Even though previous reports claimed Girls Aloud would be releasing a new video, the girl group have confirmed they will not be recording new videos or music.
Nadine said: ‘There is no new music and there is no video – although we’ve shot a commercial.’
Cheryl shared in a statement: ‘We all started talking about the possibility of doing something to celebrate Girls Aloud’s 20-year anniversary a few years ago. The anniversary seemed like an obvious thing that we would celebrate.
‘But when Sarah fell ill all priorities changed. She passed away a year before the anniversary and it just didn’t feel right, it felt too soon.’
The pop group want to use the tour as an opportunity to ‘celebrate’ their late friend and colleague.

Cheryl added: ‘But now, I think there is an energy that does makes it feel right. It’s the right time to celebrate Sarah, it’s the right time to celebrate the band and the right time to celebrate the fact we can still do this 21 years later. That’s a big honour in lots of ways.’
Kimberley said: ‘Over the last year, we’ve felt this outpouring of love – obviously towards Sarah, but actually towards all of us as a group.
‘And I guess it’s ignited something in all of us again. It feels like something has changed and it does feel like the right time to celebrate Sarah and the 20-year anniversary that we didn’t celebrate at the time.’
The iconic British girls group are hopeful fans will enjoy the tour as much as them.
Pre-sale for their tour will kick off at 9am, Wednesday November 29. General ticket sale will begin on 9am, Friday, December 1.
