JLS ARE coming to Stoke as part of the Britannia Stadium Big Event and tickets are available now.
The boy band will be the headline act at the Big Event on Sunday 2nd June, which will also feature a Celebrity XI v Potters Legends football match and a host of other attractions for all the family.
Demand tickets for tickets is expected to be high as the visit to the Britannia Stadium forms part of JLS' farewell year after they announced they intend to split up at the end of 2013.
Marvin Humes, J.B. Gill, Aston Merrygold and Oritse Williams will treat those attending the Big Event to a selection of their greatest hits, having had five UK number ones since they emerged as runners-up on the television reality show The X-Factor.
Only 8,000 tickets are available for the Big Event which should ensure JLS fans are given an 'up close and personal feel' when the chart toppers are performing.
Coronation Street stars Alan Halsall (who plays Tyrone Dobbs), Chris Fountain (Tommy Duckworth) and Ryan Thomas (Jason Grimshaw) are signed up to play for the Celebrities against a Stoke Legends line-up that will include Mark Stein among many others.
