The nation’s favourite X Factor star and I’m A Celebrity contestant, Jake Quickenden, is embarking on his debut tour ‘Laid Bare’ this July 2015.
Jake’s UK tour will span 11 dates across the country, featuring a collection of original tracks as well as a handful of heart-melting covers.
It has been a rollercoaster two years for the 26-year-old heartthrob who won over the nation as a runner-up on the award winning series of I’m a Celeb and 2015 will see Jake returning to his first love – music. A fusion of Indie and Pop, the Scunthorpe born star will wow crowds with a collection of songs that he has written himself. The reality star will be bringing the wow-factor to stages across the UK in July as he embarks on this latest chapter.
Footballer turned singer and TV personality; Jake has never stopped pursuing a music career. Family heartache in 2000 saw Jake vow to make his dreams of singing stardom into reality. He finally got his big break in 2014, when he auditioned for The X Factor. Jake impressed the judges and his passion for music led him to the live stages with mentor Mel B.
Then followed a whirlwind two weeks which saw Jake enter ITV’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here. With his natural charm and warm personality, he was crowned runner-up in the fourteenth series of the hit reality show.
Since leaving the jungle he has never been far from the spotlight. His presenting dreams came true this year as he was offered a slot on This Morning. He has since fronted the Sainsbury’s Comic Relief campaign and will be touring with The Dreamboys in June. Jake will open the show with three songs to make sure the audience is warmed up and ready for The Dreamboys hot under the collar performance.
He is the one to watch in 2015.
Jake said: “The tour will showcase who I am as an artist. There was a lot of speculation around what I was going to do after coming second to Carl Foggety on I’m a Celebrity, but I was never going to neglect my first love – music. I am so excited to reveal what I have worked so hard on over the past year and I cannot wait to share my next chapter with those who continue to stand by me.”
