Mollie won’t go solo, tour ideas

Hey all! Hope you all enjoyed the extra day over the MayDay Bank Holiday weekend! I spent most of the afternoon fighting against major train engineering works, but it was all worth it 🙂

We start today with a snippet from Mollie’s Interview with the Sunday Express Magazine which was out on well Sunday!

She told the Sunday Express magazine: ”I think I would have the guts to go it alone.

”But I just love doing it with the girls because, as much as you can call your mum when you get off stage, you can never explain the exact feeling.

”With the girls when you come off, you’re all like, ‘My God! Did you see that?’ And that’s something you’ll never get if you’re up there on your own.”

I bring this up, mainly because there are other articles doing the rounds that Una wouldn’t mind going solo – take what you will with these stories, it seems for any act as soon as a ‘Greatest Hits’ is announced the media goes into overdrive with split, and solo stories.

Those hoping for a London Summer Show, CapitalFM’s Summer Time Ball takes place on Saturday 21st June at London’s Wembley Stadium – announcements about who is there are imminent – they did perform there last year so .. although sadly there reception wasn’t great 🙁

Talking tours, it will be September before you know it – really, I know we need to get summer out the way first – we are wondering what you would like to see from the tour. I tweeted some suggestions the other week, such as maybe an ‘album medley’ from each release, giving us a taste of more than just the singles. Others would love to see a return to an acoustic set similar from the first tour. Tweet us some of your ideas @TheSatsCoUk.


Una’s Dream Ticket, STB and Little Sats 1

Happy Tuesday all! Hope you are having or had a good day! Today we start with the news that Una is fronting a new TV show on Irish TV.

Uns is set to present a new TV show called ‘Una’s Dream Ticket’, a programme that grants wishes to youths around the country.

Una said;  “I am so excited to have been offered this amazing opportunity and can’t wait to return to Ireland to film it.”

Tyrone Productions will produce the show and are calling on kids aged 16 or under to apply to be part of the series. For more information, email wishes@tyroneproductions.ie The closing date of applications is July 19.

Capital have contacted us saying there is a dedicated portal for The Saturdays performances at the Summertime Ball on their site now, which you can view over at CapitalFM

Apparently the girls want to create ‘The Little Saturdays’ in that case we all hope that Frankie’s forthcoming child is a little girl.

Mollie said: ”If they are all girls then maybe they could form a girl band.”

Frankie joked: ”I always say it’s like our pension, The Little Saturdays. But it’s up to them whether they want to become pop stars. The choice was up to us so it should be the same.”

There should be a gallery update coming to the site this evening, keep an eye on our twitter @TheSatsCoUk for the latest on that


More from the Summertime Ball 1

As there seems to be some demand for this on Twitter, here are my videos of the girls performing at the Summertime Ball. These where recorded by me, so please don’t use them elsewhere, or download them and put them on your own sites etc. Feel free to embed them or just share via youtube 🙂

Summertime Ball!

Yesterday we where at the Summertime Ball, and obviously our girls where also performing. I have their entire show on my camera, but Capital are showing highlights from the event tonight at 7pm on their TV channel, which you can stream online via their website

Capital have also put up the performance of ‘All Fired Up’ on the site, which you can view here. They have also put up the performance of ‘Forever Is Over’

The girls performed All Fired Up, Forever Is Over, Gentleman and What About Us. Not sure why they included ‘Forever Is Over’ and for some reason the girls performance was the only one that seemed to suffer from audio problems at the venue too. Which didn’t really help the 80,000 odd people there watching, but hey can’t do much about technical problems.

The whole day was really good tho, seeing 80,000 people doing Gangnam Style or bobbing around to Taylor Swift was really great 🙂


Summertime Ball 2013

SummerTime2013

Firstly @TheSaturdays have been announced as part of this years CapitalFM Summer Time ball, the event is hosted by Justin Timberlake and also includes performances from Robbie Williams, Olly Murs, Taylor Swift and more. Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning, it takes place at London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday 9th June!

The other dominating news story of the last 24hours is the break up of JLS. I’m sure many of you out there are as surprised as I was about the news, all seems a little suddern and strange, but the lads (and Marvin obviously) all have new plans. It’s always disapointing when a group splits up but its also good to remember the good times too, plus they are still touring at the end of the year!
