X Fac­tor stars head for city show

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News - By Mark Pear­son mark.pear­son@pe­ter­bor­oughto­day.co.uk @Et­guide

TWO of the fi­nal­ists from last year’s TV pop­u­lar X Fac­tor com­pe­ti­tion have agreed to per­form live in con­cert at the East of Eng­land Show this sum­mer.

The show’s run­ner-up Mar­cus Collins will be joined by Ir­ish singer Janet Devlin in Peter­bor­ough on Satur­day, July 7.

This is the first time an out­door evening con­cert will form part of the three-day fam­ily event which has moved away from its reg­u­lar June date this year.

The an­nounce­ment of the X Fac­tor stars’ ap­pear­ance is a coup for both the show and the re­cently re­branded Peter­bor­ough Arena com­plex sit­u­ated in­side the East of Eng­land Show­ground.

Peter­bor­ough Arena man­ag­ing di­rec­tor, Keith Dal­ton, said: “This is go­ing to be a fan­tas­tic evening not only for vis­i­tors to the show, giv­ing them an ex­tra, ex­cit­ing di­men­sion to their great day out, but for the gen­eral public.

“We are thrilled that Mar­cus and Janet will be per­form­ing in the open air grand­stand at the show­ground, and hope that this marks the start of a new era for live mu­sic and big name acts in the city.”

Liver­pudlian Mar­cus re­cently soared the charts with his cover of The White Stripes’ track Seven Na­tion Army. Red-head Janet cap­tured the hearts of the X Fac­tor au­di­ence with her cover of Cold­play’s Fix You.

This year’s East of Eng­land Show takes place from July 6 to July 8. It will be packed with events, at­trac­tions and ac­tiv­i­ties for all the fam­ily – from agri­cul­tural high­lights and in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ences to clas­sic cars, vin­tage trac­tors and shop­ping.

Ad­mis­sion for the Satur­day - to in­clude en­trance to the con­cert – range from £10 for a child ticket and £19 for an adult ticket (£17 se­nior cit­i­zens con­ces­sion) to £45 for a fam­ily ticket.

Ad­mis­sion to the con­cert only, af­ter 4pm, is £15.
