Girls Aloud have taken their sold-out Out of Control Tour to Glasgow SECC Arena on 8th & 9th May 2009. Judging by the arena’s rigorous security, the SECC was expecting trouble at the Girls Aloud concert, despite the fact most fans seemed armed with only pink hats or flashing bunny ears.
Thankfully when the excited crowd made it through the doors, they were treated to a hugely entertaining evening, with Girls Aloud proving they are still Britain’s number 1 girl band.
From a sassy looking ‘The Promise’ performance to the sugar rush of a closing medley of hits, this concert ticked all the boxes in how a successful live concert should be run. Girls Aloud gave the crowd a sexy pole-dancing routine dressed in skintight PVC dominatrix costumes to Britney’s Womanizer.
It was Sarah Harding who often put the most vigour into the occasionally raunchy dance routines, but Cheryl Cole was easily the crowds favourite. Her stint on The X Factor have turned the pop babe into a national sweetheart, every time the babe was on the big screens, brought deafening screams from the crowd.
The show delivered as a spectacle, too, with the night’s stand-out moment seeing the group move on to a raised platform, and travel across the crowd to perform at the back of the hall. Hysteria ensued, and brought the thought that perhaps those security checks were needed after all.
Girls Aloud were at Glasgow SECC Arena for both the 8th & 9th May 2009. Checkout the pictures from both concerts below:
