Little Mix performing their Confetti Tour at The Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on Monday 9th May 2022

Review by Kevin Cooper

The Motorpoint Arena welcomed back Little Mix for the sixth time on Monday night, and once again they did not disappoint. Delighting a packed Arena with their singing and dancing skills, the trio made their final return to the stage before going their separate ways for what they described as a hiatus.

With a huge screen surrounded by stairs, confetti canons exploded and Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall draped in neon feathers made their entrance after being lowered from the ceiling as they blasted through their mega hit, Shout Out To My Ex and encouraged crowd sing alongs from the start.

They have a locker full of brilliant songs at their disposal and more classic cuts swiftly followed with Heartbreak Anthem which saw talented dancers swarm the stage, Break Up Song and Wings which kept the captive audience in the palms of their hands.

Flames and pyrotechnics announced a costume change for a longer set which included pop favourite Women Like Me which was transformed with a rock and roll dance break, and as they showcased just how many hits they have had, Move, Happiness, and No More Sad Songs were all present and correct. Secret Love Song didn’t fail to give the crowd chills and Between Us came close to giving everyone the goose bump factor.

Another costume change saw the trio sitting on thrones surrounded by dancers as Love (Sweet Love), was followed by a Reggaeton Lento remix, Wasabi and Black Magic. With lots of excessive gyrating of the hips and hair flicking, the between song banter really entertained the crowd, who were told that Perrie and Leigh-Anne had become mothers whilst Jade had become a dog mum.

Another costume change and the huge screen displaying the word Sing, they showed off their incredible vocal range which helped Salute’s impact hit even harder. Touch and Confetti finished the main set before encore song Sweet Melody brought the whole whistle stop tour of their hits to a fabulous end.
