JLS cancel and reschedule outdoor August 2012 UK dates

Posted: 7th June 2012
The all-conquering R&B machine have scrapped dates due to 'scheduling issues', other shows still available

Since they placed second to Alexandra Burke in the fifth series of X Factor in 2008, an increasingly persuasive body of evidence has emerged to suggest that JLS cannot be stopped.

The facts speak for themselves; a No 1 album (with two more reaching No 2), five No 1 singles (and three more as featured artists), two BRIT awards and a couple of MOBOs. They sell huge volumes of records, make girls scream and make boys say things like "well, they seem like nice enough lads".

After performing at this year's Queen's Diamond Jubilee Concert over the weekend, JLS will be out on the road for a run of dates, dubbed the Sound City Festival gigs. Unfortunately, due to 'unavoidable scheduling', shows in Oxford and Carlisle have been cancelled and Scarborough has been rescheduled for 25th August (not the 18th). Other shows are unaffected, therefore the first show now kicks off in Inverness on 23rd August, followed by (probably) umbrella-heavy gatherings in retimed Scarborough, Ipswich, Hove and more, before the final date announced so far at the Lincolnshire Showground on 2nd September 2012.

We have tickets available now, priced generally £33 except for Inverness which is £36. As always with JLS, sales will be quicker than the pulse of a teenage girl who's just seen Aston adjust his breeches.

Holders of tickets to Oxford and Carlisle should check their bank accounts/ card statements for automatic refunds (due to be applied by the original point of purchase within the next fortnight).
