The Saturdays hit Kent! 2

Last night The Saturdays hit the Glow, a new music venue at the Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent. I was very fortunate to have a Meet & Greet with the band too. For those wondering, I chatted to Una and Rochelle – who said she will follow us on Twitter, as the others do, so if you are reading this Rochelle @TheSatsCoUk 🙂 – about this website, Adam also came over to talk about this very site and how the girls and their management enjoy what we do, and that they check it daily, so Hi to everyone at Fascination and the girls!

As for the show, the girls obviously welcomed back Rochelle, but lost Frankie! But still it was a great show, just over an hour long as the girls played all the hits, and they still include the rather epic ‘Get Ready, Get Set’ which gets a thumbs up from me, and Mollie apparently who seemingly loves the song as much as the rest of us!

If you are going to V next week, or Scarborough the week after you are in for a treat for the August headlining shows thats for sure 🙂 I’ve added a few videos from tomorrow below, so please enjoy, including a performance of ‘Chasing Lights’ … no thats not a typo 🙂

Get Ready, Get Set


Mollie, Frankie, Album, Bluewater

Firstly we start with the news that Mollie was out and about in the North East yesterday, presenting a National Lottery Award to the favourite educational project to the Newcastle based Seven Stories.

“Seven Stories is a place that really encourages reading and storytelling,” she said. “A problem with dyslexia is that people can sometimes jump to the conclusion, ‘Oh, she’s thick’. “Some people find spelling difficult and for some people it’s reading. My spelling is fine but for me it is the reading. “They all knew I was dyslexic at school but when we had to read a story out aloud in class I hated it. “Growing up, it definitely put me off reading books but my mum would help me, reading to me and encouraging me to read. It’s so important to have good stories that really appeal to children.”

I’ve added some pictures from the event below 🙂

Frankie has also been out and about, but for different reasons, seems to be giving Mothercare some kind promotion as herself and Wayne have been shopping for baby items (boy of course!) again added some pictures of the glowing Frankie below.

Also Frankie has tweeted today that they are making final decisions about the album, and The Alias tweeted that they are in the studio with the girls, and of course as is The Saturday at the moment threw in another year, this time 1979!! We will be in the swinging 60s soon!!

Also incase you’ve not heard, Rochelle and Marvin are presenting ‘This Morning’ on Friday 23rd August. This is the same day as the girls show in Scarborough (250miles away from London) – Rochelle has said she WILL be at the show, as will we! 🙂

Last, but never least, we hope we will see some of your down at Bluewater THIS SATURDAY, for the girls first show in August. We’ve kindly now got a Meet & Greet with the group, but we would love to see more of you down there too. Tickets are (widely) available for the new venue in Kent, so pop over to Ticketmaster and grab yourselves a ticket now! 🙂 This is a full concert everyone, with support acts too (Only The Young and James Graham)


Summer Time

As most of you are probably aware I work in a school, so August is the main time that I have off for summer holidays! Obviously we are around the time of Disco Love, the 17th single from The Saturdays. But little else is known (remember that the What About Us music video was filmed, what was eventually months before its release) so the same might be happening here.

As you might expect I might not be able to jump on the site, the second any news breaks about the song, so the best way to stay up-to-date with the site news is to follow us on Twitter – we are followed by three of the girls now as Una followed us last week. So join Vanessa, Mollie and Una and follow us on twitter. I will have my phone on me, most of the time, so anything that breaks is likely to be tweeted out before this page is updated.

We will be at two shows this August, we will be at Bluewater, Kent on 10th August, and also in Scarborough, North Yorkshire on 23rd August. We hope to see some of you at these shows, so please say Hi 🙂

The girls are obviously at V too, which is covered on TV, we are on holiday around the time of the V-Festival, so not sure on video availability right now, but we will obviously updated everyone about that nearer the time.

If you are also on holiday in August, have a great time 🙂


Mollie the author and head down to Bluewater!

We start today with more on THAT interview that Mollie has done with Hello Magazine, from the Interview we also learn that Mollie is going to write a book for teenagers … apparently its in the early stages but she is sure it is going to happen.

