X Factor stars stage Cresset show

Lifestyle | Article

Brothers Andy and Carl Pemberton are better known to the nation as X Factor runners-up Journey South.

The duo, from Teeside, captured the hearts of millions of fans in their bid to win the top prize of a £1 million recording contract in the hit ITV show back in the 2005 series.

They polled a staggering 4.3 million votes in the show’s grand final – and pop mogul Simon Cowell described the pair as “two of the best singers I have ever worked with.”

Although they did not walk away that contract, Journey South still went on to record an album with Cowell’s Syco label, which entered the charts at number one, and sold 220,000 copies in the first week alone.

Now, with a second album Home under their belts, Andy and Carl have embarked on a 43-date tour around the UK. They will be stopping off at The Cresset in Bretton, Peterborough, on Friday, May 16 at 7.30pm.

Their concert will showcase new songs from Home as well as tracks from their first album Journey South. But they will also sing the hits that they performed on X Factor – which included Angels, Living On A Prayer, Candle In The Wind and Let It Be. Elder brother Andy said: “We really appreciate the great stepping stone the X Factor gave us and the chance to have a number one album and get so many great fans.

The new album though, is the reason why we’ve been gigging and playing as a band for the last 10 years. This album is a true reflection of us as a band and we are so proud of the songs we’ve written and recorded here and hope our fans feel the same.”

Tickets for the show cost £17.50 (£16.50 concessions).

Call The Cresset box office on 01733 265705 or 01733 842500 to book.
