Monday 24th October - X-Factor 2010 winner Matt Cardle has today announced that he will be hitting the road in March 2012 for an extensive 20-date tour of the UK and Ireland. Matt Cardle tickets will go on sale at 9am on Friday 28th October 2011 and will be available from 

When Matt Cardle turned up for his first audition on THAT show just over 18 months ago, little did he know the mind-numbing shifts in plastic factories or gruelling labour on building sites would soon be a thing of the past. The hard graft hasn’t stopped though. 

This year has been about touring with X Factor, and over the last four months, studiously writing and recording his debut album ‘Letters’ (released via Columbia Records on 17th October). He has teamed up with the best in the business to bring his dream to life. Hours tucked away in Biff Stannard’s Brighton studio. Late nights and cases of beer with Starsailor’s James Walsh in West London. Awkward dinner dates interrupted by flashes of genius for a new middle-eight… 

Not only has Matt created something special, he has come up with a combination of music and lyrics far beyond the expectations of any chart debutant. Don’t miss your chance to see him performing his amazing new material live.
