In pictures: Were you in the crowd at the iconic JLS Metro gig in Peterborough?

Pop band JLS, fronted by Peterborough’s Aston Merrygold, shot to fame in 2008 when they were the runners-up in the hugely popular X factor series of that year.

In 2009 the band played Peterborough’s Metro club in London Road to a packed audience of local fans.

It was at the height of their fame and the band’s self-titled debut album was released on 9 November of that year and subsequently sold over 1 million copies in the UK.

The band played a huge open air concert on the Embankment the following year but this was their first big show in the city.

November 2019, it was revealed that JLS would return as a band after six years, with plans to launch a tour and release new music and on 12 February 2020, JLS announced their reformation for a reunion tour called the Beat Again Tour.
