Something kinda eh?

March 18th, 2007

We at PRSD are hearing all sortsa rumours about Girls Aloud playing in Plymouth on June 9.

According to the Plymouth Sound website (we only looked at it for ‘research purposes’ - honest!) ‘Girls Aloud are going to finish off their national tour with a gig at Newnham Park, near Plympton. Details to follow’.

The rather fab Girls Aloud website seems to confirm that date on their tour diary and thisisplymouth (’research purposes’ again) is apparently convinced.

It says: ‘Event organisers Edge Promotions gained a licence for the event from South Hams District on Tuesday.

‘The company says it hopes Newnham Park will become one of the premier locations for outdoor live entertainment.

‘The event will include support from local bands such as Joey The Lips.’

Joey The chuffing Lips?! This is Girls Aloud we’re talking about, people, not
James Blunt.

The only other reference to the gig we’ve managed to find is this rather strange holding page which says tickets will be available early next week.

It all sounds a bit half-assed to us - not something you would normally associate with Ver Aloud. Who the heck are Edge Promotions? Why is there virtually no advance publicity? And, perhaps more importantly, who would want to see Girls Aloud, playing in a field, supported by Joey The Lips?!

    Yep girls alloud are coming. We know as we put the site up.

    Edge is a new company run by a local man from Plymouth.

    They could not pre-promote the gig as South Hams Council kept trying to block it.

    Unlike many others Edge would not promote and sell tickets until they were 100% sure that everything was right even the car parking.

    This is a local concert, run by locals for locals. So you should support it rather than kick it.

    Why Joey the lips. Well if you want to put your hand in your pocket to pay for someone better then make an offer.

    No one is making a bundle from this. Look at the size of the venue and work out the numbers for yourself.

    You should be thanking Edge for geetting the girls here.

    […] Let’s be honest, the shindig seemed ill-conceived from the off. Indeed, regular readers will remember we expressed scepticism about the event in March. […]
