The Voice announces live UK tour for autumn 2012
2012 UK tour cancelled due to poor ticket sales
There is no chance that you haven't heard of The Voice, the latest 'talent search' show to hit mainstream Saturday nights. Like the X Factor and Britain's Got Talent before it, The Voice is proving to be both a ratings hit and, at times, all anyone seems to talk about.
Unlike its ITV counterparts, The Voice is, so far at least, somewhat less combative. The much-talked about judging panel of Will.i.am, Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones and the hitherto less well-known Danny O'Donoghue, seem only to be in gentle competition and there is, as yet, no room for the 'this displeases Caesar' shtick of Cowell and his Botoxed legion. No, The Voice is altogether more grown-up.
That said, and as someone will inevitably point out, this junk's gonna get real soon enough. And, when it does, the 20 or so hopefuls that took to the stage last weekend will be whittled down to just eight and it is this octet (including the eventual winner) which will head out on tour in the autumn. The judges will not be appearing on the tour. So, if you're getting into it now; imagine how you're going to feel when we're down to a final two? You don't want to miss that tour.
The huge tour kicks off at the BIC in Bournemouth on 12th September, followed by arena shows in Cardiff, London, Aberdeen, Manchester and more, before the final date at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield on 27th September 2012. The London show takes place at The O2 Arena on Saturday 15th September.
We will have tickets available from 9am on Friday 4th May, priced from £32.50. Whatever happens throughout the live shows and whoever wins, sales for these shows will be brisk with some tickets hotter than Jessie J's gold jeggings.
Update: Tour Cancelled
It has been officially confirmed that after many press rumours and poor ticket sales, The Voice - Live on Tour that was due to trill its way around the UK in the autumn, has been axed. Holders of tickets have been advised by the organizers to seek refunds from their original vendor.
