What About Us (Remix) and ‘Gentleman’

Hey all! Just a quick update to say I’m super busy at work and with Uni work right now, if all goes to plan I’ll do a full update tomorrow. But in short – just in case you didn’t know – the girls recorded the music video to the next single yesterday in London!

But before we get too excited by that, we need to get the release of ‘What About Us’ done in the UK (and other global places first) and to make us all more excited they’ve released a remix video:

Also in the VEVO Ask:Reply series (see the latest one under this) Una revealed a new song title, ‘Gentleman’ which is apparently better than All Fired Up ….

Bits and bobs

Hey all! Hope everyone is well! 🙂

Just a couple of news items. Yesterday we fixed an outstanding issue with our gallery and added a bunch of new pictures from recent events, so please make sure you pop over and take a look – if you notice any other issues with the gallery please get in touch 🙂

One for those going to Scarborough, due to ‘scheduling conflicts’ the girls show there is now taking place a day earlier, on FRIDAY 23rd August. If you already have a ticket then your ticket is still valid for the show, if you cannot make it (of course you can, you might bump into us!) then you can go back to where you bought your ticket for a refund. If you still want to go there are tons of tickets over at Ticketmaster so get buying, and we will see you there (Some tickets are in Row A too!!)

The girls are also performing at London’s G-A-Y on the 23rd March, wristbands must be bought to gain entry and are available at the London club for £4.

Back to work

Hey all! Just a quick message to say I’m back from my mini-break. Girls Aloud was pretty amazing, thanks to everyone who asked questions about it on Twitter, hope I answered what I can! If you are going expect a good night 🙂

Not much news to report on the last few days, Mollie has been over in LA overseeing her song being recording with AJ from the Backstreet Boys (as reported previously) – seemingly being produced by The Jam – who have worked on the new material for the new Saturdays album too!

Chasing The Saturdays airs in the UK tonight (but not in America I believe, the next episode is due there on 3rd March) so make sure you tune into E! at 10pm to catch it!

Also – in US news – the US Billboard Charts now count youtube views towards their singles chart. So if you are watching ‘What About Us’ on youtube PLEASE make sure you watch it on their official VEVO site, and not someone who has just downloaded it and reuploaded it, as only official youtube/vevo plays count to the charts. So if you are bored this afternoon give it a spin on VEVO 🙂

The only news item I could find that is worthy of posting was an interview the girls did with Orange of which the most exciting part (for me is)

What will 2013 hold for you and can we expect a new UK tour at some point? Fingers crossed…

We definitely hope to be going out on tour again this year, so stay tuned about that. We’re now finishing up our album which comes out later this year, plus we’re planning some trips to brand new territories like Germany and Australia which is all really exciting. It’s going to be a big year for us Sats.

Fingers crossed for a tour this year then. We have our tickets for Scarborough in August, so hopefully will see a few of you there! 🙂

Mollie, Backstreet Boys and more!

Hey all! Sorry for the lack of updates recently, those who follow us on Twitter @TheSatsCoUk will know that its half-term week in the UK so I’m having a few days rest from websites and having a good time. I’m off to the Girls Aloud concert in Newcastle tomorrow (Opening night) so that will be a good one!

I’ve been keeping a look out for news, apart from the girls attending several days at London Fashion Week over the last few days its been pretty quiet, as they have been using Chasing The Saturdays to do the promo work for them I think!

TWO Episodes of Chasing The Saturdays aired over the weekend in the US, if you run over to the girls official youtube channel you can catch the usual after-show talk about the shows.

In breaking news last night, our very own Mollie is flying out to LA today to hit the recording studio with the Backstreet Boys – but not as a singer – they have apparently chosen a song that she has written for their forthcoming – 20th Year – album. As most Sats fans know, Mollie is a 90s pop child (Like myself, and many other teamsats) and grew up listening to Backstreet Boys, Britney etc. when pop had its massive moment in the late 90s so this must be huge for Mollie – so she’s rushing out there to meet the guys as they record her track!

Rather than sit here and update all the LFW news here are many articles on the girls attending all the various shows all over the Internet, and I’m sure many of you have already read them! The last and most recent one is from the DailyMail, but as per usual its less reporting more visual candy but not sure how much you can report ‘the girls attended, they wore this, and this is what they wore’ I’m sure we will have a gallery update soon 🙂

The radio station 98FM is running a competition for YOUR group to support The Saturdays at their upcoming show. Make sure you check that out if you are a budding musician.

I’m back from holiday on Saturday evening. If you are on half term have a good one and make sure you follow us on Twitter and Facebook to get the latest breaking news!


