The world’s biggest girl group are back! Little Mix have announced a major arena tour for 2017 including a Belfast date at The SSE Arena on 7 & 8th November.
Since 2011 Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have established themselves as one of pop’s brightest acts. Their new album ‘Glory Days’, led by the glorious and cheeky lead single 'Shout Out To My Ex', is only going to make this fact even more glaringly obvious.
Signature hits including ‘Move’, ‘Wings’ and the worldwide smash hit single ‘Black Magic’ have helped the Number One-selling girlband score over half a billion YouTube and Vevo views worldwide, alongside massive tours of the UK & Ireland, Australia, Japan and the US – where their debut album smashed a record the Spice Girls held for almost two decades.
Pop acts like Little Mix don't come along that often. Growing better and bolder with each new album, their songs are personality-packed, carefree when they need to be and emotive at just the right moments. Hold on tight, things are about to go properly interstellar.
