ACM Student Set to Tour with X Factor’s One Direction

Outstanding… ACM Guitar Degree Student Joe Badger will be touring with the X Factor finalists One Direction for the band’s debut tour playing with supporting act Matt Lonsdale.

Joe, who is currently studying a guitar degree at ACM, will be on the bands debut sell-out tour for two months in front of thousands of One Direction fans. Despite this Joe remains unfazed performing to such large crowds – for example 14,000 at Dublin’s O2 – and highlighted the incredible opportunity and experience.

“I’m not too nervous about it just yet but we’ll see nearer the time… A personal highlight will be playing at the Birmingham NIA.”
Joe Badger, speaking about the upcoming tour

After the excitement of the two-month tour, Joe plans to return to ACM to finish his degree, whilst continuing to pursue a career as a self-employed freelance musician.
