The Saturdays kick of Christmas

Hey all! It’s that time of the week again, no not another update, just Monday!

This weekend The Saturdays kicked off Christmas in style as they performed at not just one, but two, Christmas shows. The weekend kicked off in style in Birmingham at the LG Arena, for Free Radio Live 2013, and finished off at the First Direct Arena in Leeds for Radio Aire’s Xmas Live!

We attended the show in Birmingham, the girls (like in Leeds) where on second-to-last and performed 4 songs, All Fired Up, Higher, Disco Love and What About Us. The Free Radio show was really good and also had performances from Little Mix, The Vamps, Union J and headlined by Mr Olly Murs who was excellent as always.

I know a few of you had popped down to Birmingham or Leeds to catch the girls, and I hope you had an as great time as we did! I’ve added a few pictures below of the girls in Birmingham. If you pop over to our Twitter account, or go directly to our Instagram account, I added a few videos of the girls performing in Birmingham there!

Mollie hosts The Show: TEN at the Bullring

This one we attended! It was an awesome day out had by all, Mollie did a great job hosting and everyone loved the performance!

It’s been a month of celebrations at Bullring with the iconic centre along with a number of shops, including Selfridges, celebrating their 10th anniversary in the city.

On  4th September Bullring turned ten and revealed an exciting month of activity and installations including the bull’s tenth outfit and a chocolate model of the We Are So City model created by Cadbury World. Also unveiled was the TENder Moments installation on St Martin’s Walk where customers could attach their birthday messages for Bullring onto a padlock.

It was also announced that girl band The Saturdays would be performing at the centre’s birthday finale following The Show: Ten presented by Mollie King. On Saturday evening thousands of shoppers packed into Bullring to catch a glimpse of the band as they performed a four song set before being surprised by a sprinkling of glitter and confetti as the performance came to a close.

Tim Walley, General Manager at Bullring, commented: “It’s been a fantastic month of celebrations, which have seen the residents of Birmingham really get into the celebratory spirit whether it be to add a padlock to the TENder Moments installation or wish us a happy birthday on Twitter.

“The Show: Ten and the performance by The Saturdays this weekend was a great way to end our month of celebrations especially as our final surprise in the form of a glitter and confetti explosion was revealed.”


#BullringTEN

Tomorrow our very own Mollie will be hosting FIVE fashion shows at Birmingham’s Bullring Shopping Centre as part of the centres 10th anniversary celebration. As part of the finale the rest of the girls will be joining Mollie on stage after 7pm for a special performance!

We are in attendance at the 7pm show thanks to the generosity of the bullring, and we will be tweeting all day from the event! If you are also attending, please tweet us, and tweet events using the #BullringTEN hashtag. We will love to see you down there joining in with the fun at the shopping centre!

If you are going down and don’t have tickets for any of Mollie’s shows (11am, 1pm, 3pm, 5pm & 7pm) we advise you to read up on what is happening on the Bullring website.

They are very clear on what you should, and shouldn’t expect from the event. What is clear that if you don’t have tickets for the 7pm show – which includes a performance – you are not allowed to ‘queue’ for the event until AFTER the 5pm show has ended. It also says that the shopping centre have the right to close of areas if there are too many people around. It’s also good to mention that it makes it very clear that meeting Mollie or the girls isn’t something to expect and that any gifts you have for the girls should be left at the Bullring Management Office who will pass them on.

The key thing here to remember is that the bullring is a shopping centre, and this is an event taking place at at shopping centre, this isn’t a concert arena, so should be respected as one.

I know many people are going down with potentially the first task is to meet Mollie and the rest of the girls and everything else is secondary, but I don’t think the bullring site could be any clearer regarding this, so if you are travelling a long distance and don’t meet the girls, you can’t say you haven’t been forewarned!

Not to forget Vanessa is also hosting a fashion show, she will be around an hour away (on a train) at the HighCross Shopping Centre in Leicester. So make sure you pop down there and give Vanessa your support too. Sadly we can’t attend this one now due to travelling arrangements and having to be seated for the 7pm show prior to the start, but if you are going please tweet us and we will RT you 🙂

Fusion Festival

fusion-festival-birmingham-logo-2

Our girls have been added to a new summer festival taking place over the weekend of August 31st-September 1st at Cofton Park, Birmingham.

Our girls are set to perform on the Sunday – 1st September – which is due to be headlined by Ne-Yo. Other acts on the Sunday include The Wanted, Conor Maynard, Wretch 32 and James Arthur. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am, costing between £35-£55 for a day ticket and £90-95 for a weekend ticket to take in both days.

Also our own Una has become a online blogger for Hello Magazine, of which her first blog will be online this Friday 🙂

The girls finally fly over to mainland Europe today, to the traditional stop of Germany. Hopefully the girls can make a name for theirselves in Germany and then (usually) that success flows over the borders to other places such as Belgium, Holland, Spain, Italy etc. then they will become a known name in Europe, so *fingers crossed* any new UK Tour will become a fully-fledged European one! 🙂

We will bring you all the updates from across Europe as we find it, but if you live in Germany and notice we miss something please send it over to us via e-mail (thesatscouk@gmail.com) or via our twitter @TheSatsCoUk and we will post it on the site 🙂


News Pieces – 17th September 2012

Firstly sorry for the lack of updates recently, juggling the site, University work and life can get a bit taxing at times and as you can probably understand the website comes last in that list of three so has suffered a bit recently, but here’s an update to say everything is good and well!

Tomorrow see’s my birthday .. so all gifts, cards, presents are accepted and trying to steal the limelight from that 😉 our girls are in Birmingham – on the rare occasion that I’m seemingly not there – signing copies of their new calendar! So if you are in the area make sure you pop along and mention that it’s my birthday – they should know who I am 😉 … then again …

The girls are back in the UK for a bit, catching up with friends and family, then they head back over to the US to continue to get their name out there. Still no real news when we will hear the single properly, and if we are going to have to wait until November (or so) until it appears in the UK (thinking of a early January release here ..)

Those who applied to help the site with US news, I’ve not forgotten, contact should be made at some point this week! Just been very very busy recently.

I’ll update the site soon with the latest bits and pieces, and expecting a few presents tomorrow! 😉
