She opened it last night and from what I can see it was an amazing performance, and it was LIVE!

Before this thread is overtaken by posters asking why you would want to pay to see her mime, or the forum police telling you that there's enough Cheryl Cole threads . ..

It looks like she's putting on a great show, I'm going on the 9th Oct and can't wait!

She really danced her heart out didn't she?!

A few points I don't like though....

- She asked what songs we'd like from Three Words/Messy Little Raindrops MINUS the singles... None performed
- 17 songs with 3 being GA songs and 1 being Call My Name reprise
- The concert lasted 1 hour and 10 minutes

I wouldn't call myself a Cheryl fan by any stretch of the imagination but it's a bloody good album, actually one of my favourites of 2012, so I give credit where it's due. Never thought I'd want to seeh her live but I'm almost sorry I'm not going to any of the shows. Maybe there will be a DVD?

I was there last night. It was an incredible show. She sure knows how to put on a show! Majority of it was sung live which I was surprised at. Her vocals were great, as were the dance routines. She looks amazing, her abs are so enviable! Lol.

Great concert 8/10...downside was it couldve been longer.

That DM review is so typical of anything to do with Cheryl Cole. Focusing entirely on her strongest asset how she looks and little attention paid to her vocals.

Horses for courses, but not for me.

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not but every concert I've been to last 1 hour 30 mins - 2 hours!

Definately! There was a camera crew there filming. I heard on another forum that she will be filming at all the dates.

It was an ok concert. From what I could tell she did sing most (if not all) live, but when I say 'live', parts of it she was completely drowned out by the track. Her singing on the flood hit a few bum notes as well.

As someone else said, she was only on for just over an hour, which to me is a bit of a joke. For that price I'd expect 1hr 30 or 2 hours with a break. It was the earliest I've ever been out of a concert. Someone said to me she has only been solo a couple of years really but at the end of the day she's had 3 albums now, plus the GA songs so she should have enough to fill 1hr30 - 2hrs.

The length of the concert is strange, a few weeks ago in a radio interview she said she would be doing about 20 songs, so I wonder what happened.

She could have added a few more tracks to the set list like Rain On Me, Stand Up, Yeah Yeah and Boy Like You, but overall, I'm looking forward to seeing her on Sunday at the O2.

I'm surprised at the lack of dancing for some of the tracks.

I would have liked to have gone but glad I didn't now if only lasted that long. I think you can only excuse that length of set if your relying on one album of material but when you have 3 you have no excuse to not perform for 90 minutes, you would have thought she would have wanted to perform some mlr tracks as never toured with it and only released 2 singles. Maybe she just wants to forget about that era.

MLR is an embarrassment of an album so if she wants to forget about it I don't blame her. It's really appalling when you compare it to 3 Words and A Million Lights, and even more appalling when you compare it to other superior pop albums.

I wouldn't have been happy to attend such a short concert though, so maybe it's a good thing after all that I didn't go.

She really should have a few more songs in there, if it had been a longer tour I am sure they would have took the response on board and added some but seeing as it is short they probably can't do anything about it now.

Setlist:

1. Sexy Den a Mutha (with a headset)
2. Call My Name - Snippet
3. Girl In The Mirror
4. Promise This

-Interlude + Outfit change-

5. The Promise/Biology/Love Machine
6. Under The Sun
7. The Flood - Snippet

-Interlude + Outfit change-

8. Parachute - Snippet
9. Last One Standing
10. 3 Words
11. A Million Lights (Stage rises and rotates)

-Let's Get Down/Heartbreaker/Cockiness/Sexy and I Know It/Gangnam Style Interlude + Outfit change-

12. Ghetto Baby - Snippet (with headset)
13. Screw You

Encore:

14. Fight For This Love
15. Call My Name (reprise)

I'm actually surprised she did some GA songs. I didn't think she would.

The staging looks a bit bare though
