X Factor's Wagner is back with his own band and a tour!


X Factor star Wagner has been a bit quiet since the end of last year's live tour, but the loveable British-Brazilian is back with his very own tour and band!

The hairy performer will be taking to the stage with his band The Wagner Experience with a UK tour in March this year.

The 55-year-old revealed this week how The X Factor had changed his life, and he now has money for a custom-made Harley Davidson bike and his very own boat.

He explains: "I’m making a good living now. I had always worked, as a teacher and then with my own home improvement company and a gym.

“But then, after three operations on my shoulder, I was living on benefits – walking in the rain, with my arm in a sling to Asda after 7pm to buy reduced price items and the carrier bag digging into my fingers as I walked back again.

“Then I thought, if I can’t work, I’ll sing."

Wagner, who finished sixth in the 2010 series, added: "I always wanted to sing but show business is difficult to have a break. The X Factor exposure gave me that break.”
