JLS announce new dates for Sheffield and Nottingham on reunion tour
Pop stars JLS have rescheduled their 2020 reunion tour, including dates in Sheffield and Nottingham, to summer next year.
The promoter of the tour said: “Due to the current coronavirus outbreak and the government measures implemented to limit its spread, the JLS November/December 2020 shows have been postponed.”
JLS said: “Hey guys,With regret we’ve had to make the decision to reschedule our JLS Beat Again tour to June 2021 as ensuring the safety of our incredible fans, crew and venue staff is our main priority.
"Our reunion tour is such a monumental moment for us as a band that we want to make sure we are able to give the best show possible. Given the amount of time and preparation it takes to produce an event of such scale we’ve had to postpone to a time that permits us to do so.
“We can’t wait to see you all next year and thank you for your patience and endless support.”
This year’s concerts at Sheffield FlyDSA Arena on November 20 and December 18 have been moved to June 25 and 26, 2021 respectively. Shows at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena on December 2 and 5 this year have been relocated to June 22 and 23, 2021.
Following a seven year hiatus Aston, Marvin, Oritsé and JB will take the ‘Beat Again’ tour to 15 arenas across the UK and Ireland reuniting with their legions of loyal fans.
Since the band’s inception in 2007, JLS reimagined the modern boyband and made their mark on British music through their inimitable soulful, RnB, pop sound underpinned by highly stylised choreography. Collectively JLS have amassed five number one singles with their instantly recognisable chart hits Beat Again, Everybody In Love, The Club Is Alive, Love You More and She Makes Me Wanna.
Having carved out their own niche as a mid-late noughties mainstay, the band return to the spotlight following a record breaking career. They sold more than six million records and four multi-platinum albums and their self titled debut went straight to number one and has since sold more than a million copies in the UK.
The band are two time BRIT winners, having won Best British Breakthrough and Best British Single with ‘Beat Again’, which was also named the fastest selling debut single of 2009. As well as their huge commercial success and consistently dominating the pop charts, the band made a massive impact on urban music culture with five MOBO Awards and three Urban Music Award wins highlighting the astronomic affect their music had in resonating in both pop and RnB music realms.
The tour is an opportunity for JLS fans across the country to come together to enjoy the hits which continuously sound-tracked the British charts for seven years running.
