Kylie Minogue will tour the UK and Ireland later this year as part of her recently-announced tour.

The Australian pop singer will begin at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on 18 September and continue through to October.

She will also perform at venues in Nottingham, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Cardiff, London, Glasgow, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Dublin; concluding in Belfast on 8 October.

Fans hoping to get tickets should keep an eye out on her website on 2 March.

The tour is in support of her upcoming album Golden, which was recorded in Nashville and reportedly has a bit of a "country feel".

In October she revealed the album was partly inspired by her split from her fiance, the actor Joshua Sasse, in February last year. The pair met on the set of US TV show Galavant in 2015, with Minogue announcing their engagement in February 2016.

"There's a little bit of heartbreak, I would say," she told The Sun. "Mostly I try to reflect where I am. Definitely, in the last year, there's been some of that but we bounce back. Most of it is super positive and inspiring, as a note to self as much anything else. I'm feeling great right now."

All of the songs were co-written by her, including the lead single "Dancing" which was released in January. Golden is set for release on 6 April.
