Girls Aloud announce reunion tour
British pop group Girls Aloud are all set to reunite for a tour due next year. The girls have confirmed the dates of the upcoming tour which will begin from Cheryl Cole’s hometown of Newcastle, with two concerts on February 21 and 22, 2013.
The girl band has also confirmed the dates for the release of their new single ‘Something New’ on November 18, 2012. Girls Aloud also announced the launch of a greatest hits album known as ‘Ten’. This year also marks a decade since the girls were put together by the ITV show ‘Popstars: The Rivals’ and had their first number one hit with ‘Sound Of The Underground’.
Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw had called the girls ‘the defining UK girl group of the modern era’. Nicola Roberts, at a news conference in London said that the reunion, which included the girls Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle and Sara Harding, was ‘meant to be’ in their tenth anniversary.
Between the years 2002 and 2009, the band scored 20 consecutive top ten hits and sold 4.3 million singles. But in the year 2009, the girls decided to part ways for a while, after which Cheryl Cole, Roberts and Coyle released their solo albums.
