Fans have been speculating that Girls Aloud might be reuniting ever since Nicola Roberts teased a countdown on her social media and last week, the band, which consists of Cheryl, Nadine Coyle, Kimberly Walsh and Roberts, announced their first new run of gigs since their final show in 2013. Sarah Harding, who was also previously in the band, passed away in 2021 due to breast cancer.

Their arena tour for 2024 will take place around the UK in May and June and has been described as “a celebration of Girls Aloud’s rich back catalogue and all the ground-breaking success they have achieved as a band.”

The new dates will see the reunited group play additional shows at Dublin, Newcastle, Glasgow, Nottingham, Leeds, Birmingham, Liverpool and London.

The new dates rule out Girls Aloud from playing the legends slot at Glastonbury, but they still could theoretically play the festival on Friday.

Recently, the band responded to rumours that they may be playing a slot at next year’s instalment of the festival at Worthy Farm. 

“We’ve spoken about this but the thing is, we’d have to take our stage and so the logistics would be hard,” Coyle told British Vogue, discussing the prospect of taking to the stage at the world-renowned festival next year. “But we are touring at the same time so maybe we could get a jet in.”

In the interview, the band’s publicist confirmed that there have been no offers for Girls Aloud to play at Glastonbury 2024 yet.

Members Cheryl and Walsh also discussed the logistics around the potential appearance on BBC Radio 2’s Breakfast Show. “Can I just be blunt here? Glastonbury haven’t even asked us,” Cheryl told the host, with Walsh adding: “It would be epic, and I don’t even know if it’s feasible, but they need to ask us.”

In the discussion with British Vogue, Roberts also seemed to be open to the idea of playing Glastonbury 2024 and claimed that the band would have to go all out if they were to appear at Worthy Farm.

“We’ll obviously come up with some spectacular opening,” she told the outlet. “But all my ideas cost billions of pounds, which is the problem.”

The band have promised fans that their upcoming tour will be “magic”, and added that it will “never be the same” without Sarah Harding.

“It will never be the same again, we accept that,” Cheryl told Sky News, “but we’re going to make a new type of sparkle with her in it.”

“You’re reminded so constantly that she isn’t here,” added Coyle, confirming that the performances will be dedicated to Harding. “She is very much a part of who we are still, a huge part.”
