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.


All Fired Up in Glasgow! 1

The @thesaturdays All Fired Up tour moves into Scotland – where it is seemingly a Winter Wonderland – as snow is falling in places!

The girls hit Glasgow this evening as the next stop of the All Fired Up tour hits the SECC. If you are popping along, I’m sure you will have a great night, as this exciting tour starts to sadly come to it close 🙁


Una Spills Royal Wedding Serets

The lovely @unahealy spills the gossip about last weekends Royal Wedding to CapitalFM:

The Saturdays‘ Una managed to blag an invite to Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall’s wedding this weekend as her boyf is rugby mates with Mike.

And Una’s been telling Capitalfm.com all the gossip from the “beautiful day”.

As well as spotting the Queen before she was jetted away on a helicopter, Una got to spend time with a Prince.

“Yeah I was hanging out with Harry as well for a while,” Una told us.

“He was there dancing and getting down with his bad self.”

And with Saturdays engagement rumours always swirling about the girls, was Una lucky enough to catch Zara’s bouquet?

“No she didn’t throw the bouquet,” Una spilled.

“Or I wasn’t informed about it otherwise I would’ve been up the front ready to go!”
