Newly rekindled Girls Aloud are set to return to the stage for the first time since 2008, when they kick off their comeback tour next year, and the demand for their shows is so large that a new stop off in London has been added to the schedule.

The comeback Queens will kick off their tour at Newcastle’s Metro Arena on 21 February 2013 for two back to back shows, before gradually zigzagging their way across the country until it grinds to a halt on 20 March 2013 at the Echo Arena in Liverpool. Whilst it seemed that the original schedule was as all-encompassing as necessary, the girls have now been forced to pencil in yet another show at London’s O2 Arena. The new show will follow the originally planned performances on the 1 and 2 March 2013, and will take place on the 3rd.

The five ladies, Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts, Sarah Harding and Kimberley Walsh have all pledged to join forces once again and not only have a new tour in the pipeline, but also a new compilation of hits to celebrate their reunion and tenth anniversary. The new album, Ten, will be released on 26 November 2012, whilst tickets for the 2013 shows are already on sale, so move fast if you don’t want to miss out.
