Little Mix announce Manchester AO Arena dates on new 2021 tour


Global pop superstars Little Mix have announced a major new UK and Ireland tour for 2021 which will culminate with two huge concerts at the newly-named AO Arena in Manchester.

The chart-topping girl band will head out on the road for their new Confetti tour, fresh from their eagerly-anticipated new BBC talent show Little Mix The Search which begins airing this autumn and aims to find a new band to support them on their 2021 tour.

The shows will see Little Mix perform songs from their brand new upcoming album Confetti, due for release on 6th November, like Holiday and Break Up Song, alongside some of their greatest hits including Touch, Woman Like Me, Black Magic and Shout Out To My Ex.

The huge news is among the first big gigs to be announced by the newly-named AO Arena in Manchester, and signals optimism of a return to live concerts and events in 2021 amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Little Mix – aka Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall – have established themselves as the world’s biggest girl band – they have sold over 50 million records worldwide, collected over 17 million Spotify listeners, received over 3 billion YouTube views, and collated 12 billion streams worldwide.
