U.K. pop/R&B singer Alexandra Burke will embark on her first U.K. tour at the beginning of 2011.

The 2008 "X Factor" winner has announced the 18 dates for her "All Night Long" tour, promoted by AEG Live. The opening show will be at Glasgow Clyde Auditorium on Jan. 20 with later dates scheduled in Manchester, Brighton and Cardiff.

In London, Burke will play the HMV Hammersmith Apollo on Feb. 10. The venue's capacity ranges from 3,600 for all-seated events to 5,000 for standing events.

Burke's debut album "Overcome" started at No. 1 in the Official Charts Co's U.K. albums listing in October 2009. It has since sold more than 600,000 copies in the U.K., according to a statement.
