FANS of JLS will be doing back flips at the news that the band will be coming to Bournemouth next year. JLS have announced their third UK arena tour that arrives at the BIC on December 17, 2013.

Tickets will go on sale at 10am on Friday with ticket prices to be announced this week. Since JLS came second on X Factor in 2008, they have been one of the most successful acts in the show’s history.

They are the only act from the show to have had five number one singles and over the last four years they have sold over six million records. Last month they took home their fifth MOBO Award, matching Kanye West’s current record and firmly placing them as one of the UKs most successful music groups.

Oritsé, Marvin, Aston and JB released new album Evolution last week, which saw the boys move in a more urban direction.

JLS said of the forthcoming tour: “The past four years have been incredible for us and we can’t wait to headline our third arena tour. Our fans are amazing and it’s been wonderful to share this journey with them. We’re really excited to perform tracks off Evolution as well as fan favourites.”
