I would hate for them to announce an official split plus Kimberley said they never would but lets face it, it doesn't exactly feel like they are together anyway! Can't wait for the tour!
Indeed, I was shocked to read about their split just after Kimberley indicated on The Jonathan Ross Show they wouldn't. Maybe they want separate careers but for the sake of the tour do not want to look like they are on their last legs as a group.

You may not be able to mistake their biology but there must have been cracks in their chemistry
As regards their success, it occurs to me that what goes up must come down. That's the law of physics!

So true and had they continued as a group in 2009 when Cheryl was at her height of popularity with X Factor they probaly would have had an immensely successful sixth studio album.

Kimberley said that "I don't think we're ever going to split up,"
Cheryl has said that they will split up at the end of this tour.
so...who knows....

i hope they release Every Now and Then and On The Metro...

Metro as the last single as it kind of relates to sound of the underground!

Interesting to see what will be happening now with their individual careers.

I thought they would announce it on stage though...

To be fair though, I have to laugh when people make out like they've been going for 10 years. The last proper album was 2008.

Saw this coming, as did everyone.

Really wished they released On The Metro or Every Now and Then as their final single instead of the Beautiful Cause You Love Me crap.

Gutted

If they want to split then fair enough, but they should have done it properly. They should have announced from the beginning it would be a farewell tour. They should have ended their singles run with Every Now And Then rather than Beautiful 'Cause You Love. They shouldn't have said Girls Aloud would never split. They should have released a CD of unreleased songs for the fans. They should have announced the split properly rather than on Twitter...

I only just became a fan last year and now they've split up for good. Bloody typical.

Still it's not all bad for me, I've still got five brand new GA albums to listen to.

It's a shame their career's ended on a somewhat lackluster note though - Something New had an awful chart run, Ten is their first album not to go Platinum and a group that had twenty consecutive Top 10 hits last single is one that bombed in at #'97. Perhaps it would have been better if they had ended on Out of Control?

Wait what am I saying, NO. One, I would personally have never got the chance to see them live if they had, and two fans wouldn't have got this 'final' goodbye.

Still there's always the 15th anniversary, and the 20th or when ever the-non Cheryl's run out of money really...

End of an era for me, I have grown up with this band. I was 13 when I bought their first single.

I think she is just as much at a risk as the others... not as much because of her potential solo career, but they all probably live very wealthy lifestyles. And for those lifestyles to continue, they have to continually fund it... just ask Mick Jagger, he'll take every penny he can get. I think she'll jump back on X Factor soon enough, few million for sitting at a table is not a bad idea.

Countless times boyband and girlband members end up in debts because they tried to live a lifestyle they couldn't afford.

NOOOOO!!!

Actually it was kind of inevitable. They must be one of the longest running girlbands ever.
En Vogue formed in 1989 and are still touring today after 24 years

Hardly shocking, but it's a great way to end. No bitter split, no member changes and have had a steady run through the charts.

Now i am looking forward to who will be the next generation's girlbands. So far we have Little Mix.

Ah this is a shame, I was at their last tour date in Liverpool last night and they all got pretty emotional (Sarah especially) when they sang I'll stand by you in their encore- I was fully expecting them to announce it then.
