The X Factor is back on the search for the nation’s top vocal talent and now you can take a trip down memory lane with this homage to The Beatles Sgt Pepper poster featuring the very first auditions of some of the most memorable acts of the last 13 years.
The X Factor team is ready to hit the road on a nationwide tour in search of the next big breakout music stars to join this ever growing hall of fame.
The mobile auditions tour will be visiting a number of cities across the UK starting from January 29th.
All any budding hopefuls need to do is turn up on the date and time specified. If they impress The X Factor team with their vocals, they will then be in with a chance of auditioning in front of the X Factor judges, when the judges’ auditions take place in the summer.
Full list of dates and locations available below:
