Why do The Saturdays Tours start in Scotland?

Thursday’s question of the day is ‘Why do The Saturdays always start their tours in Scotland?’

The Scottish Daily Record has the answer!

Rochelle has revealed one of the reasons so many of The Saturdays tours start in Glasgow – the shopping. With the girls again kicking off a national tour in Scotland’s biggest city, the pop princess confessed premium shopping precinct Buchanan Street has become part of her pre-show ritual. And while the Style Mile may very well be an appropriate place for one of the hottest groups around, Rochelle reckons Glasgow has a lot more going for it than just the boutiques.

She said: “I’m loving the fact we’re starting the tour in Glasgow. It’s something we always try and do. It’s a great city and they always love to make a serious noise. The way that they go crazy, you don’t need to ask them twice. We do quite a lot of shopping in Glasgow. It’s part of the pre-show ritual. It’s not supposed to be, but it’s always what ends up happening!”

The Saturdays are hitting Glasgow in support of their greatest hits album, set for release in August. Fans needn’t worry though. The girl band say they’ve far from run their course, with plans to get into the studio later in 2014 for their fifth studio album. Aimed at being a celebration of their six years together, it features 13 top 10 singles, plus three new tracks.

Rochelle explained: “We’re on our 18th single so we thought why not now, we want to make sure it all fits on one CD.

“Making it brought on loads of fond memories, it’s mad when you look back at old videos and stuff.

“Looking back my favourite moment to date was the first number one. We didn’t get it until our 14th single so it was a long time coming, loads of times we were pipped to the post at the last moment.”

But with the birth of their daughter, Alaia-Mai last May, does she find it tough being in the band?

“Not at all, other than the obvious demands on time. We’re lucky that we both understand what comes of the industry – if anything it’s a plus. Having a daughter changed my outlook on everything, she’s my number one. There are a lot of working mothers in the world and I think I just have a slightly different job to everyone else. I’m just lucky I can bring my daughter with me.”

Luckily for Rochelle, Buchanan Street does boast plenty of high-end infant fashion. The Saturdays play Clyde Auditorium Sunday, September 7.

Saturdays want to take Subo Shopping

By Chris Sweeney

SEXY girlband The Saturdays want to give Susan Boyle a makeover – and last night offered to take her SHOPPING.

The chart-topping girls – who were at Glasgow’s Oran Mor venue – are dying to glam up the West Lothian star.

They were performing at Galaxy FM’s glitzy first birthday party.

They joined a star-studded line-up which included Taio Cruz, Pixie Lott and Mobo winners N-Dubz.

But the girls – who belted out hits I Just Can’t Get Enough and Issues – were more concerned about SuBo.

Saturdays’ babe Vanessa White, 20, said: “Susan could definitely hang out with us, we’d love to take her shopping. I know she’s back in Scotland after being in America, so I was hoping she’d call us to take her out.”

Taio, 24, got the party started with a short set which included new single No Other One.

He said: “I wish I could sing a lot more songs as this is a great party but they’re making me go.”

Hip hop stars N-Dubz made the bash after playing the city’s SECC, even though rapper Fazer had a cold. The 22-year-old said: “There is no alcohol for me tonight – that would mess me up even more.

“It’s a big enough challenge playing two gigs but I’ve taken some paracetamol.”

Fazer – and bandmates Tulisa and Dappy – have a soft spot for the city, after bagging two Mobos in September.

He added: “To win Best Album at the Mobos was special. We worked so hard and then Best Act was the icing on the cake with a cherry – and to do that in Glasgow means we’ll always remember the city.”

Meanwhile, Pixie Lott jetted into the bash from Los Angeles and sparkled in silver hot-pants.

The 18-year-old performed three songs – including Mama Do – and was flanked by a pair of gorgeous dancers.
