Plymouth Pavilions double-bill with Little Mix and Plan B
PLYMOUTH'S Pavilions has a huge double-bill coming next week, with top acts Little Mix and Plan B playing to packed houses on consecutive days.
Hailed as the new Spice Girls, arguably the hottest new girl group in the land, Little Mix arrive at the Pavilions on Monday as part of their 18-date headlining tour of the country.
The lovely lasses originally auditioned for X Factor as solo performers, mentored by Tulisa Contostavlos, but joined forces to become first group to ever win the contest.
Having wowed the nation with their impressive vocal prowess the girls proceeded to debut at No 1 with Damian Rice-penned single Cannonball, soaring to the top nine months later with Wings, after signing to Cowell's Syco Music label.

Wings featured a dazzling vocal performance from each of the four girls – Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall – who helped co-write the single which showcased the soul-tinged/r'n'b-flavoured vibe that set out the stall for their debut album DNA which was released in November.
Last year they delighted the hordes at live arenas as part of the X Factor tour, were special guests on JLS's summer tour and performed at T4 on the Beach, but this will be their first headlining jaunt.
Say the girls: "It's so exciting that we're about to go out on our first tour! We spent most of last year recording our album and we can't wait to see our fans again."
Plan B, aka Ben Drew, has to be up there as one of the highlight acts to play Plymouth Pavilions in recent years, so witnessing him in action again next Tuesday will be a great thrill.
His last visit was back in March 2011, less than a week after claiming Best Male at the BRIT awards, when he played a wonderfully diverse set from The Defamation of Strickland Banks backed by his stonking super-slick five-piece band, showcasing his expert crooning abilities in retro soul mode before brandishing his toasting prowess with some of his harder-hitting rap tracks.
Last year was arguably Ben's busiest to date, with the release of Ill Manors the movie plus accompanying sound track which charted at No 1; he filmed a BBC3 documentary, starred in a remake of The Sweeney alongside Ray Winstone, headlined various festivals including BBC's Hackney One Big Weekend and the iTunes Festival, and even found time to go on tour.
