Party like it's a Saturday night.

THE Saturdays claim to be named after the best party night of the week, but if last night's gig at the City Hall was anything to go by they should consider changing their name to the Tuesdays.

Bursting at the seams with an assorted mix of fans, I have never heard or seen a venue so excited, colourful and having a whole lot of fun right from the get go.

Mollie, Una, Rochelle, Frankie and Vanessa were ready to work and show us all that they did live up to the meaning behind their name! Lit up one by one, the girls appeared before us on stage to a huge city skyline backdrop and gigantic Saturdays signage as screams from the audience drowned out the opening vocals to If This Is Love.

All the hits from recent record Chasing Lights were there to keep the fans happy and with the girls showcasing new tracks such as the funk and heavy bassline-filled One Shot alongside a medley of cover tracks including Rihanna's Shut Up and Drive, Katy Perry's I Kissed A Girl and Pinks recent smash So What they showed us why we really Just Cant Get Enough of Britain's newest girl band.

Arriving back on stage to genuine ear piercing screams the Girls encore gave us Issues and biggest smash to date Up..
