The iconic girl group Girls Aloud return to Manchester for the first time in over ten years.

Girls Aloud fans will be able to see the quartet’s run of three shows at the 23,000-capacity AO Arena, from Thursday 23 May to Saturday, 25 May.

In the week leading up to the concerts, AO will also be running competitions on social media and in Manchester City Centre for the chance to win tickets and VIP packages.

Vicky Monk, group marketing director at AO, said: “We’re always looking to make our customers smile.

“We’re a northern brand and Girls Aloud are a northern group at heart, so it’s really exciting to see them return to Manchester at the AO Arena after so long and we’re looking forward to helping the concerts be even more memorable for those lucky enough to secure a spot at the salon.”
