On 9 September 2016, Little Mix stated in an interview that they knew when their next tour would be, but fans would have to wait for further details.

On 14 October 2016, Little Mix released the dates for the UK & Ireland leg of the tour, beginning on 27 October 2017 in Sheffield, Scotland. Ticket pre-sales were made available to fans who pre-ordered their new album and began on 19 October 2016 with general sale beginning on 21 October 2016. Due to instant sell outs, extra dates were added in Newcastle, Belfast, Glasgow, Nottingham, Birmingham, and London. After overwhelming demand, the UK & Ireland leg was extended, and began on 9 October 2017 in Aberdeen, Scotland. European tour dates were announced on 21 November 2016, for May and June 2017, while dates in Oceania were added for July 2017 on 4 December 2016.

On 13 January 2017 Little Mix announced an extension of the ‘Glory Days Tour’, entitled the Summer Shout Out. The shows ran from May to September 2017 throughout the UK in outdoor venues and stadiums.[6]

The Vamps supported the European leg of the tour. Ella Eyre, Sheppard, Louisa Johnson all supported selected dates on the Summer Shout Out shows. Zoe Badwi, Jade Thirlwall's cousin, was the opening act for the shows in Australia and New Zealand. Lina Makhul, Jessarae, and Aleem all supported selected dates on the UK & Ireland leg of the tour, while Lloyd Macey supported at the Manchester Arena show on 21 November 2017 after winning a prize fight on The X Factor.
