The release of Little Mix's sixth album Confetti is less than two months away, and with that comes the possibility of a tour. But after the cancellation of their summer concerts due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, there's still quite a bit of uncertainty as to when gigs will actually make a return in the UK. So will Little Mix tour the UK in 2021?
In August, the group weren't so sure that a 2021 tour would be able to go ahead. "We hope to be able to tour next year," Jesy Nelson told Metro, "[but] obviously nothing is for sure because of COVID. I think we have to wait and see what happens really — I think everyone is a bit unsure at the moment."
Fast forward to Sep. 17 with an appearance on The One Show, the girls revealed that they are indeed heading back on tour in Spring 2021. "We've really missed performing for you and we can't wait to get back on the road," the group wrote on Insta. "The thought of getting back on stage and seeing your faces means the world to us, we cannot wait!" Little Mix has also partnered with Black Minds Matter UK and Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy, with £1 of every ticket sold being split between the two charities.
