What a phenomenal concert. From the performance, the outfits and the atmosphere, Little Mix at Newmarket Nights on Friday, June 23, were fantastic.

The foursome was greeted with screams from the crowd. They didn’t even have to sing a single lyric before a rapturous applause descended upon the grandstand.

It was the first of the Newmarket Nights series, and what an opener it was. The concert began with I Got the Power and Black Magic.

I’ve always been something of a Little Mix fan, ever since their X Factor days, and they certainly didn’t disappoint. They performed my favourite track, Salute, as well as other hits No More Sad Songs and Touch, saving Shout Out To My Ex as their encore following cheers from the fans.

The crowd was electric, despite those who had been holding out at the races all day enjoying less than the perfect sunshine that recent weeks have brought.

There wasn’t a single song that didn’t elicit screams from the crowd.

They interacted with the audience brilliantly throughout the show.

I would thoroughly recommend anyone to see Little Mix live, although perhaps in a more conventional setting rather than a racecourse – my only criticism being that, at times, you could see neither the girls on stage nor the screens showing the action. Apart from that, a brilliant night.

Thank you Little Mix.
