JLS have experienced a 300% increase in demand for tickets for their December tour after announcing they will be splitting up
Demand for JLS' farewell tour has soared after they announced their split.
Fans of the chart-topping boy band - who revealed they will go their separate ways following the conclusion of their 'Goodbye' tour at the end of this year - have flooded secondary ticket selling websites in a bid to see to the group live one last time, and the 'Hottest Girl in the World' hitmakers have experienced a 300% increase in demand for tickets.
Louise Mullock, spokesperson for ticket reseller Seatwave, said: "JLS have had major success in the past 5 years and have a strong fan base. The fact that this will be fans last chance to see them perform live together has resulted in mammoth demand for tickets."
The group announced the 13-date tour last November in support of their fourth studio album, 'Evolution', but the boy band - consisting of J.B. Gill, Marvin Humes, Aston Merrygold and Oritse Williams - rebranded the tour after announcing their split yesterday (24.04.13).
The 'Everybody in Love' singers will release a final album, also titled 'Goodbye', and a new single in the lead-up to the tour, which begins in Nottingham on December 4 and ends in London on December 21.
Announcing their break-up, Aston said: "It's just that time. We are still best of friends and always will be, but this is the end."
