Girl group Little Mix are on the biggest girl group tour this decade has to offer so far. From critical acclaim on tour reviews to successfully selling out arenas in an instant, the Get Weird Tour is sure to be remembered as one of the greatest girl group tours of all time.
But a Get Weird tour expansion into North and South America could mean huge for the girls of Little Mix for various reasons. With fan bases big enough to do medium-sized arena gigs, the group are more than capable to do a few shows around the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, etc.
For example, in the U.S. there are many music venues that the girl group could easily sell out. In Texas, capacities like the House of Blues and Warehouse Live in Houston hold a max of up to 1,500 people. In Dallas, the House of Blues holds a capacity of 1,650. Chicago also has a House of Blues that holds a capacity of up to 1,300.
We also can’t forget Florida (Florida Theatre, The Fillmore), New York (PlayStation Theatre), Ohio (House of Blues), etc, etc.
Little Mix are the only U.K. girl group with three consecutive top 15 albums in the U.S. and despite them not doing so much promo the last few months, U.S. fans are still here for them and want their voices to be heard so they can see their idols.
Canada has The Phoenix Concert Theatre (holding up to 1,250) as well as The Sound Academy holding approximately 3,231. Canadian fans have also been wanting to see the lovely talented ladies.
Mexico is also a place with many Little Mix fans lurking around. The grand country has the El Plaza Condesa venue in Mexico City, which holds a capacity of up to 1,900.
Going down to South America, many great venues also exist. In Brazil there is the Vivo Rio venue that holds up to 4,000 people. The Metropolitan (previously known as Citibank Hall) also has a capacity of up to 8,450! But the venue has four different configurations all the way down to a 3,100 capacity. Little Mix have an abundance of Brazilian fans so these theaters would fill up nicely.
What we’re trying to say is that we know the girl band can sell out (or close to) these types of venues. But this isn’t just about selling out. This is about making sure Little Mix receive better recognition as international pop stars and not just U.K. and European stars. They ARE a global smash, but now is the time to develop them even further into the girl band that has been breaking down music industry barriers since day ONE.
And knowing Little Mix, they aren’t going to stop until they rule over the world. The girls will continue to receive massive support as long as they continue to make music and continue to perform live everywhere and not just in certain areas of the world.
Bringing the tour into South and North America can capitalize Little Mix’s growing popularity and introduce many new people to these talented ladies.
