After mounting speculation among fans that a tour announcement was imminent, JLS have confirmed that they will be embarking on a fifteen-date tour across the UK and Ireland later this year, for the 'Everybody Say JLS: The Hits Tour.'
Members Aston Merrygold, JB Gill, Marvin Humes and Oritsé Williams started to become more active on the band's social media accounts over the past couple of weeks, with the official tour announcement being shared on the band's social media channels today.
"We couldn't be more excited to announce another UK and Ireland arena tour later this year. Last time out was totally surreal and we've been eagerly awaiting the right time to do it all over again!! Playing live and seeing our amazing fans is definitely the BEST part of being JLS. We can't wait to see you."
The band originally shot to success after finishing as runners-up on the 2008 series of 'The X Factor.' In the years that followed, the band embarked on several headline tours around the UK and Ireland, won several BRIT Awards, released four studio albums and gained a legion of dedicated JLS'ters. The band announced their disbandment in 2013, but that was not the end of JLS, as they got back together for the 'Beat Again Tour' in 2021, with a new studio album released shortly after the tour. Now, to the delight of fans, this new tour will see the band take to the stage to perform their countless hits live again, including 'She Makes Me Wanna,' 'Eyes Wide Shut,' and 'Do You Feel What I Feel?', among many more.
