THE hugely popular X Factor Live show is set to return to Aberdeen next year.
Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) has confirmed that the show will be staged at the venue on Sunday, March 1 as part of its annual UK and Ireland tour.
The tour kicks off in Belfast in mid-February, and takes in Aberdeen, Bournemouth, Birmingham, Brighton, Cardiff, Dublin, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield.
The finalists will perform classic songs and viewers' favourites from the current series of the show.
AECC managing director Brian Horsburgh said: "We are pleased that X Factor Live is returning to Aberdeen for an 11th consecutive year.
"It is always a popular show, and we are sure that fans of The X Factor will be delighted."
Seen by more than three million people last year, the touring show has been one of the most successful annual arena tours in the UK for the past 10 years.
The current series of the show has just moved from the audition stage to the live studio shows, which will continue over the next two months.
