It doesn’t look like Union J’s reunion tour is going ahead – and fans are not happy.
The band – who formed on The X Factor in 2012 before officially disbanding in 2019 – announced in December last year that they would hitting the road for a special reunion tour in spring 2023.
Dates included Newcastle’s O2 City Hall on May 26, finishing off in Liverpool’s Empire Theatre on June 3.
However, previously excited fans have been left fuming after reportedly receiving emails from Ticketmaster, stating that their tickets for the shows had been refunded.
One fan shared the message she received from the Empire Theatre, which read: ‘Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, the promoters of the show have taken the difficult decision to cancel the performance that was due to take place on 03 June 2023.
‘We understand the disappointment this will cause and apologise for any inconvenience.’The band formed on The X Factor in 2012 and were due to embark on a reunion tour this spring (Picture: Instagram)
The gutted fan wrote alongside her tweet: ‘The silence from them on all of this is actually disrespectful’.
She wasn’t the only one claiming to have received information about a refund, as another tweeted: ‘I was so confused when I got the email and saw they haven’t said anything’.
Others also expressed their frustration after spending a lot of money on tour expenses.
‘Safe to say I won’t be risking losing any more money on this band in the future now! Yeah we’ve got refunds but some of us have lost money in travel and hotels had a feeling this would happen but it’s been handled horrendously!’, one fan tweeted.
‘Not surprised the Union J tour has been cancelled, for a band that was gone for years, they needed WAY more promo to successfully sell tickets. Completely out of order fans had to find out via emails from the ticket companies and not the band or management themselves’, another penned.

Another blasted: ‘union j are “all about the fans” but couldn’t even announce the tour being cancelled themselves after keeping us all in the dark for months. disappointed tbh’.
The group’s official social media pages are yet to share any formal announcement, having been inactive on their Instagram page – which boasts 244k followers – for weeks.
They have continued posting on their individual accounts, however, without addressing the matter.Were you due to see Union J on tour?Comment Now
Union J were put together as a four-piece on Simon Cowell’s ITV talent show alongside George Shelley, who quit the group in 2016.
They were initially signed to RCA Records and released their first single, Carry You, in June 2013, shortly followed by Beautiful Life.

Former Stereo Kicks singer and fellow X Factor Casey Johnson replaced George in 2016, but the band’s bosses soon dropped him.
George was due to rejoin his bandmates for the reunion shows later this year but, if emails from ticket companies are anything to go by, that doesn’t seem to be going ahead.
Reps for Union J have been contacted for comment.
