News Bits: Mollie, All Fired Up Tour, What About Us

Hey all! Sorry for the lack of updates recently as those who follow us on twitter will know I spent the weekend in Sheffield, whilst catching the Steps Christmas show with my girlfriend. Really good fun pop show, would love to see The Saturdays doing a couple of fun filled smaller shows 🙂

Just a brief roundup as it’s looking increasingly likely that December is going to be a barron month with The Saturdays too, although I do hope that we will see the ‘What About Us’ music video shortly as if they are supposedly releasing it in January … unless of course they mean the song will be premiered in January and we will have to wait until Feb/March to get hold of it!

As you are all aware we are proud of all our efforts to help Mollie pick up the Dyslexia Action It’s Me Choice Award, and thanks to ALL your efforts Mollie picked up over 70% of the entire vote and won the award for the Second Year. This week’s flip takes you behind the scenes of the award show. We send out our huge congratulations to Mollie for winning this award again! A true inspirational dyslexic!

Also if you have been following us on twitter, and not living under a rock, it’s that scary time when we look back at a year ago and go ‘where has the time gone?!’ believe it or not it was a YEAR AGO when the All Fired Up Tour kicked off. We went to 4 nights last year, Bournemouth, Liverpool, Brighton and Wembley. Met a whole bunch of people, and had a good time. But seriously its been a year already?! If you have any tour memories drop us a tweet and we’ll RT you!

Talking about ‘What About Us’ and a huge thanks to everyone who e-mailed us about this. The song has actually entered a US chart. What About Us entered at number 44 (don’t giggle its a great start, they are unknown there remember!) in the US Dance/Club Songs. This chart is based on songs played at clubs in the US – the US chart is a bit more modern than the traditional UK based sales charts. Well done girls!


All Fired Up Tour Plans, Album info

During the girls’ takeover of Capitalfm.com, they revealed that the ‘All Fired Up’ tour is going to be their biggest and best yet.

“It’s an arena tour so there are endless possibilities on the big stage,” said Una.

“We will be having loads of dancers, loads of visuals and we’ll be getting involved in all the creative meetings and making sure we’re styled up as a unit.

“We’ll be introducing out new album on the tour so it’ll be really fresh, but there’ll also be all the old classics so there will be something for all The Saturdays‘ fans.”

As for the new album, Mollie revealed that it’s a particularly special one for the girls. “It’s really personal because we’ve written half of it ourselves,” she said.

“It’s got more dance tracks like ‘Notorious’ and ‘All Fired Up’ but the whole album isn’t like that – we’ve got some classic The Saturday’s tracks on there and we’ve got ballads so there’s a little bit for everybody on it.”

You can now find ALL of the 2010 flips on this page, also I have made a new page which isn’t showing in the media yet for the new flips in 2011. They have called this new ‘era’ (surprisingly) ”Behind The Headlines 2011” and you’ll be able to find all of the videos as they come here on this page – but of course we’ll also be adding news items for them weekly 🙂
