Headlines Tour Review – Newcastle City Hall – 7th February 2011

Girl group The Saturdays performed at Newcastle City Hall last night. Emma Kay was there.

IN the words of one of their most famous songs, The Saturdays’ fans Just Can’t Get Enough.

A sell-out crowd packed Newcastle City Hall to see the girl band strut their stuff – and boy did they deliver!

So much so, in fact, the screaming, squealing crowd, made up predominantly of teenage girls, was reluctant to let them go.

Their Headlines tour kicked off just a few days ago, but the five girls – Frankie Sandford, Una Healy, Vanessa White, Mollie King and Rochelle Wiseman – are already well and truly in the swing.

They performed the anthemic Forever is Over as well as a string of their hits including Up, One Shot and, of course, Higher.

In the process, the audience was treated to a dazzling array of costumes with several changes, each outfit smaller than the last from short, leather dresses to hotpants and lots and lots of sequins.

What’s clear from seeing them live is that, although Vanessa is widely regarded as the strongest singer, they each have the vocal talents to lead the group and command centre stage.

As well as their singing, what they bring to the show is the real performance element – a strong sense of showmanship and energy.

Remember, Frankie and Rochelle are already stage veterans having first found fame with S Club Juniors and all five have been playing venues much larger than this, including our own Metro Radio Arena, since 2008.

In fact, this is their third tour and they plan to tour again in December.

It’s clear from start to finish these girls love what they are doing and the audience love them.

Girls Aloud and Sugababes may currently be off the scene but with the Saturdays there to fill the gap, girls, we certainly aren’t Missing You!!!
