Since September: BBC launches The Empty Seats Tour on YouTube
James R | On 09, May 2021
Little Mix The Search winners Since September are streaming their new tour on YouTube, but with a slight difference.
The BBC is streaming The Empty Seats Tour, a three-part series that follows the winning band in the beginning of a year leading up to the biggest gigs of their lives. In preparation for their prize to support Little Mix on their postponed nationwide tour in 2022, the series follows the band as they embark on a tour playing at some of the UK’s most iconic venues – but in front of empty seats rather than sold out crowds.
With gigs and concerts currently on hold due to the nationwide lockdown, the boys are given a rare opportunity to perform at some of their favourite music venues across the country. Taking in each of their home towns, The Empty Seats Tour sees the boys play at the City of Coventry Stadium, Salford Lad’s Club in Greater Manchester, and finishes with a performance from the rooftop of the Tate London along with a pit stop in Blackpool.
Viewers can also expect a special appearance from one of Little Mix who visits to share some words of wisdom and advice.
It is a ModestTV production for the BBC YouTube channel, commissioned by Jo Wallace, Acting Controller Entertainment Commissioning. The Executive Producer for ModestTV is Andrea Hamilton and the Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Jamie Dodds. All three episodes are now on the BBC YouTube channel.
