NEWS: The Saturdays Announce UK Tour In February

Britain’s favourite girl group, The Saturdays, have announced a massive 17 date UK tour for February 2011. Una Healy, Frankie Sandford, Rochelle Wiseman, Mollie King and Vanessa White are experts on the live circuit having performed to thousands last year on their sold out 2009 tour and have since dazzled fans at festivals across the country. Rochelle says:

‘We couldn’t be more excited for the ‘Headlines’ tour. Performing live is absolutely our favourite part of being in The Saturdays, and we can’t wait to see all our fans up and down the country!’

The Saturdays new album ‘Headlines!’ released through Fascination Records, went straight into the UK albums chart at number 3 upon release, following the smash hit single ‘Missing You’, the UK’s current number 1 airplay record.

‘Headlines!’ is an eight-track album that includes a handful of sparkling new songs – plus Ego and their number two smash from last year, Forever Is Over. The new album is the result of studio sessions that took place during Ego’s four-month chart reign at the start of the year.

Since they debuted in 2007 the girls have sold nearly 2 million records and racked up a very impressive seven top ten singles. They have fronted a major campaign as the face of Impulse and are currently starring in ‘The Saturdays: 24/7’ – a prime-time behind-the scenes documentary for ITV2.

ALBUM REVIEW: The Saturdays “Headlines!”

Record Label: Polydor
Release Date: 16.08.2010

With two Top 10 albums to their name, The Saturdays are back with their sooner than anticipated, and in my opinion their best to date, third album “Headlines!”. Although the album only contains eight tracks, two of which have already been released as singles, it is very clear that the fivesome have gone for quality rather than quantity.

The album opens with “Missing You”, which happens to be their new single (out at the start of August). Once you’ve listened to this track, you certainly have a feel for what the rest of the album has in store. “Missing You” takes on current music trends with its techno synths mixed with auto tuned voices, however it is not overly produced so we can still hear the talented voices that make up The Saturdays, which makes a nice difference to some of the other acts out there at the moment.

Thankfully the rest of the album follows suit. Tracks such as “Higher” and “Puppet” offer the listener a more mature sound with driving beats and showcase the way in which their music has evolved with group, yet still maintain the all important The Saturdays signature.

“Karma” seems to be the odd one out, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, I feel it’s quite possibly the strongest track on “Headlines!” with its almost Katy Perry vibe. With their voices sounding the strongest they ever have, “Karma” proves a great sound for the girls. I only wish more of the album had this kind of style to it.

Even though “Headlines!” contains two tracks from the last album, they (“Ego” and “Forever Is Over”) actually fit better on “Headlines!” than they ever did on “Wordshaker”. The Saturdays have managed to created a brief but fantastic little gem. “Headlines!” is a must listen for this summer.

Special Guest Appearance from the legendary Bruce Forsyth

Following an already incredible line up of talent announced for September 12th 2010 for the biggest event of the year, more top stars have been added to the bill of the Heroes Concert in aid of Help for Heroes at Twickenham Stadium on September 12th.

Showcasing the cream of the nation’s entertainment industry, names as diverse as Robbie Williams, Jason Manford, Plan B, Jack Dee, The Saturdays and James Blunt will now also be joined by more stars from the music world – classical crossover superstar Katherine Jenkins, pop beauty Alesha Dixon, latin sensation Enrique Iglesias and the UK’s latest Number 1 boyband The Wanted.

Welsh star Katherine Jenkins says: “I’m really proud to be a part of what is going to be the most amazing day in honour of our troops. The troops have always been very close to my heart having visited them overseas many times. It’s fantastic that so many artists are coming together to raise awareness and show support of all that they do.”

Alesha Dixon says: “I’m really excited and privileged to be playing the concert, firstly and foremost because it’s for such an amazing cause but also because there are so many other amazing acts on the bill. Our troops have been through so much for us and to give just a little bit back is a real honour.”

The Wanted add: “It’s an absolute pleasure for us to be taking part in this show. Our service men and women do a superb job and if we can help in any way then that’s what we’ll do. Help for Heroes is a cracking charity and we’re so honoured to be asked to perform.” 

Due to phenomenal demand, organisers have acquired special permission for Twickenham Stadium to hold an extra 5,000 fans and troops, taking the concert capacity up to 60,000 for the very first time.

The show will be hosted by the cream of the UK’s comedy talent – John Bishop, Kevin Bridges, Jack Dee, Rhod Gilbert, Peter Kay, Jason Manford and Michael McIntyre have all pledged their support.

All proceeds go straight to Help for Heroes to raise money to help fund further rehabilitation centres around the country.

The spectacular event will be broadcast on BBC One and around the world to military bases through British Forces Broadcasting (BFBS).

Bryn Parry, CEO Help for Heroes

“Help for Heroes is all about ordinary people doing their bit to support the men and women of our Armed Forces. We feel helpless when we hear about our young men and women being wounded and want to do what we can; with Help for Heroes we can make a difference. Over the last three years, hundreds of thousands have joined us in doing their bit and millions have been raised to improve the quality of life for some wonderfully brave people.

This concert is a fantastic example of a nation doing its bit for ‘the blokes’;

I am particularly grateful to all the acts and the organisers for their support and to Hesco Bastion, our lead sponsor. Music and humour can reach and lift those in the darkest of places, making life worth living and helping in recovery. Our boys and girls, both those operating in the remote patrol bases and those recovering from life changing injuries, will hear this concert and know that they are in the forefront of our minds. They are not forgotten, wherever they are.”

Richard Knight, Stadium Director for the Rugby Football Union

“It’s a privilege to be asked to host such an amazing day of entertainment for such a fantastic cause. We have a long history of supporting Help for Heroes starting with our charity game here at the stadium in 2008, which raised over £1.5 million for the charity. The chance to be a part of such a landmark concert is an honour and a testament to the role Twickenham Stadium now plays as an iconic concert venue. The pitch that has been graced by legends of rugby will now be graced by legends of music and comedy. A fitting tribute for our heroic armed forces.”

VIDEO: The Saturdays “Baby”

Girl groups often get derided for just being pretty faces without any talent. Since their launch a couple of years ago, The Saturdays have gone from strength to strength without the usual vocial derision. To further prove their vocal dexterity, The Saturdays sat out in the sun with a couple of guitars and covered Justin Bieber’s “Baby” – even managing to make it so good that you forget the poor original.
