Concert Review: Little Mix

4/5

Little Mix returned to the Metro Radio Arena last weekend with their Glory Days Tour to tens of thousands of adoring fans.

The show was filled from top to bottom with the theme of girl power. From Beyoncé’s Run the World played before the girls came on stage to the interlude before their hit girl power anthem Salute in which text was taken from Emmeline Pankhurst speeches was beamed onto the large screen at the front of the arena. There is no getting away from it: Little Mix wants to empower young girls.

During the show, there were plenty of upbeat hits to enjoy and sing along to, including favourites like Black Magic, Wings and Touch as well as songs from the Glory Days album like FU and No More Sad Songs for the hardcore LM fans.

Perhaps the best part of the night was when the LM girls, Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson, were able to spread their girl power to the whole venue, strutting across a raised walkway and ending up singing Secret Love Song in the very centre of the arena.

Overall, the Glory Days Tour is well worth a ticket, as is any Little Mix show. They dance, they sing, but most of all, they empower.
