Operastar on tour

HOT on the heels of his Popstar to Operastar success, X-Factor star Joe McElderry is to give a concert in Aberdeen’s Music Hall on Wednesday, November 16 as part of a nationwide tour.

The singer rose to fame when he won the sixth series of The X Factor in 2009, which was followed by a number one single and a debut album, Wide Awake, which cemented his place in the heart of the British public.

So much so that he became the triumphant winner of this year’s Popstar to Operastar, receiving 80 per cent of the votes in the television final.

Tickets for his November 16 concert at the Music Hall go on sale this Friday online at www.boxofficeaberdeen.com, by phone at 01224 641122 and at Aberdeen Box Office at the Music Hall, His Majesty’s Theatre and The Lemon Tree.

Now signed to Universal Music, Joe’s nationwide tour celebrates the release of his second album, Classic, and gives his legion of fans the chance to see him perform live.
