In case you missed it, JLS are getting band back together and heading out on a massive UK tour later this year.

And of course, they’re paying a trip to visit us here in Manchester.

After finishing runners-up on ITV reality singing competition X Factor, JLS broke through in 2009 when their debut single ‘Beat Again’ shot straight to number one on the UK Top 40, before their follow-up singles ‘Everybody In Love’, ‘The Club Is Alive’, ‘Love You More’, and ‘She Makes Me Wanna’ also enjoyed chart success.

Another five top 10 hits, a self-titled number-one debut album, three more top-three records, two BRIT Awards, and five MOBO Awards then followed, all before they said goodbye with their ‘Greatest Hits’ album in 2013.

But after the lads made their first comeback in 2021 and it was a huge success, the hugely-popular boyband is going back out on the road on a massive UK and Ireland arena tour later this year.


Here’s everything you need to know about the EVERYBODY SAY JLS: The Hits Tour.

When does the tour start? And what cities are they heading to?

Kicking off in Dublin on 20 October, Aston, Marvin, Oritsé, and JB will take to the stage in several major UK cities such as Cardiff, Belfast, Birmingham, and Liverpool, before they make their way over to see us in Manchester.


Newcastle, Leeds, Sheffield, and Nottingham are some of the other cities on the list, as well as two nights in London at the O2 Arena.

The tour is set to run from Friday 20 October – Sunday 11 November 2023.

When are JLS playing in Manchester?

After playing to roaring crowds at some of the UK and Ireland’s biggest arenas for the last couple of weeks of October, JLS will be arriving in Manchester to play to tens of thousands of adoring fans inside the AO Arena in early November.

How much will tickets cost?

It’s expected that there’ll be three different price brackets of general admission tickets, so you can pick from seats or standing costing either £39.25, £53, or £75, depending on your budget.

If you’re a super fan looking to splash the cash though, there’s also the JLS Best Seat VIP Package for £141 per ticket.

This package includes a top-price seated ticket to see JLS at the AO Arena, as well as a limited-edition A4 tour print that’s pre-signed by all four members, and an exclusive VIP gift chosen by the band.

When do tickets go on sale? And where can you buy them?

The question you’ve presumably all been looking for the answer to, tickets for EVERYBODY SAY JLS: The Hits Tour go on general sale this Friday 3 March at 9am.


Tickets are available from See Tickets here.

What is the band saying?

“We couldn’t be more excited to announce another UK and Ireland arena tour,” the boyband said in a statement ahead of the tour.

“Last time out was totally surreal, and we’ve been eagerly awaiting the right time to do it all over again, as playing live and seeing our amazing fans is definitely the best part of being JLS.”
