Patti Russo may have performed alongside some of the biggest names in the industry - including Queen, Cher and Roger Daltrey - but never before has she toured the UK as a solo artist.
That's now all to change, as she announces her debut solo UK tour to take place this April.
With her best-known work being the powerhouse female vocalist alongside Meat Loaf, she's played an integral role in both his recording career and touring over nearly two decades, cementing a reputation as the foil to his theatrical stage persona.
She's starred in numerous theatre pieces and even played the lead role of Esmeralda in the London West End production of 'Notre Dame De Paris', as well as the Killer Queen from 'We Will Rock You', after she was personally asked by Roger Taylor and Brian May of Queen to star.
"I've done this all on my own, without representation" she says of her career - "it's been pretty amazing, to say the least, but I've never taken that giant leap to start my own solo career and for me it's like an itch that needs to be scratched!"
