Wildcard act for The X Factor Tour 2018 revealed9th Dec 17 | Entertainment News
The teenage buskers will hit the road for the tour in February and March 2018.
Brothers Sean and Conor Price have landed a place on The X Factor Tour next year along with winners Rak-Su and the other semi-final acts after thrashing the competition in a public vote.
The Irish duo, who were mentored by Simon Cowell on the show, left the programme in a double elimination, narrowly missing out on a place in the semi-finals.
They received 65.5% percent of votes in an online poll hosted by the Sun Online to take up the seventh and final spot on the tour’s line-up.
Sean and Conor and Rak-Su – who became the first boy band to be crowned the winners on the ITV show – will be joined on the tour along with runner-up Grace Davies, and Kevin Davy White, Lloyd Macey, The Cutkelvins and Matt Linnen.

They added that they are “so excited” and will not let their fans down.
“Your support means the world to us. See you on tour!”
The X Factor Tour 2018 kicks off in Belfast on February 16 and continues through until March 4, stopping by Birmingham, Bournemouth, Brighton, Cardiff, Dublin, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield.
Rak-Su’s single Dimelo, which was penned by them and features Wyclef Jean and Naughty Boy, debuted at number two on the charts this week.
