The 'Sparks' four-piece will perform on four of the six dates on the JLS Sound City Summer Tour.
Cover Drive and Little Mix have been announced as the tour support acts for JLS's upcoming summer tour across some of the UK's best open-air venues.
The 'Sparks' four-piece will join The X Factor 2011 winners Little Mix on the 'She Makes Me Wanna's singers' 'JLS Sound City Summer Tour' which kicks off in Oxford in August.
"While we've known for a little while Little Mix might join JLS and Alexandra [Burke] on this summer tour, to be able to finally confirm it is amazing, and with Cover Drive also joining four of the six scream-inducing, trail-blazing shows, this tour offers unbeatable value for music fans, and places this tour firmly at the top of the 'must-do' list for the summer holidays," tour spokesman Dion Clements said in a statement.
Cover Drive's presence on the tour will come fresh from the release of their debut album 'Bajan Style', which is out on 30th April, and will see them performing their biggest hits so far including 'Lick Ya Down', 'Twilight' and brand new single 'Sparks', which was released on Monday (23rd April).
The JLS Sound City Summer Tour kicks off on 19th August with a performance at South Park in Oxford and wraps on 2nd September at the Lincolnshire Showground in Lincoln.
