Tears as The X Factor 2017 live tour concludes in Brighton

There was a tearful end to The X Factor 2017 live tour in Brighton this week.

The eight acts from last year's show concluded their trip across the UK and Ireland having performed more than 30 gigs in all.


Two of those were in Brighton this week where thousands of fans watched on during the nightly performances.

A total of eight acts were on The X Factor tour for this year, made up of the top acts in last year's 2016 contest.

They were Nicole Scherzinger's Boys - Matt Terry and Ryan Lawrie - and Simon Cowell's two Girls - Emily Middlemas and Samantha Lavery.

They were joined by Sharon Osbourne's remaining Overs - Honey G and Saara Aalto - and finally Louis Walsh's two Groups - 5 After Midnight and Four of Diamonds.

Ahead of the final performance, Matt Terry tweeted: "Last day of tour !! Met some incredible people along the way and friends for life"

"THATS A WRAP!!! THE most incredible experience of my life. Thank you for everything guys! Nothing can compare to bond we have ❤️❤️" Sam added.

Four Of Diamonds' Sophia Saffarian posted after the last gig: "Feeling truly blessed today. We just completed our first ever arena tour having been together less than a year 😮😮😮😮😮😮😮"

And Emily wrote: "The end of one journey. The start of another. Thank you for being amazing, I love you guys so much. Always follow your dreams. ✨✨✨"


Although it's the end of The X Factor for the acts we're still going see plenty more of them in the not too distant future.

Ryan Lawrie is heading out on his own tour later this spring while Honey G, Matt Terry, 5 After Midnight and Saara Aalto have all picked up record deals already.
