In a note to fans, the group said: “2020 felt like the right time as it marks a lot of important anniversaries for us… It’s the 12th anniversary of JLS being a group, the 11th anniversary of our debut album release and 10 years since we became the Best British Breakthrough Act at the Brits!!
“So, since there is so much for us to celebrate, we decided there was one thing we just HAD to do… GO ON TOUR!!
“This November, we’ll be playing 15 arenas around the UK & Ireland and of course we want you ALL to be there! 2020 marks 10 years since our very first tour too, so it’s incredibly special that we get to see all of you again – our amazing fans – later in the year. We can’t wait…”
JLS will give an exclusive first comeback performance on The One Show live on Friday night on BBC One.
Marvin told The Sun newspaper: “The last time we got together we just thought, ‘It kind of feels like it’s time now’. It’s not about money, it’s the right thing to do.
“This is about nostalgia, celebrating what we did and what we had together, and giving the fans what they’ve been asking for.”
JLS have been one of The X Factor’s most successful acts with their debut self-titled album selling over 1 million copies to date. They’ve had five number one singles and a further five songs which made the Top 10.
