X Factor winner Joe McElderry has proved since his 2009 victory that’s he’s far from just a pretty face with a pop voice.
The popular Geordie’s subsequent reality TV appearances have seen him triumph in both Pop Star to Opera Star and The Jump, in which celebrities learned to ski jump.
But it’s the underlying love of pop performing that brings Joe, 22, back to Kent this week as his Set Your Soul Alive tour visits Gravesend.
Joe’s first single The Climb reached number one in the UK and Irish singles chart and was soon followed by the release of his debut album titled Wide Awake. He parted ways with Simon Cowell’s label Syco but has gone on to release four more albums and is currently writing his fifth, expected to be released later this year.
This Sunday’s show at The Woodville marks a return to Gravesend, where he helped the theatre mark its 45th anniversary just last year and caused a jostle for tickets.
Manager Neil Chandler said: “Joe made a huge impact during our 45th year celebrations and we are delighted to welcome him back. Many people were disappointed not to get tickets last year for his sell-out show, so book early to avoid disappointment.”
Joe’s concert is at The Woodville on Sunday, May 18, at 7.45pm. Tickets from £26. Call 01474 337774.
