The X Factor Live tour travels various cities across the UK and delivers a fantastic performance featuring some of the best artists from the TV series. It is a show not to be missed and anyone of any age can enjoy it.
Everyone knows the X Factor and it is well known for creating stars within the music industry, such as Leona Lewis, One Direction and Union J, to name just a few. After the ITV television series takes place ever year and the winner has been announced, the new year starts off with an X Factor tour, visiting various cities in the UK, showcasing the best artists from the show.
X Factor Live is a highly popular area tour that stops off at different UK cities, including London, Nottingham, Liverpool, Bournemouth, Manchester, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Sheffield, Birmingham, Newcastle, Leeds, Cardiff, and Brighton. It gives fans the chance to see a selection of their favourite stars perform live in one concert.
X Factor tickets tend to sell out very quickly, particularly in popular cities such as London and Manchester. This is why it is important to purchase them as soon as you can after they go on sale in order to not miss out. There may be different seating choices to select from at different prices, so there should be something to suit every budget. Sometimes there are several dates per city and some morning and evening slots per day to give different fans a chance to see the show at a time that suits them. For example, the matinee show may be more suitable for younger audiences, so children do not need to stay up late.
The X Factor TV series starts with an audition process to whittle down the participants from thousands to hundreds. It is amusing to watch some of the worst singers try their luck while amazing to witness some true talent perform in front of the judges. Simon Cowell often features in the panel alongside other judges such as Louis Walsh, Cheryl Cole, Tulisa, Sharon Osbourne and various others over the years. The judging panel tends to change every year, while Louis remains a fixed part of the show. The comments from them can be amusing and it makes for excellent television.
The process then continues with further auditions, sometimes in front of a live audience in an arena situation, then the finalists are taken to boot camp where even more are sent home. The final selection process takes place at Judges’ Houses, often in tropical locations abroad, where the finalists are chosen to continue to the live shows. Each week, the contestants take to the stage to sing popular hit songs under certain themes picked by the show. ABBA week and Big Band weeks are just some of the most popular ones. The categories include groups, girls, boys and overs. Boybands often feature on the show and are usually met by crowds of screaming teenage girls. This adds to the excitement and hype of the show and watching the concert live in an arena near you will complete the X Factor experience.
