Dublin’s got the X Factor

Whether we like it or not, we have all heard of the ITV talent show, The X Factor. It doesn’t matter if you make an effort to watch it every week, the social media newsfeeds are forever swamped with opinions and outrage at who is voted off each week. The 2012 series was no different – controversial, entertaining and separating the talent from the pretenders.

The 2012 series saw Yorkshire-born musician, James Arthur, go through to take the crown as the winner, complete with a recording contract. Currently, we see the X Factor Live tour hit the road, which will be arriving at the Dublin O2 Arena on the 25th February. Are you ready for it?



It may not be to everyone’s tastes, and its popularity may have dropped since its inception almost a decade ago, but for many diehard fans, it’s still the number one show to look forward to every weekend in the run up to Christmas. Fans all over the country will be ordering their tickets to the live shows and with the help of the Travelodge Dublin hotel; you can treat your X Factor lover to the concert while, the following day, you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the Ireland capital.

The seven final acts from the live series will be arriving in Dublin at the end of February to perform live in front of an arena jam packed to the rafters. Due to popular demand for X Factor tickets, another date has been added for the 26th February, showing just how popular this leg is.

The top seven artists performing are winner, James Arthur and runner up Jahmene Douglas, along with soulful songbird Ella Henderson, controversial acts Rylan Clark and Christopher Maloney, and boy bands Union J and District 13. A plethora of classic hits and favourites from the show are planned to be part of the set.

The tour kicks off in Manchester on the 27th February, before heading over the Irish Sea for dates on the island.

Tickets cost between 40 and 50 Euros and doors open at 6:30pm. Get there early to secure a great viewing spot and book your hotel now to enjoy a day or two in the capital.
