Little Mix - Scarborough Open Air Theatre
Graham Clark, Features Writer
It is said that Little Mix are the biggest girl group in the world. Whether that is the case or not they are the only act so far to sell out a concert at this season's Open Air Theatre gigs in Scarborough.
Just as the gates opened the rain accompanied by a thunder storm arrived with vengeance. Thankfully by the time Little Mix arrived on stage the storm had moved into the North Sea.

They are well rehearsed and delivered a tight, polished performance.
Accompanied by 4 dancers they open up their set with Power, a track taken off their last album, Glory Days.
It is not long before the hits follow: Black Magic is a pop gem whilst Salute lets them deliver some energetic choreography.
There is a costume change half way through the gig with their customary boots still being part of their fetching outfits.
The usual spot of audience participation is there, when Little Mix sing a line from one of their hits and then the fans have to respond with the next line.
They cheekily drop in the first line to Scarborough Fair which showed that they were able to improvise when needed.
This leads nicely into their first hit single, Wings which had the fans in the palm of their hands. Touch ended the show but of course the Yorkshire fans wanted more as Nobody Like You and Shout Out To My Ex provided a fine encore to what had been a fantastic gig.
