The British girl group — Jesy, Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade — will head back to England, where they’re set to kick off the Salute Tour on May 16, their first headlining arena tour.
“I think with our own tour … we get to have tour outfits and stage production — it’s gonna be, like, a million times more vamped up,” Jesy said during our “Live From MTV” special on Monday. “We are so excited because we’ve worked so hard on our ideas and everything that we want and how we want it to be and the theme.”
And fans lucky enough to attend the show in England in May just might get to enjoy another U.K. band, also on tour. One Direction will launch their worldwide Where We Are Tour in April, and the guys, of course, have some history with Little Mix.
Both groups competed on the U.K. version of “The X Factor,” and ever since, their fanbases have been dying for Little Mix and 1D to join forces and head out on the road together. We asked the girls if that might become a reality soon.
“There was talks about it but it just clashed; we are so busy,” Jesy said of a possible tour with 1D. “And, God, they are really, really busy. But you never know though, but for now, no.”
So it doesn’t seem like we’ll get a co-headlining run from the U.K. chart-toppers, but fans will see a Mixer and a Directioner walk down the aisle, thanks to Perrie and Zayn Malik, who confirmed their engagement in August 2013.
Between their respective tours and albums, the couple haven’t found too much time for planning. But Perrie revealed that she does have one important detail locked down, and it has to do with her bridesmaids’ dresses.
“Definitely not white,” Perrie said, before adding that she actually has “no idea.” “Literally, I haven’t got a clue of what’s going to go on: Planning a tour, planning this, planning that — I haven’t had time really. But I’ll definitely get into it, [and the dresses are] definitely not going to be white.”
