Union J Magazines & TV Screens Tour

Echo Two, Liverpool

Union J are proof that you don’t need to win X Factor to be a massive hit in the world of pop music.

The band who came fourth in TV’s 2012 X Factor are currently selling out venues across the UK.

The four handsome lads who were brilliantly supported by Elyar Fox, Ollie Marland, Room 94 and 5Angels had a packed Echo Two Arena crowd on their feet and screaming in Liverpool last Monday night.

Room 94, a UK pop/rock band were my favourite support act of the night and the lead singer has an amazing voice.

When it was time for the main act, Jaymi, JJ, Josh and George hit the stage to screams and cheers from their adoring fans.

They announced that they would be performing all the songs from their album and that they had a few treats up their sleeves.

They kicked off the show with ‘Where Are You Now’ and got the crowd off their seats singing along.

I was singing along to every song and was having a fantastic time and the show just kept getting better and better, from the visuals behind the boys to the reaction of the crowd.

In part of the show they said they were going to bring four girls onto the stage while they sang their song ‘Amaze Me’. I really wanted to get picked but unfortunately I didn’t.

The boys had a time each where they came on the stage on their own and sang a song after showing the crowd a selection of baby photos from when each of them were little.

My favourite song they performed on the night was ‘Head In The Clouds’ and the reason why was because of the brilliant idea they decided to do while they were singing. As the song started, four TV screens came down and each of the lads stepped behind a screen which was filled with clouds and as they did that their head appeared in the screen between the clouds as they continued to sing.

They did a medley of Taylor Swift songs including ‘22’ and ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’.

They performed their singles ‘Beautiful Life’ and ‘Carry You’ which both made it to the charts and they sold lots of records when they released the singles.

They closed the show with ‘Last Goodbye’ and left the stage.

The stage then lit up with ‘Do You Want More?’ in bubble writing and the crowd went wild one last time as the boys returned to perform their final song, ‘Save The Last Dance’.

Then they bowed, waved to the crowd and left the stage.

It left me really happy and overwhelmed. It was a fantastic night and they were worth seeing.

I will carry the memory of that concert with me forever.