I’m sure we are all happy that Mollie is doing something else, but should fans start to get worried? Mollie writing books, Una doing more TV presenting, Rochelle and Frankie gave it a go on Sweat The Small Stuff, it’s like the girls are branching out .. I’m sure its nothing but it gives you something to think about whilst the girls are on holiday!

I’ve mentioned it before, and I will mention it again! The girls are playing a few headlining shows next month, the first in Kent in just a months time! The girls are playing the Glow, which is a venue next door to the huge Bluewater Shopping Centre, and the venue is so awesome that even those in the seats in Block G at the rear of the venue are ONLY 50m from the stage – how awesome is that? So seriously head over to ticketmaster and nab yourself a ticket! Be one of only 2,700 fans to catch the girls in a rare headlining show this year!

I mean we are going too, so you might even bump into us down there – now if that’s not a reason to come (If The Saturdays weren’t a big enough draw anyway!) then surely its time to grab a ticket before they all go! 😉


Mollie Models!

Last night our very own Mollie stepped onto the catwalk as she modelled items from the Odabash Macdonald collection at the ME Hotel last night. We’ve added a few of the pictures from the media below, hopefully more will appear and we can add them to our gallery – keep an eye on our twitter feed for the gallery update information 🙂 Mollie was looking great as she modelled the items which no doubt aren’t cheap!

Just to end the item, yesterday a mailer shot was sent out, about the mailer, and various things that could be sold via their official site, there is also a section detailing where you get your Sats fix of news. If we are your first stop for news, then please name us in the ‘other’ section. There is no personal gain for us from you doing so, it would just be nice to be mentioned in the survey if we are your first stop for news/video/pictures anything Saturdays online. We thank you again for the support since 2008! 🙂

Remember that our girls are playing a handful of headlining shows in August, tickets are still available so please get yourselves down there and say hi to us too! The girls are playing Bluewater in Kent on August 10th and Scarborough, North Yorkshire on August 23rd – if you can make it then get your tickets now (You can still get decent ones for Kent if you act now! – There are sadly still over 1500 tickets available too :/) – remember the girls are the only main act so we should get a full hour+ concert, you’ve probably not seen the girls do a full set since the All Fired Up Tour in 2011, so if you can get along please buy those tickets 🙂

Usual reminder that Gentleman is released THIS SUNDAY. If you want the awesome b-side Wildfire you need to PRE-ORDER it now on CD or via iTunes. Last night the Gentleman EP was around number 200 on iTunes (It’s currently around 221), we really need to push it a tad higher before the weekend. So please make sure you pre-order it 🙂


Chasing The Saturdays Cancelled

Those hoping for Season 2 of Chasing The Saturdays, might have to wait longer, its being reported today that the show has been cancelled by E! Reports suggest that viewing figures dropped below 100,000 and that the show was ‘too nice’. Sad news for those who liked the show, where as other people reading this might not be too surprised by this. Hopefully the girls will go back to the USA but try a more traditional route and do tons of promo across radio! (It does work, look at Little Mix, Olly Murs etc. Just needs a bit of planning and travelling!) So fingers crossed for the US fans that they come back soon 🙂

In current news, the girls are currently in France, doing a bit of promo there for ‘What About Us’ if you are a french visitor and have news/media/clips (anything really) then please send to us and we will add it as news (and credit you!) as its impossible for us to keep up to date with EVERYTHING that is going on across the world!

Apparently Frankie doesn’t want to be a ‘fat bride’ – take of that what you will – and the girls performed at the Sony Radio Music Awards the other night, hopefully will get some pictures of of that soon. In baby talk Una has been talking about Ben ‘can’t wait to get me pregnant again’ – maybe we need to rename the Site now to The Saturdays Juniors!

The girls added another summer show yesterday, as they will be playing the Glow at Bluewater shopping centre in Kent on August 10th. We are going down there (as its local to us!) so hopefully see some of you down there. Tickets are on sale now from Ticketmaster, it’s a seated event so if you want a good seat then act now, there’s a good batch still available in the first few rows so be quick and snap those up! (We are in Block A!)
