Boy band JLS are back on tour and heading to the ITV Meridian region, travelling to Brighton and Bournemouth.

The group took a break to work on solo projects but said they are thrilled to be performing to live audiences again after the pandemic postponed their comeback.

They were one of the biggest boy bands of their time who found fame on the X Factor.

After 8 years apart, JLS are back with new music and a tour and will be performing at Brighton and Bournemouth on the 8th of November and Bournemouth on the 9th November. 

The four piece came second on the ITV show in 2008, losing to Alexandra Burke but that didn't stand in their way.  

Their first two singles 'Beat Again' and 'Everybody in Love' both went to number one in the UK Singles Chart. The band also won Brits for British Breakthrough and British Single in 2010. 

Their first album since the band's break in 2013, will be out in December.
