Former X Factor and Popstar to Operastar winner Joe McElderry will be performing at Blackpool Opera House, on the opening night of his upcoming UK tour.

He will also be joined on stage by fellow X Factor contestant Lloyd Daniels and Any Dream Will Do runners up Keith Jack and Ben James-Ellis, who have all gone on to appear in Bill Kenwright’s production of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat.
