Babes Promise a Sweet Show


Byline: By Gordon Barr

Britain's top girl group the Sugababes are at Newcastle City Hall on Tuesday. Showbusiness Reporter Gordon Barr catches up with band member Keisha

In August 2002, all-girl trio the Sugababes brought Newcastle city centre to a halt.

They attracted about 2,000 people to Northumberland Street for an open-air gig to launch their album Angels With Dirty Faces.
