Disco dancing with the lights down low…beats are thumping on a stereo…
After a manic week I went to see Girls Aloud on their ‘Ten’ tour. Ten representing the number of years the Girls have been going and their latest album which represents their hit songs so far and a few new ones. If you haven’t heard any of their music then I suggest you go onto YouTube to have a listen!
This is the 3rd time I’ve seen them in concert and I absolutely love them. Their fan base has grown up with them, which just shows the longevity and appeal they have. Good pop music, dance routines to match and 5 very different individual girls who have their own interests and lives outside of the group.
We had standing tickets (managed to position ourselves in the centre right by a mini stage that later they came across to perform on), best bit about this is room to dance like you are in a massive club.
They opened with Sound of The Underground and proceeded to take us down a trip on memory lane creating nostalgia for all of us. The costumes were amazing creating a different feel for each set. When ‘The Show’ struck up we were treated to a catwalk exhibition which resembled carnival queens, it was amazing and got the entire crowd pumped.
The girls are better now than they ever were before. Nicola Roberts has the most incredible voice which makes the hair on your arms stand up and has really come into her own, she looked absolutely stunning.
Halfway through the performance they came flying across to the centre stage on a light up moving platform of their name singing ‘Sexy No No No!’ we all went wild. The gorgeous dancers performing with the girls in the centre, really treating us to the wow factor. Where we were so close to the stage we go the privilege of seeing each of the girls up close smiling and interacting with us all- Cheryl giving us a wink, Kimberly smiling away at us and waving. It drove us all wild.
The finale of ‘I’ll Stand By You’ and ‘The Promise’ got us swaying and then doing our favourite dance routine. It was the best view I have ever had at a concert and for anyone going, you are in for a treat.
I came home with a sore throat from all the screeching I did and with a fond set of memories that I can’t wait to relive again when the DVD comes out.
If anyone from Girls Aloud is reading this (I wish) – Thank you. You are all truly beautiful and inspiring. Might I request that you bring out your own SIngstar game, and/or a fitness/ dance DVD for all the routines for your songs. I’m sure I won’t be alone in the queue for these items.
Cheryl, Kimberly, Nadine, Nicola and Sarah, here to the next 10 years!
