Little Mix Under Fire for Announcing Europe Tour Dates Right After Canceling Scotland Gig

The 'Woman Like Me' singers are forced to axe their Aberdeen concert, originally set for October 4, due to 'unforeseen logistical issues,' but will perform in other European cities in September.

AceShowbiz - Little Mix fans have expressed their disappointment after the group cancelled a concert in Scotland before announcing a string of European dates.

Officials at The Event Complex Aberdeen (TECA) announced on Friday, February 01 that the "Touch" hitmakers - comprised of Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jesy Nelson and Jade Thirlwall - had cancelled their show in the Scottish city due to logistical issues.

They shared a statement from the band's representatives which read, "Due to unforeseen logistical issues Little Mix have unfortunately had to cancel their Aberdeen show, scheduled for 4th October 2019. The band are really disappointed to not be able to make the show."

However, less than a hour after TECA's post, Little Mix shared a poster advertising their new tour dates. The announcement showed that they would be performing in countries such as Spain, Italy and Germany between September 16 and 27.

Many fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment in the band for cancelling the Scotland show, with one writing, "so hacked off little mix cancelled their tour in aberdeen after paying so much money and giving my friend a ticket for her bday (sic)," and another added, "@LittleMix my little girl is devastated she wont get to see you in aberdeen it was her present from santa as she was to young for the open aired one (crying emoji)."

Others were more outraged with them for announcing the new dates on the same day as the cancellation news.

"Weird how you can release new tour dates and the same time you've cancelled your Aberdeen tour. 3 and 6 year olds with broken hearts (crying emoji)," one user wrote, while another added, "Got a daughter who's gonna be gutted that you've cancelled Aberdeen..... but managing Europe no bother."

The Aberdeen date would have marked the start of the U.K. and Ireland leg of "LM5 - The Tour", which will now kick off in Belfast, Northern Ireland on October 6.
