She’s back and she means business.

Una Healy has announced two headline shows for 2017.

The first at London’s St Pancras Old Church on February 15 and the second at Dublin’s The Sugar Club on February 16.

The intimate, headline dates will coincide with her debut solo album release, The Waiting Game, that hits stores on February 10.

Speaking about the dates Una said, “I am so excited to take my brand new album The Waiting Game live to the stage for my very own headline shows in Dublin and London. I can't wait to hit the road with my live band”.

The Tipperary native has worked with some of the world’s most acclaimed songwriters and producers, including Grammy winner Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran's 'Thinking Out Loud'), Ben Earle from The Shires, Nick Atkinson (Gabrielle Aplin), singer songwriter Jack McManus and Sacha Skarbek (Lana Del Ray, Jason Mraz).

Here’s a little taste of what’s to come:

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Thursday from all usual Ticketmaster outlets.
