Rita Ora 2018 UK tour support act announced as Raye

Rita Ora's first tour in five years kicks off this May.

Rita Ora has confirmed the artist supporting her on her first UK tour in over five years.

The singer has announced that rising British singer-songwriter Raye will be hitting the road with her, and posting on Twitter, Rita is clearly very happy to have her.

"So excited to announce the lovely @raye is supporting me on my SOLD OUT tour in May!!#lilsis #girlsdoitbedda #pussypower"

It's not the first time Rita and Raye have teamed up, combining their talents on the official remix to Charli XCX's After The Afterparty. Could they work together on another track in the near future? We wouldn't rule it out. 

Rita recently made Official Chart history by joining Shirley Bassey and Petula Clark as the British females with the most Top 10 singles, with 12. Rita has scored an impressive four Top 10 singles in the past nine months; look back at her Official Chart success here.

Rita's tour begins on May 11 in Glasgow, rounding out in Bristol on May 19 after seven shows. The full tour schedule can be found below. Rita will also take to the stage at various festivals this summer including Isle of Wight and V Festival's replacement Rize.
