Girls Aloud back together for new tour
Band to release new single next month
GIRLS Aloud have reunited for a tour next year.
The 12-date tour will open in Cheryl Cole’s home city of Newcastle upon Tyne with two gigs on February 21 and 22.
The band also confirmed the release of their new single Something New on November 18. And a greatest hits album called Ten will also be released.
This year marks a decade since Girls Aloud were formed by the ITV show Popstars: The Rivals and claimed their first number one with Sound Of The Underground.
Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw said the five members of Girls Aloud – Cheryl, Sarah Harding, Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts – were “the defining UK girl group of the modern era”.
Nicola said the reunion was “meant to be” in their anniversary year.
And Cheryl said it was “incredible” to be back together.
She added: “If you asked us 10 years ago, we wouldn’t have dreamed we’d be here today”.
