Twelve-time Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys will tour the UK in May 2010 as part of what will likely become a full European tour. Tickets for the first round of shows go on sale November 30.

The tour will follow the release of Keys's new album, The Element of Freedom, which is due out internationally December 15. The album features the singles "Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart" and "Doesn't Mean Anything," as well as a solo version of "Empire State of Mind," which Keys previously sang with Jay-Z, and "Put It In A Love Song," a duet with Beyoncé. Also collaborating on the album is the rapper Drake, for the track "Un-thinkable (I'm Ready)."

Keys's 2010 tour will mark her first UK shows since her 2007 As I Am tour.
