This I personally absolutely approve of, I thought Wagner’s performances week on week made watching the XFactor a lot more bearable with his crazy stage shows and shaking while singing style, not a note in his head but as the tales of the man as a younger gent and of his strangeness went on you couldn’t help but admire how week on week he performed as best he could and got booed because people had voted to keep him.

No such disgracefully mean behaviour will take place in Dublin no doubt with the announcement of a headline performance by Wagner at The Wright Venue right before christmas on December 23rd.

Tickets are €15 and on sale now via,

Just as it seems press for Paije isn’t as quick as it is for Wagner, Paije will be playing the Wright Venue on December 16th if a little Lenny Henry / Luther Vandross is more your style. December 29th in The Wright Venue will likely see this coming Sundays evicted contestant play the Venue so the likes of Mary Byrne, Cher Lloyd, Rebecca, Matt or One Direction could be in Swords if the votes don’t go their way.
