After attending the Get Weird Tour  last year, I was beyond excited to see Little Mix perform once again at their Glory Days Tour  with a new album. I was completely surprised with their show last year as their energy and commitment on stage was pleasantly unexpected. Knowing that the four girls always bring it, I could not wait to see what they have cooked up for their latest tour.

Walking into the arena just a few minutes before the band were expected to go on stage, the atmosphere was electrifying. The mosh pit was full of eager fans all waiting patiently for the arena lights to dim. All the people who had seats were focused on the stage as well. As the female to male ratio was quite obvious as Little Mix are greatly known for their dedicated female fans, it was refreshing to see a few more males at this tour compared to last years. As I got to my seat, I was observing my surroundings and was exposed to flashing bunny ears everyone as their merchandise seemed to be a big hit. Within moments, the arena turned pitch black and the curtain on stage dropped.

A massive screen covered the stage and visuals showing the band members had the arena screaming. The suspense of the music created a lead up to the opening song as each girl strutted on stage with flair and attitude. With such a thrilling build up, Perrie Edwards finally belted out the first line to their song Power and the four girls were ready to rock it. Each band member was wearing something different but there was a consistent theme with colours and patterns making them look like a power group. As the beat dropped after the first chorus on Power, the girls absolutely blew me away already, as their dance moves were insane. They had four male back up dancers that complemented the girls dancing abilities perfectly. Along with killer moves, their vocals could not have been any sharper which was surprising as their dance moves were quite extreme.

After the first song, the girls took time to greet the wild crowd and fans were screaming at the top of their lungs. The atmosphere continued to be exhilarating as the band had already stole the show one song in. The concert then continued as the girls sang past hits Black Magic and Salute and the crowd sang along with each word. The videos on the screen switched between new music videos for each song specifically made for the tour, as well as live footage of the girls on stage. You could see each girl close up and they all looked astonishing.

The girls then performed tracks Down & Dirty and F.U. from their latest album which was exciting to watch as I haven’t seen them sing it live before. I continued to be in disbelief of their stamina and vocal ability on stage as their dancing was so intense. Their presence on stage was so captivating that it was difficult to look away just to get my phone out to film a Snapchat video. They continued the show with tracks Hair and Your Love and the sass was in full swing.

Before the girls sang their hit ballad Secret Love Song, Jade Thirlwall explained to the audience that the song is extremely special to them as it has a massive following from their LGBT fans. She was inspiring their fans to be true to themselves and never change who they are. As they then sang the track, I got goose bumps all over my body as their vocals were technically flawless and so raw. It was such a special moment in the show as every person in the arena was truly mesmerised. The girls then picked the mood back up with newer hits No More Sad Songs and You Gotta Not and the crowd was continuing to enjoy themselves through the group’s ongoing vitality.

As the show was coming to a close, Leigh-Anne Pinnock teased the crowd with the groups first single Wings and the arena was going crazy. As the girls then sang their first song ever, the video playing on the screen made me feel proud as it made me realize how far the girls have come since the beginning of their careers. Jesy Nelson then played a game with the audience as she chose past songs How Ya Doin’? and Mr Loverboy and wanted to hear the whole arena sing the chorus of the songs together. The girls then finished their show with a bang as they performed one of their latest hits Touch. As the arena went pitch black once again, the girls came out one last time to do an encore to their lead single of the Glory Days album Shout Out to My Ex. It was truly the perfect ending for the show as it wrapped up the concert with their most anticipated song for the show.

Leaving the concert, I felt myself become a stronger fan of Little Mix. Although I already call myself a big fan, the girls just continue to impress me each time and I become more and more obsessed with their ability to slay the way they do. Apart from their insanely sharp vocals and vigorous dance moves, the bands passion to put on a great show for their fans is undeniable and they weren’t lacking in any departments. The four girls together truly are explosive and I would recommend their show to anyone who wants to see something magical.
