Sam Bailey Beyonce Tour, As promised, X Factor winner Sam Bailey will be supporting megastar Beyonce when she next touches down in the UK for her Mrs Carter Show tour.
However, Bailey will be supporting Bey for just the one date – on February 24, 2014 at Birmingham’s LG Arena, a spokesperson for Bailey confirmed.
The former prison officer Bailey told Digital Spy she would love to share the stage with Beyonce, only if it’s “for just a minute.”
“My daughter will come and watch it, but my son probably won’t because he’s only 4 and it might be a bit too loud for him. Can you imagine on the Beyoncé tour Tom sitting there playing Angry Birds on the tablet with his headphones on? It’s not going to look very good, is it?” she added.
36 year old Bailey, who was crowned the winner of this year’s X Factor on Sunday (December 15), also described label boss Simon Cowell as “inspirational”, admitting he’s banned her from making “a cheesy album with loads of covers.” Hmm – we’ll believe it when we hear it.
Sam Bailey’s winner’s single ‘Skyscraper’ – an erm, cover of Demi Lovato – is, inevitably, on course to snag this year’s Christmas number one spot, although there’s stiff competition from the likes of Lily Allen, Pharrell Williams and AC/DC.
