X-Factor’s Joe McElderry coming to Burnley
X Factor winner Joe McElderry is hitting the road with a brand new show after the sell-out success of last year’s nationwide tour.
The Evolution Tour comes to Burnley Mechanics on Friday, May 1st, featuring a host of new numbers and routines.
Joe cemented his place in the nation’s hearts after Cheryl Cole nurtured the shy, good natured lad from South Shields and turned him into an overnight sensation. At just 18 years old, he auditioned for the ITV show “X Factor”, and bowled the judges over with his rendition of Luther Vandross’ “Dance with My Father”.
Joe then impressed guest mentor Whitney Houston and performed a brilliant duet with George Michael on the live semi-final before going on to be crowned the winner of X Factor 2009 by a clear majority. His unmistakable voice, easy wit and warm rapport have endeared him to all ages from five to 95.
Whether he’s singing a pop hit, or stunning the audience into silence with opera, Joe has evolved from boy crooner to the master of his craft since winning X Factor.
Tickets for the Burnley Mechanics shows are £19.50; discounts £17; family of four £60 (two adults and two under 14s).
