Girls Aloud are set to play a London Olympics concert, as part of a special all-star “super-gig”, it has been reported.
Created through the ITV show Popstars The Rivals in 2002, Girls Aloud – consisting of Cheryl Cole, Nicole Roberts, Sarah Harding, Kimberley Walsh and Nadine Coyle – and are now said to be planning a reunion show to mark their 10th anniversary.
The Girls Aloud anniversary celebration is believed to be taking place during a huge concert held at London’s O2 arena during the Olympics 2012 next year.
Girls Aloud originally wanted to perform at Glastonbury for their comeback show but were disappointed when they found out that the legendary festival will, in fact, be cancelled next year due to the Olympics.
When the group heard about the possibility of a supergig, which would coincide with the Olympics, they were apparently thrilled.
Girls Aloud’s manager Hilary Shaw is said to be in talks with renowned music acts including Coldplay and The Rolling Stones about the supergig.
A source told The Sun: “The girls are getting very excited. The promoters are only looking to book massive, show-stopping acts, which they would be perfect for.”
“They would tick the pop box while The Rolling Stones would appeal to a much wider audience.”
The Girls Aloud Olympics event would be the first of its kind, giving revellers the chance to camp at the The O2.
Rumour has it that the band may also be lind-up for a spot at the Olympics opening ceremony.
Apparently even the super-busy Cheryl Cole is up for the Girls Aloud Olympics reunion as it will take place after her US X Factor run.
Now have a good snigger at the state of Girls Aloud back in their pre-stylist days (above).
