The word is out! After months of speculation, the ladies finally confirmed the news. One of the most iconic music groups of all times, the Spice Girls will be doing a tour. Although the rumor was that the members couldn’t come to an agreement, they actually did. The only difference is that you can expect to see only four of the original five names. The popular Victoria Beckham decided not to join the tour. Instead, you will be seeing Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell on stage.
“The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together… We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of The Spice Girl while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations.”- the girl announced the tour to Variety.
The fact that the Spice Girls are still so popular is really mind-blowing. The group split in 2000, but the millions of fans are still more supportive than ever. Everyone has been going crazy since the rumor of a reunion appeared in the beginning of 2018. The tour will start on June 1 in Manchester and will finish by the end of June. The tickets are still not available, but knowing the popularity they will sell out within seconds. If you are a huge Spice Girls fan, make sure to keep your eyes open for more news.
In spite of everyone’s opinion that Victoria Beckham is not in a good relationship with the rest of the girls, the popular designer is still good friends with everyone. Mel B, Mel C, Emma, Victoria, and Geri have stayed close throughout the years and shared some pictures from their gatherings in the past.
“Today marks a special day for the girls as they announce the first tour dates since we performed together in 2012. I won’t be joining my girls on stage again but being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish them so much love and fun as they go back on tour next year. I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time! X vb #spicegirls #friendshipneverends.”- Victoria broke her silence on the news.
The group was formed back in 1994 and managed by Simon Fuller. In 1995 their music was not as well received as expected. The girls debuted a chart-topping single called Wannabe at the beginning of 2016. That is how history was created. In the following two years, the group released several albums and a number of record-breaking hits. Geri announced her departure from the Spice Girls in 1998. The other members did record another album without her. By the end of 2000, the group was officially split. They reunited for a tour in 2007 and even performed at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. The last time they performed together was for the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony.
The Spice Girls had many attempts of a reunion since 2012. After the huge success of the performance, the group made efforts to come back together in 2013. Victoria Beckham did not welcome the idea of another tour. In 2016, Baby Spice, Ginger, and Scary Spice reunited and formed a group called GEM. The word is that they worked on new music, but we didn’t see or hear any of it. It wasn’t until February this year when we finally got hope that there will be an official tour.
