Girls Aloud are one of the most successful girl bands of all time, racking up millions of album sales, and selling out concert venues across the UK. In 2009 the band consisting of Cheryl Tweedy, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh, Sarah Harding and Nadine Coyle, went their separate ways to pursue solo careers and in 2013 they reunited for one last arena tour where they said farewell to their Alouders for good.
But while Girls Aloud are no longer together, ex-member Nadine Coyle will be bringing the groups hit releases and fan favorites back to life later this year as she embarks on a solo greatest hits tour. The showcase will see Coyle performing a number of Girls Aloud’s biggest hits along with a selection of her own solo records including some brand new songs.
Nadine will release a 4 track EP in April via Virgin/EMI, with the first track from the set dropping this Thursday, February 8th, ‘Girls On Fire’, an in your face Xenomania-produced pop creation celebrating strong women.
Speaking to the Sun newspaper about the tour, Nadine said: “I love the Girls Aloud songs and get messages from fans asking to hear them performed live again. So this is giving them what they want. This tour is gonna be one big party night out. All the hits the fans love plus the new songs I’ve been working on over the last few years. I literally can’t wait to get out back on the road again.”
The tour dates are:
Thursday 10th May – Glasgow O2 ABC
Friday 11th May – Birmingham O2 Institute 1
Sunday 13th May – Manchester O2 Ritz
Monday 14th May – Bristol O2 Academy 1
Tuesday 15th May – London O2 Shepherds Bush Empire
Saturday 19th May – Dublin Olympia
Sunday 20th May – Belfast Limelight
