Mel revealed on her Instagram story that the reason she hopped on the underground with some of her team was so that she wasn’t late to the show. 

She told her 1.5 million followers on social media: ‘We are on the tube … We are on the tube on the way to Wembley so we are not late.’ 

Bands typically arrive at their sold out concerts in chauffeur driven cars and tour buses, however Mel instead opted to make a very low-key arrival at the show.

Mel appeared to be almost stage ready, as she donned a full face of make-up including a glitzy eye look with sweeping eyeliner and lashings of mascara.

The songstress sported a double denim look, including a cropped jacket and a pair of blue jeans which she teamed with a pair of black heeled boots. 

Mel teamed her ensemble with a white T-shirt, while completing her look with a black baker boy cap and wore her curly locks in a loose, bouncy style.  

Mel was no doubt on her way to the second night of the show after a successful return to the arena, 21 years since they last performed there as a group.
