Jessie Ware has announced what she’s calling her ‘Tough Love’ tour. It’s named after the single she releasing next month though. Hopefully she won’t be using the shows to dish out home truths to her audience. Actually, I don’t know, maybe that would be fun.

Anyway, she’s releasing this single, and then she’ll be playing a couple of UK shows in early October, both of with are quite ‘churchy’. Very churchy, in fact. Or entirely churchy. The first one, on 2 Oct in London, will take place at St John at Hackney church in Shoreditch, which is a big church. Then the next night she’ll play Manchester Cathedral, which is also a big church. So, if she does plan to start preaching to her flock, she’s picked the right venues.

Tickets for the shows will be available by ballot, because you know how much Jesus loves fairness. So, if you want to go, you’ll need to register at and then start praying.
