British singer Rita Ora has announced that she will be making a major trip Down Under in 2019.

According to Music Feeds, Ora will be making the rounds Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Perth in early March next year, as part of her promotions for her new album Phoenix, with is being released on November 23. The 27-year-old will start in Melbourne on March 1 at the Palais Theatre, move on to Sydney on March 2 at Big Top @ Luna Park, take a short break before appearing in Brisbane at the Eatons Hill Hotel on March 5, and then finishing up at Metro City in Perth on March 7. While the first three shows have been classified as “all ages,” her Perth show is marked as “18+.”

Ora will bring along with her hits from Phoenix, including the likes of ‘Let You Love Me’, ‘Girls’, ‘Anywhere’ and ‘Your Song’, as well as some of her older popular hits like ‘R.I.P’, ‘For You’ and ‘Doing It’.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 am AEDT on Friday, November 2. Ora last visited Australia in 2013 on a quick stopover as part of her Radioactive tour.

Ora will also be performing in Manila in the Philippines for the first time ever in March 2019, according to ABS CBN News.
