The band that finished as runners-up in the first ever series of The X Factor have reunited – and bring their tour to King’s Lynn next month.

G4, who were runners-up in 2004, brought classical music to British reality TV for the first time with their performance of Nessun Dorma.

The multi-platinum selling vocal quartet, whose eponymous debut album topped the charts in 2005, is touring to celebrate its 10-year anniversary.

G4 sold 245,000 copies in its first week of release and became the fastest selling album that year.

In 2007, after three albums, more than two million album sales and five sell-out tours, G4 disbanded to follow individual interests.

Frontman Jonathan Ansell said of the upcoming tour: “It’s incredibly exciting to be going back on the road with the boys for the first time in a number of years.

“You can expect the classic G4 treatment – lots of classic songs given the traditional G4 twist, and there will definitely be a surprise or two along the way.”
