Girls Aloud thrill London
Girls Aloud wowed fans at London's O2 arena over the weekend with two stunning shows.
The group - Cheryl Cole, Sarah Harding, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh - all looked stunning in their tight Bondage-style outfits as they opened Friday's concert (16.05.08) with last year's hit 'Sexy! No, No, No'.
They then showcased some songs from their latest album 'Tangled Up' before thrilling the audience with a host of hits, including 'Love Machine', 'Sound of the Underground' and 'Biology'.
Cheryl - whose marriage to soccer star Ashley is going through a turbulent period following revelations he cheated on her - thanked fans for the support they had shown her and the rest of the group since they started their career in 2002.
She said: "It's amazing to be at the O2 as it's such a privilege to perform here. I just want to take this opportunity for all the support you've given us over the past six years and in recent times. It's fantastic."
She then dedicated the group's cover of the Pretenders' 'I'll Stand By You' to everyone who's been there for her and the band.
Other songs the girls covered were Robyn's 'Every Heartbeat' and Salt-n-Pepa's classic single 'Push It'.
Cheryl and Sarah also slammed rumours the group were about to split by telling the audience they are about to start work on the sixth studio album.
The girls - who by now had now changed into Lycra sportswear - finished off the show with a performance of 2006's 'Something Kinda Ooooh', which had every member of the audience on their feet and dancing.