Awesome, the girls are seemingly giving us a taste of summer right now. I presume they will only be performing as a 4 piece, but our calls are being answered team sats! The girls have confirmed another summer show this morning, at the Scarbrough Open Air Theatre on August 24th. So right now the girls are performing at:

– Bord Gáis Energy Theatre – Dublin, Ireland 28th March 2013
– Grand National Opening Day – Aintree, Liverpool 4th April 2013
– Newmarket Racecourse –  Newmarket, Suffolk Saturday 8th June 2013
– Scarborough Open Air Theatre – Scarborough, North Yorkshire Saturday 24th August 2013

We will no doubt be at a couple of these (and more if they add more!) so hopefully will see some of you there! These events the girls are named headliners or co-headliners so will put on a fuller show (60mins+) rather than just 3 or 4 songs and leave 🙂

Festivals across the summer months are still being announced, including major radio events such as the Summertime Ball. Hopefully the girls will be making an apperance at some of these too! 🙂

Frankie at the Cambridge Satchel Company Store Opening

Seems Frankie and Wayne (maybe he wanted a man-bag) attended the launch of the first ever store for the Cambridge Satchel Company last night. Doesn’t seem too much to report on, but a few pictures of Frankie I’ve added below.

It’s all gone a little quiet again hasn’t it? Apart from a few concerts being announced for the summer (and and the end of this month) hopefully this is the relative calm before the UK promo steps up a notch! Remember US/Canad a fans can buy ‘What About Us’ NOW, UK fans can pre-order it from iTunes.

Una gets angry! Plus dublin gig.

Firstly the girls are playing a special concert in Dublin! They are playing a one-off show at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin, Ireland on March 28, to mark the venue’s 1-year anniversary! All proceeds from the show will go to the society of St Vincent De Paul.

Pre-sale tickets are available now to Bord Gáis Energy Reward Club members, and will be on sale to the public this Friday at 9am from Ticketmaster.

In other news, Una Healy insists she rarely rows with husband Ben Foden, but she does get cross about his messy ways.

Una Healy shouts at her husband when he leaves his dirty clothes on the floor.

The Saturdays singer is married to England rugby player Ben Foden and she insists his most annoying habit is when he uses the floor of their house as a laundry bin.

She moaned: ”We don’t have massive arguments any more. But I get annoyed when I see clothes of his on the floor or he hasn’t made the bed. If you don’t know what I’m like, you might think I’m being aggressive, but he just laughs at me now.”

Una – who has an 11-month-old daughter, Aoife, with Ben – likes to keep her spouse organised so she makes him lists of chores to do when she goes out, however, he doesn’t always follow her instructions.

She told Britain’s OK! magazine: ”I make lists. I say, ‘When I get back you must make sure the bins are left out, because you know they’re only collected every two weeks.’ I come back and the bin is overflowing. The Christmas tree is still in the back, it’s an eyesore.

”I can’t relax until after my lists are done!”

Ben is definitely not a fan of his wife’s lists of jobs but he appreciates her busy demeanour is a good balance to his laid back attitude to life.

He said: ”I give her a bit of grief because she’s so stressed about everything. We’ll have a day off but before we relax she wants to do everything off her mental list. She’s very organised and motivated, whereas I’m lazy and messy! Chalk and cheese.”

It’s Tuesday, its February it only means one thing, its Pancake day! It’s time to admit how many pancakes you will eat tonight, I shall probably have 2 (or 3) depending on how I feel.
It’s also my first anniversary today, so I’ll use the site to say thank you to those members of TeamSats who have supported me and Rosie since day 1 🙂 We do appreciate all your support.

If you are looking at this through blurry eyes, I do have something that will easily wake you up and instantly make you feel better. Here is our lovely Una, grabbing her guitar and giving us an acoustic (solo) performance of Somebody Else’s Life – how amazing is that?!

The DailyMail (who else) have given their review of Chasing The Saturdays (Episode 4) –  I do find it a little funny that the UK media are just going with the US pacing of the show and not the UK one .. I guess there is a chance the final episode will air near each other but for now, there is a 2 week difference.

OK Magazine are running an ‘exclusive’ on how the love-king helped keep Una and Ben’s proposal a surprise:

Una Healy and Ben Foden have revealed how Mollie King helped plan his surprise proposal and their heartbreak at being away from daughter Aoife Belle.

Speaking exclusively to OK! Magazine, the rugby hunk confessed he ‘conspired’ with The Saturdays to make his secret engagement party as special as possible.
He said: “I’d conspired with Mollie [King]. I’d got the the other girls to wait at my house along with friends and family and it was a complete surprise.”
The romantic couple – who will be celebrating their daughter’s first birthday next month – also opened up about balancing their family life with their work commitments.
Una admitted she was brought to tears the first time she had to leave little Aoife behind, because of her hectic US schedule with her bandmates.
“The first time I’d been apart from her was for a week in New York and I was so down. But we got through it. Absence makes the heart grow fonder,” she added.
