Little Mix Tour Hits Liverpool; Are They The UK's Next Pop Queens? (Pictures)04 February 2013
There was months of waiting, but the good ship Little Mix has been set with mast at full sail since the end of last year, with the 2011 UK X Factor winners releasing their debut album and embarking on a tour of the country. In the ever accelerated world of the music industry, there's an argument to say that waiting for almost a year after winning the competition to release your debut album these days is leaving it too long; however the girl group have been keen to prove those dissenters wrong, and they seemed on fine form as they took on Liverpool's Echo Arena last night (Februry 3, 2013).
The group have been touring throughout January, but have concerts going right up until the end of the month as they seek to reach every corner of the UK. After a promising 2012, which saw their debut LP DNA reach number three in the UK album charts, as well as two number one singles and a number three, 2013 didn't get off quite as well as hoped, with 'Change Your Life' flopping somewhat at number 31 in the singles charts. Nervertheless, they didn't look like they were ready to let that get them down, with an energetic performance prompting local Liverpool paper the Liverpool Echo to exclaim "It’s a solid launchpad for what looks set to be a long reign as our latest queens of pop" in a 9/10 review.
