Controversial, X Factor star Frankie Cocozza – who was booted off the TV show – will be headlining in Shrewsbury as part of his national tour in March.
The singer, who celebrated his 20th birthday yesterday, will perform at The Buttermarket on Friday, 22 March, and tickets went on sale today.
Cocozza caused a series of controversies on the X Factor after revealing that the names of some of his many lovers were tattooed on his bottom.
He eventually got booted off the show when his behaviour overstepped the mark and he broke competition rules
He went on to be last year’s runner-up in Celebrity Big Brother
The vocalist, who boasts over one million twitter followers, played to a sell-out gig in London in December before announcing his national tour.
Martin Monahan, owner of The Buttermarket , said: “Frankie is a loveable cheeky-chappy, and certainly came across as a really genuine guy in last year’s Celebrity Big Brother, where he came second to Denise Welch.
“He’s obviously serious about his music and released his first EP in November.
“We’re delighted to have been included as one of his national tour dates, and it’s really exciting how many large promoters are now approaching us with some amazing bands, especially after them seeing the two sell-out James Arthur gigs recently.
“We’re certainly going to be putting Shropshire back on the map with some great live music.”
Tickets for Frankie’s Shrewsbury concert went on sale at 9am today at www.thebuttermarket.co.uk
