It’s Fergie time in Manchester again

X FACTOR fans should have few problems remembering the performances of Rebecca Ferguson.

Rebecca Ferguson

The Liverpool born star didn’t win the popular ITV show in 2010, finishing runner-up to Matt Cardle.

But she quickly became a star with her debut album, Heaven, a critical and commercial success selling 128,000 copies in its first week.

‘Heaven’ peaked at number three in the UK Official Charts, making Ferguson the fastest-selling debut solo artist of the past decade.

She went on to follow up with Freedom in 2013 before a third studio album, Lady Sings The Blues, covered a number of jazz classics made famous by Billie Holiday.

‘Superwoman’ was 31-year-old Rebecca’s fourth album which gave her a fourth consecutive top 10 in the charts.

She continues to flourish as a confident songwriter and live performer and embarks on countless tours across the UK, Europe and US.


Rebecca launches her latest UK Tour in Preston on Saturday, February 10 and arrives in Manchester on Friday, February 23 to play Academy 2.
