Aston Merrygold is set to embark upon a UK headline tour this October. The 3AM Tour will see Aston taking his arena-sized talents to club venues around the country after performing in front of over 350,000 people during JLS’s hugely successful reunion tour. The Aston Merrygold live experience sees him mix solo favourite such as ‘Get Stupid’, ‘Trudy’, ‘I Ain’t Missing You’, latest track ‘How Many Times’ and just maybe the occasional throwback to JLS.
Aston says, “I can’t wait to get back out on the road to play some of my solo material. Performing live is what I love to do most and it will be great to see some of my fans again!’

Recent months have seen Aston drop the single ‘How Many Times’ (as well as a remix from Kandour), star as a special guest judge during the ‘The Masked Singer’ live tour, launch the ‘Pizza & Tequila’ podcast, and feature as Willard in the musical adaptation of classic ‘80s movie ‘Footloose’.
That work ethic has been a hallmark of Aston’s career ever since he first came to attention with JLS. They became the biggest UK pop group of the era, with five UK #1 singles, another five Top 10 hits, their self-titled #1 album, and a further five Top 5 studio records. He co-wrote many of their big songs, including ‘Love You More’, ‘She Makes Me Wanna’ and ‘Eyes Wide Shut’- all of which featured on their greatest hits collection ‘Goodbye’.
He has complemented his solo career with a succession of major TV appearances. Highlights have included reaching the final of ‘The Masked Singer’ as Robin, competing on ‘Strictly’, judging ‘Got To Dance’ and acting as a music manager on the CBBC show ‘Almost Never’.
