 The Princess of Pop, Louise, is back for a nationwide tour! When it comes to female pop icons Louise has secured herself a place in the history books along side the likes of Kylie and Madonna.

 Despite being dropped by her record label after low sales for her 2000 comeback album, Elbow Beach, pop icon Louise has now revealed the dates of a 36 date tour and news that she is currently negotiating a new contract with a different record company.

 Since leaving Eternal - the first British girl group of the 90's - in 1996, teen favourite Louise has enjoyed seven Top 10 hits and sold over 2 million albums and 2 million singles, but also seen her share of failures. Launched in a storm of raunchy photo sessions and rubber stage costumes, critics loved her 1996 debut solo album, Naked - an artful, straight-down-the-line, teenage pop feast - but slashed the more mature (though less popular) Brit-nominated Woman In Me, all despite being given the title Sexiest Woman Alive by FHM magazine in 1997.

 But as she bids farewell to EMI, who signed her as a 15 year old school girl, Louise has put together a collection of her biggest songs with a selection of new tracks, tipping a nod to the past and showcasing a hint of what's still to come.

 In the words of the artist herself "You haven't heard the last of me yet because there is still so much I want to do!"
