Girls Aloud fans brave the cold to queue for Nottingham concert
POP fans braved the freezing early hours to queue for the chance of a front row seat to see their idols, Girls Aloud, live in Nottingham.
Sales assistant Charlie Leatherland, 18, from Mansfield had been sitting on the cold, hard pavement outside the Capital FM Arena from 4am. “I don’t mind the cold. They are simply the best girl band ever and I have to be there at the front. And I know they appreciate what we do.”
By mid-afternoon the queue had reached more than 100 snaking around the arena. Just behind Charlie was 20-year-old Mataya Jackson, who had travelled 4,500 miles from Miami, Florida, to follow the band on their ‘Ten: The Hits Tour’. “This will be my ninth concert; I just can’t get enough of their fantastic performances. I haven’t added up how much it has cost, but it’s all worth it,” she said.
Her effort, though, was dwarfed by Stacey Bradley, 21, from Dublin who had been to 13 gigs and Rachel Staunton, also 21, from Edinburgh who was at her eleventh.

The chart-topping all-girl band, featuring former X factor judge Cheryl Cole, were performing last night just a day before the world’s biggest boy band, One Direction, arrive in the Arena on their global Take Me Home Tour.
Coincidentally, both were created through the TV talent shows; Girls Aloud from Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 and One Direction via The X Factor in 2010.
