Cheryl Tweedy has announced her first live performance almost one year on from the last time she was seen on stage.
The 36-year-old former Girls Aloud singer will be headlining the Mighty Hoopla festival which is taking place in Brockwell Park, London, on June 6.
Organisers announced the news this morning on Twitter, saying: “We are beyond excited to reveal the 2nd wave of HUGE acts coming to Hoopla including the main stage headliner for 2020 @CherylOfficial + @TheRealEve , @Alphabeat , @BeckyHill , @bigfreedia & many more…”
There are also some serious feel-good throwbacks among the lineup for the festival, such as Gabrielle, Atomic Kitten, Natasha Bedingfield and Anastacia.
The Geordie stunner is currently a coach on The Greatest Dancer but has struggled to maintain her music career after her comeback flop last year.
Cheryl, who shares a son with singer Liam Payne, 26, was left gutted when her new song Let You only reached 57 in the charts in 2019.
A year earlier, her other single Love Made Me Do It failed to get off the ground and sold just 5,000 copies in its first week.
It followed a painful performance on X-Factor where she was slammed by viewers for being ’embarrassing’.
“Give it up Cheryl, you’re embarrassing yourself #cringe,” one viewer expressed on twitter at the time.
The last time she took to the stage was at the Manchester Pride performance in August 2019, where she donned a sequin leotard for the LGBT+ celebration.
Her performance was reportedly a hit, especially after she entered the stage wrapped in a LGBTQ flag emblazoned with the words ‘Fight For This Love,’ but she has since taken a step back from festival gigs.
Cheryl had hinted in the past that if her music ever flopped, she would retire from the music industry to focus on her son Bear, who turns three years old this year.
The BBC One show was recently moved to an earlier time slot as it rivaled the ITV competition show The Masked Singer.
With her success continuing on the BBC show, Cheryl appears reluctant to give up her music career entirely although no other live festivals have yet been announced for the star this year.
