  Pop Idol finalists go on tour!
Updated 06 February 2002, 13.26
Gareth Gates
The final 10 Pop Idol contestants are to go on a national tour.

It's already been announced they would perform an incredible five concerts at London's Wembley Arena.

Now you'll be able to see them in Sheffield, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow, too!

Gareth 'unwell'

Meanwhile Gareth Gates was forced to abandon his publicity campaign after the pressures got to him.

He was said to be feeling "unwell" after all the interviews he and William Young have had to do in a bid to win the grand final on Saturday.

A show spokeswoman said: "We're hoping he will feel better by this afternoon."

And if you can't get along to see the Idols in person on tour, Woolworths are selling chocolate Will and Gareth lollipops!

  • London's Wembley Arena: 14-17 March

  • Sheffield Arena: 21, 22 March
