I kind of get this impression: if people were searching for their tickets, and were offered a tier block, they'd be more inclined to think "meh, let's forget about it then" as opposed to "hmm, but I really want/need to go, I'll buy these anyway!". I think that's the missing factor with them, that "must-see" factor.

Hopefully that makes sense, it is gone 2am lol.

Btw, I think most of us should (kind of) apologize to Una, shouldn't we? lol

We kept on saying how she wouldn't be able to tour being 6 months pregnant and she's making a fanatstic job. I didn't expect her to be doing things like this: http://youtu.be/vk6HVsefVlw?t=2m39s at all.

I'm sure that if the pregnant one had been any of the other 4, things would've been quite different. Kudos to Una for being so professional.

Well, me and my brother are in our hotel in Nottingham, soon to be getting ready for the show at the Capital FM Arena!

I'm just so excited. I'm listening to OYR for the third time today!
Will post later

Only a quick review. Will go into more detail later.

The show is absolutely incredible. The best show I've ever been to. Rather a loud show too. One point I thought my ear drums were going to burst! Such a step up from the Headlines! Tour. I felt so proud of the girls, and they really did step up their game.
It's amazing to think that earlier on in the year that they were only playing theatres and the tour seemed to be so low budget (as much as I LOVE the tour!)

Will post a more deatiled review, and links to pictures ASAP!

I've been to far, far better shows than The Saturdays All Fired Up tour. I enjoyed it for what it was, but it was still fairly... dare I say, amateurish, compared to a few other shows I've been to. Glad you enjoyed it to that extent though. :)

I've been trying to get some more info on the timing of the Wembley concert, but it's not easy to find.
Is it true that it really starts at 6.30 pm? That's really early!
And at what time is the show finished?

I think its more likely that when the doors open so you can enter the arena. Shows usually start around half 8.

I've only been to four tours (JLS, Beverley Knight, The Saturdays twice) so I have quite a limited amount of concert experience!
I love the opening though. Fits in so well with the song, and the video played before they arrive is cool too!"

Hahaha. Of course!
I have tickets to Wembley, but I can't make it. I'm so annoyed! Glad I didn't pay!

I emailed the company who filmed the show for the big screens at each of the dates. I simply said:

'Do you have any footage that you filmed of The Saturdays All Fired Up Live 2011 Tour?'

And they replied:
'Hi. I'm afraid that we do not have the footage of The Saturdays. It does exist, but you would need to contact them'

So, there is footage, which would explain Manchester being filmed, but they film all their shows apparently.
Hopefully they will release the show, either as a download or a DVD. If they could with Headlines! Live, then I'm sure they can with All Fired Up Live!

I hope they release it as a DVD on its own this time rather than giving it away with an album on their website.

I hope we're not dealing again with a we-keep-it-for-ourselves,it's-not-good-enough-for-a-DVD-release kind of situation.

I know right.
I've emailed the MEN Arena, but they haven't got back yet :)

I still think it is really wierd that no filming, apart from the screens, took place at Wembley!

^ Why though? If the DVD was filmed at Manchester, why would they randomly need to film at Wembley?
