You’ve joined them on the journey from the judges’ room to the arena, been on the edge of your sofa during the dramatic six-chair challenge at Bootcamp, travelled to Judges’ Houses, tuned in to see the starlets transform in the live studio shows…and now is your chance to see your favourite acts live in person as they embark on The X Factor 2015 Live Tour.
The top eight acts taking to the stage on this year’s live arena tour are: Andrea Faustini, Ben Haenow, Fleur East, Jay James, Lauren Platt, Only The Young, Stevi Ritchie and Stereo Kicks.
Simon Cowell broke the news to the final eight acts this weekend and the final eight acts couldn’t be more ecstatic at the news: Andrea said: “I feel overwhelmed. It’s an amazing chance for me to show everyone who I am. It’s going to be a massive experience for me.”
Ben Haenow added: “I actually can’t believe it, to get to go back and play at arenas such as Wembley and to get to go and meet the fans up and down the country. It’s just going to be probably the most amazing experience of my life and it’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long, long time. I’ve always tried to get into big venues and to do something like this, like a huge prestigious tour, it’s kind of like, yeah, that’s it for me, that’s made my life.”
Fleur, , from Simon’s over 25s category said: “(Screams!!) I can’t believe I’m on the X Factor tour. This is incredible. I’m so excited, I can’t wait!”
Jay James added: “I’m ecstatic! Absolutely ecstatic! To go out and meet all the people that have supported me and given me this amazing opportunity; it’s going to be a real honour!”
Lauren Platt: “Oh, I cannot believe I am going on tour with everyone. It’s the craziest thing knowing that the journey doesn’t stop here and I get to continue my X Factor experience with the rest of the guys.”
Stevi Ritchie: “Wow! It’s crazy, mental really. I never expected to go on tour, you know I really wanted to go on tour, it’s one of my dreams. Wow! I can’t believe it. It’s going to be mental. And to perform in front of thousands of people each week, I really can’t wait. It’s a dream come true. It’s amazing.”
Parissa from Only The Young: “Oh, it’s just incredible. We’ve waited for two years to do something like this and to get to go to the arenas all across the UK is just insane.”
Charlie from Stereo Kicks: “We are so excited that we are going on tour. This is the biggest opportunity for us so far. Touring at least 30 places, and it’s where all the big people from X Factor started and built up their fan base. That’s where One Direction started. If you had asked me previously before the show, what would be your main thing to do, I’ve always said touring, and now we actually have the opportunity to do it, up and down the country, it will be incredible.”
