Lauran Hibberd has announced details of a UK tour opening with a Manchester gig at Manchester Academy 3.

The Manchester gig is one of nine headline dates she has announced.  She will also headline dates in Glasgow, Bristol and London as well as support James Arthur at Middlesbrough’s Riverside Stadium.

News of the UK tour dates follow a hugely successful run in the US alongside All Time Low and the release of her second album Girlfriend Material which landed last month.  Speaking at the time about the album, Lauran Hibberd said, “Welcome to Girlfriend Material, here you will find the 12-stage instruction manual on how to make the perfect girlfriend in under an hour. Listen more than once to ensure perfection,” Hibberd reveals. “Making this record came oddly naturally, it felt like it was supposed to come out of me and I’ve never felt so attached to a body of songs like this. I think I’m at a point in my life where I’ve started to really experience ‘life’, with going through losing a parent, having a life altering break up, living on my own for the first time, and exploring who the ‘f*vk’ I actually am. Everything I am right now is in this album. It’s the best thing I’ve ever made, and I’ve worked with some incredible people in the process. It’s definitely been the one thing that’s kept me going over the last year, and I hope it can do the same for other people. with love, Lauran Hibberd (100% girlfriend material).”
