Wow I'm imagining this as a thing that actually happened in an alternate reality - glorious. Girls Aloud just announcing a random pride headliner... the stuff of dreams.It’s ashame they ended their journey that night. I think they must regret it in some ways. Years ago there tended to be such a definitive yes/no split for bands whereas now there’s bands still together but not always touring or releasing new music continuously (Atomic Kitten, Little Mix, B*Witched, Take That, Blue etc). If that 10 years ago was now they’d probably do the odd gig, Pride event and odd thing for the fans & for themselves.
Wasn't it originally almost 3 hours long so a lot was cut during rehearsal?The setlist of the TEN Tour is the biggest ''wasted potential''. They could do wonders with a few extra songs, interludes and medleys. But alas, it was a good show.

Yes it was included in the GA15 leak. Think it was originally played on a WeLovePop podcast or something by fascination if my memory is right.Was that even a leak? It seemed kinda fanmade to me
Your memory is correct. We first heard it as part of WeLovePop's Spice Girls vs. Girls Aloud podcast from 2014. The isolated mashup then leaked with the GA15 leaks.Yes it was included in the GA15 leak. Think it was originally played on a WeLovePop podcast or something by fascination if my memory is right.
I find it interesting that that random mashup of "Fling", "Girl Overboard" and "Graffiti My Soul" leaked and then Nicola said she never heard it - where did it come from?! Maybe in the initial plans and cut before it even got to the girls?
"Call Me Maybe" was such a dud - I remember even at the show it felt like it cut the momentum of the show. Their use of "Models" as an interlude was inspired and feel they could have done that with a few other tracks - like maybe "Swinging London Town" before "Sexy!" or "Every Now And Then" before "Something Kinda Ooooh".
I also loved the idea of the chronological singles but they let go of that so quickly with "Wake Me Up". Overall, the ideas were there but the overall execution wasn't the best - they should have gotten a fresh music director to bring in some new ideas and band arrangements.
