Ipswich: Little Mix and Cover Drive join JLS for Chantry Park gig

X FACTOR 2011 winners Little Mix are joining JLS’ Sound City Summer Tour, we can exclusively reveal.

They will be joined by rising stars Cover Drive.

Jesy, Perrie, Leigh-Ann and Jade were the first girl band to reach the final of the hit ITV1 show and the first group winners.

They went straight to number one in the UK singles charts with their cover of Damien Rice’s Cannonball and X Factor judge Gary Barlow is writing songs for their forthcoming album.

Cover Drive have had two UK top ten singles, including the number one single Twilight earlier this year.

“While we’ve known for a little while Little Mix might join JLS and Alexandra on this summer tour, to be able to finally confirm it is amazing,” says tour spokesman Dion Clements.
