Girls Aloud in Newcastle stage times as The Show tour set for Utilita Arena

Their The Show tour is now well underway and there's not long now until Girls Aloud arrive in Newcastle for three consecutive nights at the Utilita Arena.

After announcing the reunion tour back in November and promising fans they'd make sure it was a fitting tribute to late bandmate Sarah Harding, who lost her battle with cancer in 2021, tickets flew out at such a rate that extra dates had to be scheduled before they'd even gone on general sale.

And, after waiting nearly a year for opening night, fans flocked to the 3Arena in Dublin on Friday, May 17, to see Cheryl, Nadine, Kimberley and Nicola on opening night, as they delighted with hit after hit and paid tribute to Sarah in a poignant and emotional away. The Popstars: The Rivals act played a second night in Dublin on May 18, before heading to Belfast for two performances.
