Irish singer Nadine Coyle is planning a solo Girls Aloud greatest hits tour and will perform their biggest tracks – including Sound of the Underground, Love Machine and Call The Shots – on her own. 

The 32 year old star has made the executive decision to take to the stage as a one-woman-band, and will take on the group’s songs on her own after a reunion with her bandmates – Nicola Roberts, Sarah Harding, Kimberley Walsh and Cheryl Tweedy – proved too difficult to set up.

She says that due to fans begging her on social media, she’s determined to go ahead with the solo Girls Aloud tour, after she made a solo comeback with the song Go To Work last year.

“I love the Girls Aloud songs and get messages from fans asking to hear them performed live again. So this is giving them what they want,” she told The Sun newspaper.

She added: “This tour is gonna be one big party night out. All the hits the fans love plus the new songs I’ve been working on over the last few years. I literally can’t wait to get out back on the road again.”

The band split five years ago and aren’t on good terms, with Nadine previously admitting the girls became “very bitter” when she landed more lead vocals than any other member.

Girls Aloud formed on Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 and she said they parted ways was because there was “always politics” amongst them over who had the most time on the mic.

“It was fine at the start but there’s always politics in any band.

“It just happened that I always got more vocals than everybody else, so in terms of people wanting their voice heard, that wasn’t happening. “And it made people, very bitter. They didn’t like that.

“It’s so sad for me to have to admit this stuff now because for so long, there’s the band, and you want everybody to think we’re best friends and we have pillow fights and, you know, drink milkshakes.

“That’s what I wanted it to be. I really, really wanted that to be, but it just wasn’t how it was. So yeah there was [a divide]. We’re all very, very different characters.”

Nadine did expect the five of them to reunite in the future, although she thinks it would be “different” to the old days.

She said before: “Could we work together? Absolutely. We could do that next week and it would be fine. It might be different to how everything would work and how it would all go. Yeah, you’d just go, ‘We’d do it.'”
