Four of the five members reunite for six date stadium trek
The Spice Girls have announced a 2019 reunion tour in the UK. Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice) and Melanie Brown (Scary Spice) will launch a six date stadium trek in June. The now British quartet confirmed the news via a social media video.
Singer Jess Glynne will join the spiciness as support. Tickets are on sale Saturday, November 10th at 10:30 am local time via Ticketmaster. There will be no pre-sales for these shows.
“It’s time to spice things up all over again! I can’t wait to perform to our forever supporting fans and a whole new spice generation!” Bunton comments via a press release. “Together we [will] celebrate girl power with our fans and the next generation… Hold tight it’s gonna be fun,” Horner chimes in.
Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) will not be participating due to prior business commitments. “Being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish my girls so much love and fun as they go back on tour, I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time!” she says via social media.
Rumors of the reunion have been circulating for awhile. Members have hinted at a reunion in recent months. The all girl group last performed together in 2012 during the Olympics closing ceremony, and haven’t toured together since 2008.
