Kids of the 90s this is our year…grab your platforms and hair crimpers, Spice Girls have confirmed a 2019 reunion tour.
It’s been well over 20 years since the 90s girl band released the single ‘Wannabe’ and left many of us arguing over whether we were Sporty, Baby, Ginger, Scary or Posh. Now it’s our chance to enjoy it all over again as they come back together for a UK tour.
The group said in a statement: “We are beyond excited to be reuniting next year for a stadium tour! Bringing girl power and our message of friendship and love back to the stage feels more relevant than ever. We hope everyone can join us for one big Spice Girls party!”
Mel B (the one with all the animal prints, not the one that wore trackies all the time) spilled the beans on ITV’s Loose Women, revealing that fans will be able to get their hands on tickets from Friday 9 November.
She said: “Now all the wheels are in motion. Our tickets go on sale on Friday, November 10. The pressure is on now. Hopefully you’re going to buy some tickets and come and see us.”
The Spice Girls are planning on heading out on a 12-date stadium tour next summer. No doubt they’ll be performing all the classics, including ‘2 Become 1’, ‘Stop’ and ‘Spice Up Your Life’.
The band will kick off their tour at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium on 1 June 2019, before moving onto dates in Coventry, London, Edinburgh, Bristol and Sunderland throughout the rest of the summer.
Together they were icons of the 90s and purveyors of ‘girl power’, selling over 85 record worldwide and even releasing their own movie during their career.
But there’s one thing that’ll be slightly different from seeing the group back in the day: on this tour it’s been confirmed that Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner have all signed up to relive the classic. That’s right, there’s no Posh Spice, as Victoria Beckham won’t be part of the reunion tour.
Mel B did, however, tease us all by saying we might get to see Victoria hit the stage once more ‘at some point’ in the tour.
She said: “It’s just the four of us that are fully confirmed but Vic might join us at some point. I hope so. It would be a shame if she didn’t.”
There’s a pretty good reason why Victoria wouldn’t sign up, being a mum of four and a fashion line owner. Oh, and probably fairly stinking rich already. Adding a global tour in to the mix seems a bit pointless when you’re
