They’re back! After a decade away, the biggest-selling girl group of the 21st century have announced their reunion with the Girls Aloud Show, a fifteen-date arena tour through the UK and Ireland. It will be a magical celebration of their career and the memory of their late bandmate Sarah Harding, who tragically passed away in 2021.
Girls Aloud — comprising Sarah Harding, Cheryl, Kimberley Walsh, Nicola Roberts and Nadine Coyle — formed in 2002, on the ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals. The endearingly real, still-teenaged group members became instant national sweethearts, and with stunning voices to boot. In the wake of the programme, they released their debut single ‘Sound of the Underground’, an electro-surf scorcher that became the UK Christmas No.1 and spent four weeks there. The track would later place on several lists of the best songs of the 2000s. It also marked Girls Aloud’s first collaboration with the writing and production team Xenomania, which would go on to define their career.
