Goodbye The Greatest Hits Tour....the name says it all as boyband JLS prepare to call it a day with one last arena tour.
They play Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on Tuesday, December 10.
J.B. Gill, Marvin Humes, Aston Merrygold and Oritsé Williams will perform all the hits including number ones Beat Again, Everybody in Love, The Club Is Alive, Love You More and She Makes Me Wanna.
Goodbye: The Greatest Hits Tour will be the last time the band will perform together and they want to make sure that this tour is the best ever and that they end on a high.
Since JLS came second on X Factor in 2008, they have been one of the most successful acts in the show’s history. They are the only act from the show to have had five number one singles.
Over the past four years they have sold over six million records and racked up a number of impressive awards, including two Brit Awards and five MOBO Awards, matching Kanye West’s current record and firmly placing them as one of the UKs most successful music groups.
Oritsé, Marvin, Aston and JB have recently shifted gear into a fresh era with the release of new album, Evolution. The album deftly documents a growth for the boys and sees them move in a more urban direction.
Evolution also saw JLS working with a stellar list of American urban producers including hip hop producers The Runners (Rihanna, Chris Brown, Rick Ross) and the legendary R&B hit-maker Rodney Jerkins (TLC, Kanye West, Beyoncé). JLS return with their second single, Give Me Life, which is released through RCA Records on December 23.
Give Me Life is a storming club anthem with a climactic chorus, co-written by the boys and produced by Australian producer, Jaz Rogers.
A fantastic example of dirty, electro pop at its best, it combines a fierce beat with the signature soulful JLS harmonies.
The JLS live experience has been one of the hottest tickets over the last few years and they’ve sold millions of tickets throughout their career. This new arena tour follows their hugely successful Fourth Dimension tour back in the spring.
“The past four years have been incredible for us and we can’t wait to headline our third arena tour,” the band said in a joint statement.
“Our fans are amazing and it’s been wonderful to share this journey with them. We’re really excited to perform tracks off Evolution as well as fan favourites.”
