Whitney Houston is to tour the UK for the first time in over a decade.

The 'I Look to You' singer will play five arena dates starting next April in venues across England and Scotland.

Whitney said: "This is my first full tour since the 'My Love Is Your Love' tour in 1999 and I am so excited to be performing for my fans around the world after all this time.

"I am putting together a great show and cannot wait to perform the songs from my new album 'I Look to You' along with some of your favorites."

The 46-year-old star will also make a TV appearance on talent show 'The X Factor' this Sunday (18.10.09) - her first UK TV appearance in 12 years.

Whitney - who has sold over 140 million albums worldwide - is making her long-awaited musical comeback after overcoming drug addiction.

Whitney's UK tour will start in Manchester on April 8 before moving to Glasgow, Birmingham, Newcastle and London.

The rest of her European dates will also see her perform in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium.
