X Factor finalists reunite as live tour rehearsals get underway

The X Factor finalists have reunited for the latest run of rehearsals for live tour.


Eight acts are on the bill for the live arena shows which will kick off on Friday night at the Belfest Arena.

The group of performers from last year’s show will be touring across the whole of the UK and Ireland for a month before ending their run in March in Brighton.

A total of seven acts are on The X Factor tour for this year, made up of finalists in last year’s 2017 contest.

They are Simon Cowell’s Groups Rak-Su and The CutKelvins and Sharon Osbourne’s final Girl Grace Davies.

Plus Louis Walsh’s top Boy Lloyd Macey and Nicole Scherzinger’s Overs Kevin Davy White and Matt Linnen.


They’re joined by a seventh wild card act from the other finalists, Sean and Conor, who won a public vote.

The X Factor 2018 tour will see the contestants reprising their favourite performances and we should be in for a good show.

Rak-Su tweeted from rehearsals ahead of the first show: “Been a long day and quite intense… almost a little bit draining mentally.

“Tour rehearsals going well and we will have so much fun, but also got a reality check. need to stop being so thankful for just being where we are and start aiming for the stars #toohumble #moreambition

“People that are super successful don’t get there by mistake. It’s a lot of hard work yes… but it requires a lot of vision. You have to believe in a vision and then keep striving to reach it. If ur just happy with where you are You’ll never aspire for that level of growth u need”

As always, we will be bringing you ALL of the latest from the live tour from the very first show to the last so stick with us for all the news, videos and gossip!
