Opening with one of their recent chart topping hits Touch, Little Mix got everyone at the Sussex Cricket ground on their feet jumping and screaming as the ITV X-Factor 2011 winners started the hour and a half set.
The cricket ground was fully-packed with youngsters and parents waiting to see Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, take to the stage in their first stadium tour,
Having been performing for more than seven years, Little Mix’s songs have moved with the times - from more traditional pop music to high-energy dance tracks.
Their set list combined a mix of older and new songs so the younger fans and the most die-hard followers of the four girl group were dancing throughout the night.
Before the girls took to the stage though they paid homage to their humble beginnings with X Factor 2017 winners Rak-Su opening for them, with the Watford-based boys bringing their Latino-style music to the stage.
Then the moment that thousands had been waiting for. Little Mix burst through the stage with opener Touch before moving into Reggaeton Lento, How Ya Doin’, Love Me Like You and Hair.
With each song came a pin-point dance routine with back-up dancers, accompanying videos, lighting and graphics.
The hits came one after another with no time for the crowd to relax with No More Sad Songs, Wings and Change Your Life coming next.
Then the girls went back to the start of their career with Move, Black Magic and Salute before ramping up the crowd even further with Shout Out To My Ex.
The group left the stage to the sound of thousands of fans screaming and applauding before returning for an encore of Secret Love Song and Power.
Last year’s performance saw thousands turn Earlham Park into a giant party and on Saturday, July 21, they will be doing it again.
Little Mix’s Summer Hills Tour is a show you would be crazy to miss.
