The world’s biggest girl band Little Mix have announced that 2017 X Factor Winners Rak-Su and Australian sister trio Germein will be joining them on their huge number of UK summer shows throughout July as part of the group’s ‘The Summer Hits Tour 2018’.
Kicking off in Hove on 6th July, the run of 15 live shows ends in Inverness on 29th July. The shows will see Little Mix perform their greatest hits, including ‘Touch’, ‘Shout Out to My Ex’, ‘Black Magic’, ‘Wings’, ‘Move’ and ‘Power’.
Brit and Global award winners Little Mix released The Platinum Edition of their smash hit album ‘Glory Days’ late last year. The original version of the album spent five weeks at the top of the UK Albums Chart surpassing any other album released by a female group this millennium and becoming the longest reigning girl group No.1 album since Spice Girls’ debut 20 years ago.
Rak-Su are a four-piece group from Watford who triumphed in The X Factor, in December 2017. They were not only the first male band to win the competition, but also the first ever X Factor act to have had three of their singles top the UK iTunes chart while being on the show, including original tracks Mona Lisa and I’m Feeling You.
Dimelo, the group’s winners duet with Wyclef Jean and Naughty Boy, debuted at No.2 and has now been certified silver, spending three weeks in the Top 10 of the Official UK chart. The day after being crowned the winner also saw Rak-Su achieve an incredible five songs in the iTunes Top 6 at one point, including Dimelo at No.1.
Australian sisters Germein have the kind of close musical partnership that can only be shared by siblings, and are kicking off 2018 with a brand-new sound. Whether jamming together at their home in the Adelaide Hills, playing alongside Arcade Fire and Catfish & the Bottlemen at the Isle of Wight festival, or opening UK stadium shows for Little Mix, it’s their mutual connection to music that has seen sisters Georgia, Ella and Clara make their mark.
