The singer, who will be joined by her brother conductor and orchestrator Gerard Salonga, as musical director, said: “I owe a lot to the public and the British fans for my success, after they took me to heart as Kim in Miss Saigon – which I’ll always be so grateful for.

“My very first UK tour was in 2019 and it was a really wonderful experience. I’m now even more excited to come back in 2022 – after so long unable to travel or play – especially with Gerard joining me in as musical director.

“Coming back to the stage and on the international tour will be an absolute pleasure and I’m so excited to be returning to the UK, meeting fans again and performing some of my favorite songs of all time. ”
