Joe McElderry announces UK dates to support second album release
Date Posted: 22/08/11
Former X Factor winner Joe McElderry is going on tour around the UK later this year to support the release of his second studio album.
He will start things off on Sunday November 6th with a gig at Margate before he goes on to Southend-on-Sea, Birmingham and Nottingham, with those booking Edinburgh hotels able to see him perform on Saturday November 12th.
McElderry will then play shows for the rest of the month, including gigs in York, Glasgow, Liverpool and London.
The performances come after the 2009 X Factor winner released his second album, titled Classic, today (Monday August 22nd).
"Since winning The X Factor in 2009 I have been on an incredible journey. My new album is a snapshot of where I am today and I am excited about the opportunity to record and perform some of this amazing repertoire. I hope people join me on my musical journey," he noted.
McElderry's first album Wide Awake reached number three in the UK chart, with debut single The Climb entering at number one.
