Emily Middlemas kicks off her live tour this weekend and premieres her new single.
The Scottish singer/songwriter from Glasgow who competed in Series 13 of The X Factor as part of the girls category mentored by Simon Cowell, finishing 4th place.
Following the X Factor's live tour earlier this year, Emily's been hard at work in the studio on her music and will put her first track later this year.
Emily's tour, which was announced back in July, kicks off this weekend on 2nd September, with multiple dates already sold out, and will see her travel around the UK throughout September, October & November.
It'll give fans a chance to get up close & personal in small intimate venues performing a 1 and a half hour set taking them on a journey down ‘Memory Lane’ from her early stages through to X Factor. The show promises to be up-beat, and a feel good show for everyone!
Emily said in a message to fans: "This is a tour just to say a massive thank you, personally, to every single one of you guys.
"This tour is going to be so incredible. I am so excited to grow closer towards you all and get to know each city and the people who have been supporting me better.
"I will be taking a trip down memory lane for you all. Taking you all on a journey throughout my life. From lots of stories and songs I wrote and performed ever since I was 9 years old, till now. I can't wait for you all to get to know who I really am.
"This is a tour all about being myself and I want all of you guys to do the same. A place to feel free, happy, to sing your little hearts out. I will make this so special for you all and I promise I will not let you down.
"I love you all to the moon and back.
"Love, Emily x"
