Lucy Spraggan: Limited Number of Public Tickets Now Available!

Share |

You may have heard that we've got former X Factor star Lucy Spraggan coming to 53 Degrees as part of Freshers Fortnight. Well, due to overwhelming public demand, we've made a limited number of tickets available for general sale. Get yours quick - once they're gone, they're gone!

Lucy Spraggan shot to fame after appearing The X Factor 2012, but has grown to become a respected singer-songwriter in her own right. Not your typical X Factor contestant, the quirky, genre-splicing Spraggan describes her music as 'A-Flop', a mixture of acoustic, folk and hip-hop, and has a career stretching back much further than her television debut. Having tried her hand at a variety of jobs (fire-fighter, plumber's apprentice, cave tour guide and even magician!), Lucy was already carving out a career for herself in the music world, with the independently released 'Top Room At The Zoo' album in November 2011, and a support slot alongside Razorlight in 2012.

After narrowly missing the top spot in the 'Live and Unsigned' competition, and picking up almost half-a-million views for independently released single 'Last Night' on YouTube, Lucy was encouraged to take part in The X Factor, making it through the audition and bootcamp stages, shooting up the UK Top 40 with hit single 'Last Night' and getting a standing ovation for the self-penned 'Tea and Toast', a personal song about a relationship with an older woman which had Spraggan in tears.

Hotly tipped to win the competition, Spraggan voluntarily left The X Factor after falling ill, which would have automatically seen her promoted to the next round. Feeling that this put her at an unfair advantage, Spraggan stepped aside to give her fellow performers a fair chance.

Since then, Lucy's career has gone from strength to strength. Snapped up by Columbia Records earlier in the year, new album 'Join The Club' is due for release in October, featuring summer hit single 'Lighthouse'. Lucy will be performing alongside her band, with support from upcoming act Darlia, who are sure to be packing out arenas in their own right very soon.
