This is why we can’t wait to see Little Mix in Liverpool this week
4 years ago
The awesome foursome are back in Merseyside this week for two nights at the M&S Bank Arena. Who’s ready for The LM5 Tour?
It’s about to get loud on the waterfront in Liverpool as Little Mix return to the city to perform live at the M&S Bank Arena on 21st and 22nd October 2019.
The LM5 Tour sees the band celebrate their career to date by performing songs from their brand new album LM5, alongside their greatest hits including ‘Touch’, ‘Shout Out to My Ex’, ‘Black Magic’ and ‘Wings’.
Already the girls are exploring Liverpool with Jade being spotted this weekend with her pal Marcus Collins at The Florist.

Alongside smashing out hit after hit – go on admit it, we all love to try and hit the high notes singing ‘Hair’ and ‘Shout Out To My Ex’! Perrie, Jade, Jesy and Leigh-Anne have become strong, female role models in their own right. Jesy released her documentary to high light the shocking online bullying or trolling she received online and while it was difficult to watch – she won the hearts of the nation for her courage.
We’re used to seeing the girls looking slick in their stage and music video ensembles, but earlier this year, Jade and Leigh-Anne got back to basics and joined the Comic Relief team to climb Mount Kilimanjaro! Although Leigh-Anne laughed about her shoes not matching her outfit!
Perrie is pretty much an adopted Scouser now thanks to her budding relationship with LFC’s Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain. The girls are no stranger to the city having headlined LIMF Sunday back in July and a host of other live shows previously.
They’re being supported by the brilliant Mae Muller and New Rules who made their Liverpool gig debut at Fusion, Sefton Park just a few weeks ago.
Our Josh met New Rules backstage at M&S Bank Arena on Monday before they lent their support to Little Mix.
While the girls limber up to put on one hell of a show for the M&S Bank Arena crowds, we’ve got all the info you need to plan a belter night out at The LM5 Tour.

How To Get There

Your nearest Merseyrail station is James Street or Liverpool Central – both are a 5/10 minute walk from the M&S Bank Arena. Plan your journey and check train times here.
Alternatively, Arriva North West operate lots of bus services to Liverpool ONE Bus Station, just a five minute walk from the M&S Bank Arena. Plan your journey, check services and buy tickets here.
Where To Eat
Why not book in for dinner before the gig and make a night of it? Situated on Kings Dock, the M&S Bank Arena is just a stones throw from the bustling Royal Albert Dock – a foodie paradise. Here’s our top 5 restaurants to enjoy a meal before the Little Mix Gig.
1 – The Smuggler’s Cove
If its a heart feast you’re craving – well you’re going to need to carb load for all that dancing – head to The Smuggler’s Cove. This pirate themed restaurant offers big burgers, hanging kebabs, delicious starters of calamari, baked Camembert and lots of gluten free and vegan options too. More info here.
2 – Rosa’s Thai Cafe
Rosa’s Thai Cafe is a must visit for all Thai food fans. New to the Albert Dock in 2019, this authentic, welcoming restaurant has already wont legions of fans. We highly recommend the hand made duck spring rolls, pad Thai and Salmon red curry for a truly memorable meal. Menus and more here.

Gusto at the Albert Dock has just launched a new menu and it looks as good as it tastes! Perfect for a pre-Little Mix dinner. Autumnal, warming dishes such as homemade parsnip soup and warm Puglian bread, Chicken Supreme and three meat, homemade lasagne go hand in hand with delectable desserts such as sticky toffee pudding and chocolate and hazelnut brownies!

Menus and more here.
