A hugely successful boyband who rose to fame on a television talent show are making a stop in Glasgow on their latest tour.

JLS (an acronym for Jack the Lad Swing) came second on The X Factor in 2008 and have gone on to sell 2.3 million albums and 3.4 million singles in the UK alone.

Along the way Aston Merrygold, Oritsé Williams, Marvin Humes, and JB Gill have picked up five MOBO awards and two Brits.

In May 2013 the band announced they were splitting up , but in 2021 they reformed for a comeback tour that became one of the year's hottest tickets as they performed to over 350,000 people.

Announcing the dates, the band said: “We couldn't be more excited to announce another UK and Ireland arena tour!
