The crowned princes of pop, Aston, Marvin, Oritsé and JB aka JLS, certainly know how to impress their fans and justly deserve their well earned reputation for staging spectacular shows.
When they announced that they are hitting the road with fellow chart topper Olly Murs for a run of very special Sound City concerts throughout June and July, it came as no surprise when the nation's box offices were put to the test.
JLS have cranked up the action still further and have invited 16 yr old American "Good Girl", Alexis Jordan to open the show. When rapper Jay Z walked in unexpectedly and heard the then unknown Alexis recording a demo in a New York studio, he was so impressed he immediately signed her. His belief in Alexis and her ability to deliver a tune has paid immediate dividends for his Roc Nation label.
Her debut single, "Happiness" topped the US Hot Club chart and her second single "Good Girl" made its debut at number two in the UK charts. The catchy song is still riding high and into its sixth week in the list of the nation's top tracks. Her self-titled debut album made it into the number nine in the UK Album charts.
Fans that opt for the standing tickets at the stadium concert (Winchester & Swindon shows are all standing) will also be in for an extra special treat. JLS have said they want to get closer to their fans than ever before, and they are installing a special long walkway that will take them away from the main stage and right into the middle of the crowd.
