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Jim Webb and Burt Bacharach.”
