JLS have confirmed they will perform a massive outdoor concert at The PROBIZ County Ground, Hove this summer in association with Heart FM.

After the success of Sir Elton John’s visit to The PROBIZ last summer, the biggest boyband of a generation will be bringing an all new show to Hove on Monday 27th August.

They recently rocketed their already stellar success to even greater heights with the launch of their third album Jukebox, and fresh off the back of their hugely successful Sport Relief 2012 single PROUD, Aston, Marvin, Oritsé and JB are primed and ready to backflip their way into the nation’s hearts once more with this brand new stage tour.

Working with a roll call of international pop-R&B production talent on their new album - who’s collective CVs take in chart juggernauts by the likes of Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Black Eyed Peas and more - the lads have crafted 14 killer tracks ranging from heart-pumping techno-laced stompers to tender acoustic balladry. Simply put, they’ve taken the blueprint created by their hugely successful debut and blown it out of the water.

“We’re still a young band with a lot to prove,” says Marvin. “We had to prove ourselves every week on The X Factor, then we had to prove we were proper recording artists with our first album. Now we want to prove that wasn’t just a fluke, we’re here to stay.”

Commenting on the summer concert tour announcement, tour spokesman Dion Clements said “JLS are, without doubt, one of the biggest bands in music today, so adding these six large-scale summer concerts to their schedules, particularly at venues which enable fans to see them close to home, is just fantastic news – everyone involved is totally hyped. We’ll also be announcing some really special guest performers in the coming weeks which will make these concerts even bigger”.

Speaking on behalf of Sussex CCC, Dave Brooks, Chief Executive, added “We are delighted to welcome JLS to Hove over the August Bank Holiday. Having invested £8m over the last two years in ground improvements, we are keen to become the premier open air venue on the South Coast and hosting events of this scale can only help in that aim.”
