Little Mix Announces Livestream of Last Show on Tour Before Hiatus
British girl group Little Mix, who got their start after winning The X Factor, recently announced a livestream of their last concert before taking a break to pursue solo projects. The group, which originally had four members, is down to three after Jesy Nelson left in 2020.
Little Mix to Livestream Last Show on Tour
The final show of Little Mix’s Confetti Tour will take place May 14 at London’s O2 Arena. This will be the group’s last show before they take a break from performing together. The full show will be broadcast live from London for fans to watch.
“We wanted to live stream the last show of the tour so that all of our fans around the world have a chance to watch live and be a part of the show with us,” group member Jade Thirlwall said in a press release. “It’s so important to us that everyone can share this moment.”
The performance will take place on Saturday, May 14, at 8pm BST / 9pm CEST / 3pm EDT. On-demand replays of the show will be available for 48 hours. Tickets are on sale now, along with merchandise and the opportunity to donate to Child Poverty Action Group and Choose Love.
The show will also be simulcast in select cinemas, with encore screenings on Sunday, May 15. The concert will be screened in multiple locations in the UK, Ireland, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
Why Is Little Mix Taking a Break?
In December, Little Mix announced that they would be taking a break from performing as a group after their tour. Last year marked 10 years since they won The X Factor, as they released a greatest hits album called Between Us. They emphasized that they’re not breaking up.
“It’s been 10 amazing years, a wonderful non-stop adventure, and we feel the time is right to take a break so we can recharge and work on some other projects,” the group wrote on social media. “We can’t thank you enough for your love and never-ending support since the beginning. We love you all SO much.”
Two of the three members (Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock) are now mothers, so it makes sense that they might want to take some time off to spend with their families. However, some fans are worried that this will be a repeat of what happened with One Direction.
The boy band said they were taking a hiatus in 2015, shortly after Zayn left. They haven’t gotten back together since, as the members have gone on to pursue solo music. We’ll see if the same things happens with Little Mix.
