Girls Aloud have confirmed they are to reunite with the announcement of a 2024 tour. Cheryl Tweedy, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh and Nadine Coyle will tour to celebrate their beloved bandmate Sarah Harding who died from breast cancer in 2021 aged 39.
Dates have been announced across May and June 2024, starting in Dublin before heading out across the UK, including two nights in Manchester. The tour will end in Liverpool on June 29.
The band took to Instagram on Wednesday night to reveal they will tour "in celebration of Sarah, our music and our incredible fans". The tour will be called The Girls Aloud Show.
Girls Aloud last performed on stage together a decade ago for their 10th anniversary with Cheryl, Kimberley, Nadine, Nicola and Sarah. It included huge shows at the Manchester Arena.
Now they will return to the AO Arena as a foursome for two huge gigs on May 23 and 24 as part of a UK and Ireland tour.
