Singer James Morrison is to kick-off his first UK tour for two years with a date in Norwich. He will appear at the UEA on November 16.

As well as having one of the biggest selling debut albums of 2006, Morrison was also the standalone biggest selling British male solo artist of that year.

Now after a relatively quiet two years, he is preparing to return with a new single, You Make It Real, on September 22 followed his second album, Songs For You, Truths For Me, the following week.

The 21-year-old singer-songwriter, who hails from Derby, saw his debut Undiscovered go straight in at number one in the UK album chart in July 2006 and went on to sell over two million copies worldwide.

His short seven date tour begins in Norwich before moving on to Oxford, Southampton and Edinburgh before concluding in London on November 25.

Tickets for the Norwich go on sale on Friday, September 12, from 9am.

The gig is just the latest big name to be confirmed to at the UEA this autumn in what is shaping up to be one of the most memorable in years.

After spending much of the summer at number one in the singles chart with Dance Wiv Me, his collaboration with Calvin Harris, hip hop star Dizzee Rascal saw tickets sell out within a matter of hours for his UEA show on November 17.

Also sold out are gigs by The Ting Tings, Foals, Travis, The Fratellis, The View and The Script.

Another selling strongly is an appearance at the UEA on December 8 by Britpop survivors Ocean Colour Scene, who are taking a break from recording their new album, due out next year.
