LITTLE MIX These are the glory days
The fire four are headed our way! GF chatted to Jesy, Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jade ahead of their Australian tour.
we’re only halfway through the year and already Little Mix have had a massive one! They kicked off 2017 by joining Ariana Grande to support her on the Dangerous Woman tour in North America. The fab four then won their first ever Brit Award for ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ in the Single Of The Year category, beating the likes of Coldplay and Zayn (that’s gotta be the ultimate revenge, eh Perrie?). They then had another huge hit with ‘No More Sad Songs’ in March, proving this album is all killer, no filler. The babes wrapped up their support act gig in April and stepped straight into the spotlight (where they belong tbh) to headline their own Glory Days tour around Europe. Coz they love their Aussie fans, Leigh-Anne, Jade, Jessy and Perrie are winging their way here in July to perform around the country. We. Can’t. Flippin’. Wait.
WE’RE SO EXCITED TO SEE YOU ON YOUR HEADLINE TOUR. WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE SHOW?
