Global pop sensations Little Mix will be embarking on their biggest UK tour to date in May-June 2014. The tour sees them headline some of the UK’s biggest arenas and includes a massive Bank Holiday Sunday show at London’s The O2. Due to overwhelming demand second dates have now been added at Glasgow Clyde Auditorium and Cardiff Motorpoint Arena.
Also due to exceptional public demand Little Mix’s Manchester O2 Apollo show will now take place at the Manchester Phones 4u Arena on the same date – Tuesday 27th May. The Nottingham show has now moved from the Royal Concert Hall on 5th June to the Capital FM Arena on 28th May. Little Mix said:
“We have been overwhelmed with the reaction to our biggest tour yet and to allow as many of our fans as possible to see us we have had to make these changes.”
Tickets for rescheduled dates remain valid and purchasers should contact their point of purchase to arrange an exchange.
Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirwall recently returned with their outstanding second album, ‘Salute' which follows their hugely successful debut album 'DNA'. Having already spent two weeks in the Top 10 of the UK Album Charts, ‘Salute’ presents Little Mix at their exuberant best and is infused with the electrifying energy the quartet bring to every live performance. Hit single ‘Move’ took the UK by storm in September, and sold over 130,000 copies within the first three weeks of its release in November. Showcasing the girls unrivalled ability to create fun and powerful pop music, ‘Move’ is a guaranteed dance floor filler.
Across the 12 tracks that make up ‘Salute’, Little Mix boldly expand their contemporary pop and rnb influences with forward-looking production from the UK’s finest up-and-coming talent. Either writing or co-writing nine tracks themselves, collaborators across the album include up-and-comer Duvall, who adds sampled beat boxing and vocal flourishes to ‘Move’, whilst MNEK lends his hand to the explosive euphoria of ‘Nothing Feels Like You’. TMS, the team behind smash hits ‘Wings’ and ‘DNA’, once again combine with the band for the inspirational, powerful new single ‘Little Me’ which is due impact on 29th December.
Still maintaining elements of the sound that made their debut such a standout, Little Mix also re-team with several other familiar collaborators namely Nicola Roberts, Shaznay Lewis and Futurecut. The result is an album that cements their place as a bold, truly brilliant UK pop act.
Since Little Mix formed in 2011, they’ve had two No.1 singles and a platinum selling debut album in the UK. They’ve also flown the flag for British pop music abroad, with 'DNA’ certified gold in Australia, and Top 5 in Japan. In the US they broke the Spice Girls’ record for the highest ever US chart debut by a British girl group, entering the charts at No.4. 2014 will kick off with the girls touring the US with Demi Lovato. ‘Salute’ also saw them once again achieve a second top 5 album in the UK.
In anticipation of the tour, Little Mix have added, “We’re so excited to be preparing for our first arena tour! It’s incredible to think we’ll be playing for so many people every night. We are going to be pulling out all the stops to make sure it’s as unforgettable for our Mixers as it will be for us.”
Little Mix’s new tour follows their hugely successful sold out headline tour in the UK and Ireland earlier this year.
