The X Factor live tour will once again hit the road early next year, and the dates for its stop-off in Dublin have been announced.

While the finalists will all appear on the arena tour as usual, the 2018 tour will offer something a little different that involves the audience - as for the first time ever, the audience will choose their own winner each and every night.

The X Factor's digital host Becca Dudley will be on the road with the contestants and presenting the tour competition each night. And at the end of each show, the audience will then become the judges – and choose the winner.

You'll have a chance to take part at Belfast's SSE Arena on Friday, February 16th and Dublin's 3Arena on Saturday, February 17th.

Tickets are on sale from usual outlets this Friday, October 13th at 10am.
