Check out some exclusive shots of American singer-songwriter Denis Coleman as he warmed up the stage for Little Mix at London's O2 Arena.

Denis Coleman has been on a meteoric trajectory since he began releasing music a couple of years ago. Born in the US but now based in London, the young singer-songwriter took to the stage at London’s O2 to support pop-powerhouse group Little Mix on their farewell tour.


Discussing the tour, Coleman says: “The Little Mix tour was an experience in many ways beyond words. The awe I felt for the girls and what they had created was immense, and watching them close this chapter with such an epic finale was truly special. During the tour I learnt so much, not just from the girls but from everyone around me. After a couple shows, the touring party and I quickly became a family and would do everything together, from wild nights out in Dublin to steaming each other’s T-shirts before the show. Looking back, my time on tour feels both long and short, like a lifetime worth of stories captured in one glance out of the van window. I will never forget the 35 days I spent on the road with Little Mix. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to play my part in their show and can’t wait to return to the stage on my own headline tour this August!”

I go so deep I get the bends...
I always sing at least one full line of this song directly to a person in the audience. That night it was a girl wearing light up bunny ears in the front row.

There was something about playing this show that felt strangely similar to taking off. Maybe it was the nerves and the altitude.

One single beam of light from the lighting rig glanced across my face at the perfect moment for this picture. I felt like the moon.
