It’s that time of year again. The time when the cream of the crop from household TV hit X Factor comes to our shores. You enjoyed watching and voting for your favourite acts during the show and even loved viewing the humiliation some showed to gain their 15 minutes of fame, so now live it live in person.Fresh off the stage at the LG Arena in Birmingham, the stars of the live show will be gunning for another performance and always enjoy rocking up to Dublin. The Irish capital gets one of the first views of the extravaganza, and even before most of Britain sample the show. Following the Dublin dates, the X Factor Live Tour will move onto Sheffield before travelling to London.- Laura O’Connor
