Jedward have today announced they will be performing 6 UK concert dates this May. Further dates, including the possibility of Dublin shows, are yet to be confirmed.
Jedward, real names John and Edward Grimes, will also be releasing their fourth album. As yet the name has not been released, but a series of tweets from the Dublin twins suggested that there are at least 16, possibly more, tracks on the album. All have been written and produced by John and Edward.
The concerts will be between May 10 and 16 inclusive, with two dates in each of Manchester, London, and Glasgow. Dublin dates are as not yet confirmed.
Jedward have released no fewer than 12 singles since 2014, all of which have are self-penned. The May tour will be the first time the pair have performed headline shows in the UK since their 25th birthday concert, at London’s O2 Academy, Islington, in 2016.

JEDWARD are about to embark on meet and greet tour of European airports.
In a climate of global warming and terrorist attacks, the pop twins plan to settle the nerves of fans across Europe by clocking up air miles seeing them.
However John and Edward won’t be playing any gigs on their World Peace Tour just meeting fans at airports.
John told the Irish Sun: “No, we’re not performing but instead we plan on defying the current fears about terrorism by reassuring our fans that everything will be okay.”
Visiting 19 cities in 12 countries, there had been confusion among Jedheads when dates for the tour had been announced with locations including Terminal One at Dublin Airport, on January 11 at 9:20pm, having rendezvoused with fans at Stansted and Glasgow airports earlier that day.
But John and Edward won’t make a cent from the dates as they refuse to charge fans for the meet and greets.
Edward said:”It’s not about money. It’s about making a connection with cool people. People can take selfies with us. Whatever they want do.”
Jedward fan Juliet Barrable from Bishops Stortford in the UK, who contributes to website Jedworldnews.com, said:”This is such a sweet and generous thing for John and Edward to do. They did something similar in Stanstead airport last year. The mood was very relaxed and everyone got a chance to meet them.”
Jedward were trending yesterday morning after they asked fans to start the day with a Good Morning Jedward message. Thousands joined in.
The World Peace Tour could get a huge boost on New Year’s Day if Jedward are short-listed as one of the acts the UK public will be voting on to represent them at Eurovision.
Sources say the two 24-year-olds had approaches to sing the UK entry for the 2016 Eurovision.
John said:”We’re interested as we know we’re already popular in Eurovision and will have support across Britain to represent the UK because of the fan base we got in X Factor.”
Brothers John and Edward Grimes represented Ireland twice at the song contest in Dusseldorf in 2011 and Baku in 2012.
Although they failed to win on both occasions, their 2011 Irish entry Lipstick went on to become a hit across Europe, and they have been invited back to the song contest every year as special guests.
The BBC’s new open approach is to make sure the act chosen to represent UK has more appeal to the European public who vote in the final contest after a series of disastrous results.
