Stats from this year's X Factor live tour show that the concert bought in millions of pounds at each of its venues, regularly completely selling out huge arenas such as London's O2. The group of the final nine contestants played to more than 300,000 fans during the tour, which concludes this Sunday in Cardiff.
The show made close to £1.75 million from its three shows at London's O2 Arena alone, selling every single one of the 56,000 available seats the country's top venue. A further £1 million was picked up from dates at London's Wembley Arena, where the group played to another 35,000 X Factor fans.
In Manchester, the show raised a staggering £1.4 million as the likes of One Direction and Cher Lloyd performed their top songs from last year's live shows to 47,000 pop lovers. £1.2 million was added to the running total as the tour moved onto Birmingham, with Matt Cardle and Rebecca Ferguson helping to entertain a further 37,000 X Factor aficionados.
More dates in Newcastle, Liverpool and Sheffield added £800,000, £600,000 and £550,000 receptively to a total of more than £10 million made throughout the 40 date run across the country.
The top nine X Factor finalists are each expected to pocket a nice sum of £100,000 for their time on The X Factor live tour, which finishes this Sunday in Cardiff as last year's finalists play their final shows at the Motorpoint Arena.
