Girls Alive

Get your credit card details ready: tickets for Girls Aloud's spanking new tour go on sale this morning. (Please note spanking may not actually be included in the ticket price)

As you may recall, we were bowled over by the girls' gig in Hammersmith earlier this year, so we've already stumped up for next year's extravaganza.

This time round it's an arena tour, so you should expect the following:

  • pre-gig journey to out-of-town industrial wasteland on crowded bus
  • young girls with glow-sticks and whistles
  • acoustic version of popular ballad featuring previously anonymous guitarist 'front stage'
  • massive glitter cannons
  • the girls flying over the audience on a harness
  • appalling acoustics

If you're interested (and why wouldn't you be?) you can catch the girls in the following cities:

MAY 2006
22 - Nottingham Arena
23 - Sheffield Hallam FM Arena
24 - Newcastle Metro Radio Arena
26 - Birmingham NIA Arena
27 - Manchester MEN Arena
28 - Glasgow SECC
30 - Cardiff International Arena
31 - Bournemouth International Centre

JUNE 2006
01 - Brighton Centre
03 - Wembley Arena

And you can obtain your entry rights for a reasonable £25, plus an unreasonable £99,000* booking fee, courtesy of ticketbastard.

The new album cover (out November) looks darn sophisticated, too. Although, by Girls Aloud's standards, sophisticated means 'not dressed by Topshop', but there you go...
