PICTURES! X Factor 2014 live tour hits Manchester

The X Factor 2014 live tour continued in Manchester this weekend with last year's finalists once again performing for a packed out arena.

Around 15,000 X Factor fans were in the City for the latest tor date with Tamera Foster opening the show with a huge Rihanna hit while Nicholas McDonald sung Robbie Williams hit 'Candy'

Luke Friend impressed fans as he went through the crowd singing Play That Funky Music before serenading one female member of the audience with One Direction's What Makes You Beautiful.

Sam Callahan and Rough Copy had the girls screaming as they played track after track in the near three hour long show while runner up Nicholas McDonald proved popular with the mums in the audience.

But it was of course X Factor champ Sam Bailey who most were interested in watching and the mum-of-two didn't let fans down with a headlining set which included covers including And I'm Telling You with notes that seemed to go on forever.

All eight of the stars ended the show on stage with a huge group performance of Lifted ahead of further dates across the UK through this month and next.
