Jedward to tour European airports to deliver anti-terrorism message

The twins won't be playing any music, either...

X Factor’s most famous twins Jedward are set to tour European airports in a ‘World Peace Tour’ this January, and won’t actually be playing any music along the way.

The Irish twins announced the tour via their Twitter account on Christmas Day, and will visit multiple airports per day, taking part in meetings with fans at each stop. The tour takes in 19 cities in 12 different countries, including what the pair have revealed is a first appearance in Spain.

John told the Irish Sun “we’re not performing but instead we plan on defying the current fears about terrorism by reassuring our fans that everything will be okay.”

The pair have also refused to charge fans for meet and greets, so, it seems, will make no money from the trip.

Edward explained: “It’s not about money. It’s about making a connection with cool people. People can take selfies with us. Whatever they want to do.”

The pair will learn today (January 1) whether they’ll make the shortlist for the chance to represent the UK at Eurovision, having previously represented Ireland in both 2011 and 2012.

The BBC is thought to be taking an alternative strategy to the contest this year, having achieved a series of poor results. They’ll be looking to put forward an act that already has a fanbase across Europe.
