LITTLE MIX are never far away from the charts, our TV and radio and at a live venue. Their 2020 tour is selling fast with one of the dates right here in South Wales. They have also been announced as the first act on the Hyde Park British Summertime concert series, which is a really big deal. The likes of Paul Simon, Celine Dion, Take That and Rod Stewart have all played those concerts in the past.
Live, the girls are incredible and always put on a spectacle of a show and we’re sure this year will be bigger than ever. Five albums in and the band are going from strength to strength. Their first came on the back of their X Factor win. DNA went top ten in 2012 and in America made it into the top 5, they love LITTLE MIX in the States too.
It was X Factor which made LITTLE MIX but back in 2011 when they auditioned individually, they almost didn’t make it through on the show at all. As solo performers they failed the first ‘Bootcamp’ challenge. They were allowed another chance to compete when they were placed in two separate ensembles by the judges during the “group bootcamp” stage, with Perrie and Jesy in four-member group Faux Pas and Jade and Leigh-Anne in three-member group Orion.
Once again both groups failed to make it through to the next stage. A later decision by the judge, all we can say is thank heavens for Kelly Rowland who brought two members back from each group and formed a new four piece called recalled two members from each group and formed a new four piece called Rhythmix, sending them through to the judges’ houses.
The rest is history. They made it onto the live shows and were mentored by Tulisa. They had to change their name because Rythmix was used by a Brighton based music charity. They became LITTLE MIX, went on to win the series, becoming the first girl group in the show’s history to even make it past the seventh live shows. Here is that very moment when their victory was announced.
This seems like a great place to take a look at LITTLE MIX over the years and while the image has definitely changed, what they stand for and represent most certainly hasn’t. Their lyrics and attitude is all about female empowerment.
Despite being a hugely successful band, with a massive following all over the world, the girls have retained their own identity and regularly give fans a glimpse into their lives through social media and their website. Even down to what they enjoy cooking (if you’re a fan you’ll know what we mean).
As for the hits, there have been so many of those, it’s difficult to know what to give you to play. So, we looked at the fans favourites and here are the top 5……
But playing live is where they truly shine and when we get to see them in Cardiff we’ll get to see exactly what they been up to since their record breaking breaking, award winning 2019.
The girls told us…….
“Performing live is our favourite thing to do as a band, we love it.”
“Our last Summer tour in 2018 was one of our favourites ever, so we can’t wait for some more brilliant outdoor shows next year. We want everyone to come party with us in the sunshine!”
If the groups last visit to Cardiff is anything to go by the fans will be out in force ready to party with them….
LITTLE MIX get to Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday 28th June. General tickets are available now. You can get them right here. MIX. The Cardiff date is the only South Wales show of the band’s 21-date summer tour.
