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.

Girlfriend - - THE MUSIC ISSUE -

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.
