ONE of Britain’s most successful boybands, JLS, have today (Friday, October 27) confirmed they will be heading to Taunton as part of their ‘Summer Hits’ tour.

The 11-date UK wide tour will commence in June next year, with the 2008 X-Factor runners up arriving at Vivary Park on Saturday, August 24, 2024, for a bank holiday weekend performance.

The boyband, consisting of Aston Merrygold, Marvin Humes, Jonathan 'JB' Gill, and Oritsé Williams, have sold over six million records, two million live tickets and racked up five UK chart number ones.

In 2010, the impressive quartet were the first X-Factor act to win a prestigious BRIT Award, going on to win a further five MOBO Awards, four Digital Music Awards and three Urban Music Awards.

JLS’s latest album, titled ‘2.0’, was released in 2021 and the group are now looking to tour with a brand-new live show bursting with fresh elements alongside classics hits such as ‘Beat Again’, ‘Everybody in Love’ and ‘She Makes Me Wanna’.

Caitlin Brown of LCC Live, who are bringing the outdoor show to Vivary Park as part of their Live in Somerset 2024 series, said: "We wanted our first Live in Somerset show for 2024 to be a big one and we hope the people of Somerset are just as excited as we are for JLS.

"The boys have a number of great pop hits and we can’t wait to hear them echoing through Vivary Park for the August bank holiday – hopefully we will see you all there.”

Tickets for JLS at Vivary Park in Taunton go on sale at 10am next Friday, (November 3) from or in person at Taunton’s Visitor Centre on Fore Street.
