JLS are the first act to be announced for the new Leeds Arena, which is due to open next year.

The band will play the venue on 20 December 2013, as part of an arena tour. Tickets go on sale on Friday.

The arena is currently being built on Clay Pit Lane in Leeds.

The council said that while JLS were the first act announced, they would not be the first to play, as an opening programme is being put together for September.
