The Voice UK: Semi-finalists to take part in live tour

The final eight acts will set off on a month-long tour of major UK arenas this September


Only one act can be named The Voice 2012 – but eight will share the prize of a UK tour taking in London’s O2 and ten other stadiums around the country, the BBC has announced.


Venues in Aberdeen, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Brighton, Cardiff, Glasgow, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield will all get a visit from the as-yet-undecided semi-finalists between 12 and 27 September.

Eighteen acts are still in the game, with two more set to depart following this weekend’s live show, when Jessie J and Danny O’Donoghue weed out one singer each from their teams.

Pre-sale family tickets for the tour go on sale on Thursday 3 May, with the rest available from Saturday 5 May, priced from £35. Full tour dates are as follows:
