A few weeks ago, I was invited to see Little Mix live with Leeds First Direct Arena and it can safely go down as one of my favourite blog opportunities yet tbh. In the last year or so, I’ve really got into Little Mix. They’re such a guilty pleasure and their songs are absolute anthems. (FYI Power is probably my favourite song) What’s more, they actually seem like a lovely bunch of gals, what with their LGBTQ+ and feminist focused power anthems.
My review of the Leeds First Direct Arena
Admittedly, I’d never been to Leeds First Direct Arena before. I’m from Manchester so naturally my nearest arena is the M.E.N. Arena.
I got the opportunity to watch Little Mix from the comfort of a VIP First Direct box, with a bunch of fellow lovely bloggers and press people. I’d never experienced a VIP box before and despite this being a gifted experience, I would thoroughly recommend it if you want a more intimate experience with friends and family at a show. If you’re a First Direct Bank customer, even better because you get loads of benefits as a result of that, which I’d never realised before. So if you happen to be going to watch a show there, I’d check that out.
In our box, we got a caterer, bev fridge (important), goodie bags, glitter and more.
What were Little Mix like?
Well they were an absolute joy if I’m honest. It had been a while since I last went to a Pop concert. Honestly how do these girls keep dancing so fiercely but also sing like a boss?
They played all the hits and I recognised every single song in the setlist which is pretty impressive. It was also super comfortable for a granny at heart like me, because I didn’t have to deal with the push and shove of a crowd. Our box was right in the middle, so we could got a great view as well.
It was an absolute pleasure, Branded3 and thank you for the opportunity!
