JLS fans went wild on Wednesday after the boyband announced new tour dates for 2024.
The group – which consists of Aston Merrygold, JB Gill, Marvin Humes and Oritse Williams – have announced a Summer Hits tour for 2024 in open-air venues across the UK.
They are currently performing their Everybody Say JLS: The Hits Tour in venues around the UK, but due to popular demand have announced even more dates for next year.
JB said: ‘Ah wow! The response to our ‘Everybody Say JLS – The Hits’ tour has been so incredible from all our JLSters that it was a no brainer for us to announce summer dates for 2024!
‘We LOVE touring in the summer, especially as we get to meet fans in parts of the country that DON’T usually host us in the arenas.

Speaking about whether there could be a future ‘Junior JLS’, Marvin said: ‘We’ll see. They came out last year at the O2. We’ve got eight between the four of us, so that’s two bands, so yeah listen, you try and stop them from getting on the stage. They love it!’
