Bad news for North American Little Mix fans!

In a statement released earlier today, the British girl band has announced the cancellation of their entire North American headlining tour, previously set to kick off in September.

The girls wrote: “As a group we decided that creating an amazing 3rd album had to take priority. We're so sorry to all the Mixers who bought tickets to come and see the show. As soon as the album is finished, we promise to make plans to return to the US and perform for you all. Xx Little Mix xX.”

What a bummer! The 18-date Salute Tour would have been Little Mix's first headlining tour in the U.S. We can imagine there are lots of disappointed Mixers at the moment.

Hopefully Little Mix will release a killer third album and be ready to hit the roads in North America once again soon after.

No official information has been released as of yet on how to obtain ticket refunds.
