The X Factor tour is set to take in the entire country, with sixteen dates announced - including Manchester, Sheffield, Newcastle and three in London. The acts are performing all the viewers' favourites from the TV show, including classic songs.

The X Factor Live Tour has been one of the biggest selling arena tours in the UK for the last eight years, with more than 2 million people seeing the live show.

Union J said, "We cannot wait to go on The X Factor Live Tour and meet all the fans and thank them personally for all their support."

James Arthur added, "A year ago I was busking in the street and playing in my local pub so knowing that next year I’ll be performing at arenas is totally mind blowing, I can't wait."

Union J and their lovely coats will be joining the tour

The tour kicks off on 27 January at Manchester Arena - with performances at both 2.30pm and 7.30pm - and culminates at Belfast's Odyssey Arena on 27 February.
