Girls Aloud Unveils Changes to Outfits for Upcoming Reunion Tour: Cheryl Aims for Appropriate Glam
Girls Aloud, the iconic girl band, is set to make a triumphant return to the stage for a highly-anticipated reunion tour next year. Cheryl, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts, and Kimberley Walsh are gearing up to honor their late bandmate Sarah Harding, who passed away in September 2021.
As they prepare for the tour in May and June 2024, marking 21 years since winning "Popstars: The Rivals," the group has revealed a departure from their noughties fame, especially in terms of their stage outfits. The band, known for rocking revealing leotards and tight catsuits, shared insights on the changes during an interview with Jessie and Lennie Ware on their Table Manners podcast.
Cheryl, in particular, expressed her intention to wear something "sparkly" yet "appropriate" this time around. The singer, who shares a son, Bear, with ex Liam Payne, emphasized her concern about her son being teased at school over her previous stage outfits. The band members playfully discussed potential outfit choices, with Cheryl ruling out a return to leotards, and Kimberley expressing reservations about having her "bum out" on stage.
Nadine Coyle, however, was more open to the possibility of revisiting their iconic noughties looks, asserting that they are the adults and can make such decisions. Cheryl assured that her outfit would be glamorous but not overly revealing.
The band, in their discussions, also reflected on their early fame, sharing amusing anecdotes about adjusting to adult life. Nicola Roberts recalled not realizing they would receive mail and hilariously described finding a Christmas sack of unopened letters. Nadine shared a memory of receiving a hefty bill for her car, not realizing she had to pay for it.
Addressing the absence of Sarah Harding, the band acknowledged the emotional challenges of performing without her. They discussed plans to honor Sarah on the tour, seeking approval from her mother, Marie Hardman, for using Sarah's vocals on stage. The band expressed their desire to let Sarah's voice play during certain parts of the performance, respecting the unique qualities she brought to their songs.
Tickets for the reunion tour went on pre-sale on Wednesday, with general sale starting on Friday. Prices range from £48.50 to £195, offering fans various options for experiencing the nostalgic tour. The 15-show tour across the UK and Ireland is set to kick off in Dublin in May, promising a celebration of Girls Aloud's beloved hits without new music.
