Swindon clubbers crazy for a bit of Rylan style
5:00pm Wednesday 28th November 2012 in By Matthew Edwards, Sports reporter
GANGNAM Style is set to go down a storm at Bushwackers & Sin tomorrow night after Rylan Clark proved the biggest draw of all the club’s X Factor visitors.
Rylan split opinion among viewers, but Twitter was buzzing with comments from people hoping to get tickets for the nightclub gig, within minutes of him leaving the popular show on Sunday.
Rylan, from Essex, failed to beat boyband Union J to a spot in the next round of the finals after singing Mamma Mia by ABBA and a medley of Supremes songs, then Wires by Athlete in the sing-off.
The flamboyant 24-year-old, drew constant criticism from judge Gary Barlow but also gained an army of fans for his entertaining performances, including his take on chart hit Gangnam Style by South Korean rapper Psy.
All the VIP tables have been snapped up at the Fleet Street club, which hosts acts voted off the ITV1 show.
Sara Quinn, general manager of Bushwackers, said: “Rylan is massively popular. We sold all our VIP tables in just under 24 hours, which has never happened before. My phone was about to explode and it could be the busiest night in the club’s history.
“The doors open at 10.30pm but we would advise everyone to get here as early as possible to avoid the queues.”
The journey continues for Swindon’s own X Factor star Jahmene Douglas, who made it through tho the nest round.
Jahmene is thought to have been lined up to turn on the Christmas lights in Wharf Green next month.
