The X factor has been bouncing back a bit in TV viewers affections with 5.1 million tuning in last weekend, up 400,000 on the equivalent Sunday night the previous weekend.

That’s good timing for the announcement that The X Factor Live Tour is returning for 2019 and will be landing at Dublin’s 3Arena on March 5th and the SSE Arena in Belfast 24 hours later.

The tour is sponsored, as is the show by Just Eat who will be activating around the concerts.

X Factor Digital Presenter, Becca Dudley, will be hosting the tour again next year. She has been hosting MTV UK programming since 2012 and presents multiple shows across the network, as well as covering worldwide music events with World Stage from Brazil to Belgium. She is also a presenter on Apple Music’s global radio station Beats 1 and in 2016 she launched her own music platform DEADLY, which encompasses live music, radio and video content.

The X Factor Live Tour 2019 starts in Nottingham on 15th February 2019 and will travel across the UK and Ireland to finish with the two concerts in Dublin and Belfast.

Over three million people have seen the Live Tour since it began 14 years ago, making it one of the UK’s most successful annual arena tours.
