Girls Aloud: Cheryl Cole & Co forced to cancel upcoming tour date

Girls Aloud

Girls Aloud have been forced to cancel one of their upcoming tour dates from their current reunion tour.

The group have axed next weekend's date in Dublin, Ireland, with a week's notice.

It comes amid reports that sales of tickets to the groups reunion tour have been disappointing.

It was reported recently that a group have had to axe prices in order to get fans into venues.

Tickets for some shows have been selling for £26, almost half the £55 price they were originally sold at for venues such as the O2 Arena.

“The last time Girls Aloud toured we saw unrivalled ticket demand, so we’re really surprised to see tickets now trading for less than their face value,” Viagogo site spokesperson Ed Parkinson said.

However a spokesperson for the tour insisted that the cancelled dates have nothing to do with flagging ticket sales.

They said: "Unfortunately, due to unforeseen time restraints with the transportation of production equipment between the Irish & UK tour dates, the extra Girls Aloud concert added on Sunday 17th March 2013 at The O2 has been cancelled.

"Due to tour routing it has not been possible to reschedule this date."

Thursday night so the girls play to crowds at Manchester arena, however there were still plenty of empty seats as the gig kicked off.

One source told us: "There were rows and rows of free spaces."
