It’s a sad day in Mixerland as Little Mix cancel their Australian tour.
The girls broke the announcement in an official statement via iPhone notes (that’s when you know shit’s serious).
Of course, fans in the southern hemisphere were truly devastated about the decision and took it to Twitter to share their feelings. Some were truly devastated and frustrated while others accepted this was an important decision for the band’s future music.

this aint it girls… you cancel your tour in the U.S, never came to Latin America and now cancel other tour, but this time in Australia and NZ. It’s just so disrespectful and Internation mixers deserve much more. pic.twitter.com/SkE1LPFzAL— Little Mix Brasil (@BrasilLM) October 23, 2019
Some fans even considered for the girls to change their priorities and cancel their upcoming TV talent show search so fans could still see them live while they also worked on their new material.
love you girls but can’t you cancel your tv show instead of the tour your fans really deserve to see the lm5 tour – your management, label and team are doing you so dirty— brad (@typicalbrad) October 23, 2019
This isn’t the first time Little Mix have made this painful decision. Back in 2014, they pulled the plug on their US ‘Salute’ tour for the same reasons.
remember when y’all cancelled a whole US tour for the same reason 5 years ago— madi (@lovescontrol) October 23, 2019
We later found out the reason behind it was because the girls were really unhappy with the third album’s content and felt like it wasn’t them. They took some time to get their heads down and later dropped the much anticipated ‘Get Weird’ album, with their hit lead-single ‘Black Magic’.
We can’t imagine how Mixers who had tickets feel right now and hope that Little Mix manages to make Australia and New Zealand a priority for their next tour.
