Simon Cowell might not be around, but he’s still cashing in. Plans have already been made for the last 9 acts of the 2011 show to hit the road in 2012 for The X Factor Live Tour 2012.

The show will feature the bold Misha B, the little pixie child that is Janet Devlin, cutie Marcus Collins, The erm, interesting but albeit note-worthy Johnny Robinson, musical diva Craig Colton, funky Little Mix, The Risk (I still can’t believe they are gone, boo) Lady Gaga lover Kitty Brucknell and comeback act, the 16 year old Christina Aguilera, Amelia Lily.

The show will kick off in Manchester on February 25; moving on to Liverpool, Nottingham, London, Dublin, Belfast, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Newcastle, Sheffield, Birmingham, Brighton and Cardiff.

When breaking the news to the nine acts, Tulisa said:

“This is what every artist dreams of, to sell to sold-out arenas across the country and I can tell you from my own experience that nothing beats it. You’ve all been given a great opportunity now make sure you go out there and enjoy it.”

Misha B was ecstatic, saying: “Last year I was busking on the streets of Manchester and now to be touring around the UK is just sensational. This is the reality of what dreams can actually become and the first stop is Manchester which is home for me so bring it on!”

Tickets are £32.50 with other deals available for families. You can get your tickets here as well as other details and dates.
