    The Beat Again tour kicks off on 12 November in Dublin, before calling at places like Sheffield, Newcastle, Leeds, Glasgow, Manchester, and London, before winding up with a big (and possibly festive) show at Birmingham's Resorts World Arena on 28 December.

    The full list of JLS tour dates is as follows:

    12 November - 3Arena, Dublin13 November - SSE Arena, Belfast15 November - Brighton Centre16 November - Bournemouth International Centre18 November - Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff19 November - Bonus Arena, Hull20 November - Flydsa Arena, Sheffield21 November - Utilita Arena, Newcastle25 November - First Direct Arena, Leeds26 November - The SSE Hydro, Glasgow27 November - Manchester Arena30 November - M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool1 December - The O2, London2 December - Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham28 December - Resorts World Arena, Birmingham

    The group first formed in 2006, and went on to become runners-up of the fifth series of the ITV reality talent show The X Factor in 2008, coming second to Alexandra Burke.

    Their first two singles 'Beat Again' and 'Everybody in Love' both went to number one on the UK Singles Chart.

    In April 2013, JLS released a statement on their website announcing that they would be splitting up after releasing a greatest hits collection and completing their final arena tour.

    "We will always remain brothers and friends and we will always be your boys," they said at the time.

    What might they play?

    Since it's been seven years since the group last performed live, and their comeback dates are some nine months off at the time of writing, it's difficult to say just which tracks they'll be unearthing from the back catalogue.

    Sure, hits like 'Everybody in Love' and 'Beat Again' are sure to be included, but what else can fans expect to hear?

    According to, JLS' 'average' setlist in 2013 - the last year they actively toured - looked like this:
