The Girls Aloud star begins her first ever full solo tour in Belfast, telling Capital she wants to drive fans wild.
Cheryl Cole kicked off her UK tour in Belfast last night (3rd October), saying she wanted to cause "hysteria" during the three-week jaunt.
The star delighted fans at the Odyssey Arena playing a career-spanning set, which included her hits 'Call My Name' and 'Fight For This Love'.
Speaking to Capital FM, Cheryl said she could not wait to begin the tour, which marks her first as a solo performer.
"I want it to just be fun from the start to the finish. I don't want anybody to have a breather – I want hysteria," she said.
The opening night of Cheryl's tour featured energetic dance routines and a number of costume changes, with some of the star's outfits reminiscent of what she wore at the start of her career with Girls Aloud.

Asked if she felt nervous about the tour, which will see her play two hometown shows in Newcastle, Cheryl replied: "I'm not. I'm a long time in the industry. It's nerve-wracking that I'm alone.
"The only thing I've done alone is when I supported the [Black Eyed] Peas, so obviously it's a far bigger scale. But I'm so excited, the choreography is sick."
Cheryl hailed her "amazing" fans as she left the stage in Belfast last night.
The tour continues tonight (4th October) in Dublin, before arriving in the UK at the Capital FM arena in Nottingham on 6th October.
