The girl band - who recently scooped their first Brit Award for their single Shout Out To My Ex - have extended their Summer Shout Out tour to include the Norwich date on Sunday, September 3.

Twenty thousand people are set to flock to the Norwich gig and tickets go on sale this Saturday.

Since 2011, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have established themselves as one of British pop’s brightest acts, with hits including Shout Out to My Ex, Black Magic, Hair and Wings.

The Norwich date marks an extension to the band’s 15-date Summer Shout Out tour. They will play venues across the UK earlier in the summer before heading down under to Australia and New Zealand and then returning to the UK for the Earlham Park gig in September.

Peter Taylor, director of promoters Cuffe and Taylor which is organising the gig, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Little Mix to Earlham Park as this is a hugely exciting announcement for Norwich and the surrounding area.

“Little Mix are, without a doubt, one of the UK’s most successful pop acts and the response to their tour this year has been absolutely phenomenal.

“Earlham Park is a venue that is synonymous with fantastic outdoor concerts so we will look forward to what is sure to be an incredible night of live music.”

Last year Little Mix enjoyed number one success with their single Shout Out To My Ex and their album Glory Days also shot straight to number one in the Official Albums Chart. The record spent four weeks in the peak position and was the quickest selling album in the UK charts by a girl group since Destiny’s Child’s Survivor in 2001. It is also the longest-reigning girl group number one album of the millennium.

Ticket prices for Little Mix’s Norwich gig on Sunday, September 3 start at £39.50 and go on sale at 10am on Saturday, March 25 via www.ticketmaster.co.uk

There will also be exclusive Golden Circle tickets available at £55.

Little Mix fans can also sign up for the chance to have access to presale tickets and buy tickets before they go on general sale.

You can register for presale access at https://littlemix.ontouraccess.com/

Registration for presale access closes at midday on Thursday, March 23.

Major music venue

The news that Little Mix will be heading to Earlham Park is yet another major music coup for Norwich which is also looking forward to welcoming pop superstars Take That to Carrow Road for two concerts later this year.

It is also another big boost for the profile of Earlham Park which is fast establishing itself as a key music venue for the city.

In 2015 about 50,000 music fans flocked to the park over two days for Radio 1’s Big Weekend which saw big names such as Taylor Swift, Foo Fighters, Muse and Florence and the Machine among the headline acts. Snoop Dogg also delighted the crowds when he appeared on stage sporting a Norwich City Football Club shirt, meanwhile other acts included Slaves, Jamie T, Charli XCX, George Ezra, Olly Murs, Catfish and the Bottlemen, and Lower Than Atlantis.

And on June 24 this year music stars of the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s are set to perform at the city beauty spot for the first ever Let’s Rock Norwich! Music acts in the line-up for the retro festival include Tony Hadley, Bananarama, Kim Wilde, Nik Kershaw and Go West. Up to 15,000 music fans will be attending the event, with more than half of the Let’s Rock Norwich! tickets already snapped up.
