Girls Aloud add extra Belfast gig

Girls Aloud:

Girls Aloud will play a third and final date for their Ulster fans next year, it was revealed today.

The record-breaking girl group will now play the Odyssey Arena on Saturday, May 3 as well as Sunday, May 4 and Monday, May 5.

The shows in Belfast will kick off their Tangled Up Tour 2008 and will be the only Irish dates that the foxy five-piece will play.

The new show was added on after tickets for the first two sold out. A spokeswoman for Wonderland Promotions said ticket demand to see Girls Aloud in Belfast had been " phenomenal".

It is understood Londonderry-born singer Nadine Coyle was keen to start the Tangled Up Tour - the band's third arena tour and biggest to date - in Northern Ireland where the girls have a huge following.

The band's latest album, Tangled Up, entered the charts in the Top 10 and their latest single, Call The Shots, went to number three in the charts.

The first single taken from the new album, Sexy! No No No, was their 16th Top 10 single, a run which saw them land a place in the Guinness World Records book for the most Top 10 hits in a row in the UK by a female group. The band beat Destiny Child, with 11 singles and the Spice Girls, who only managed 10.

Tickets to see Girls Aloud at the Odyssey Arena on Saturday, May 3 go on sale this Thursday, December 13, at 9am from usual outlets.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
