For all those who were a fan of former girl music band Spice Girls, we have some interesting news for you. The Spice Girls will reunite, without Posh Spice (aka Victoria Beckham) for a 2019 UK stadium tour.
The girls namely, Ginger Spice, Baby Spice, Sporty Spice and Scary Spice officially announced their six-date stadium hopping with a video posted on social media Monday. In the announcement, it was revealed that the singer Jess Glynne will serve as a special guest on the new quartet's tour.
The tour will kick off on June 1, 2019, at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium and will conclude with a gig at London’s Wembley Stadium on June 15.
In September, Melanie ‘Scary Spice’ Brown confirmed to James Corden that the Spice Girls would bring ‘Girl Power’ back for a reunion tour that likely wouldn’t include Victoria ‘Posh Spice’ Beckham.
In a talk, Melanie told James: “We’re going to be going on tour. Us four for sure. We’ll see about [Posh], but us four are definitely going to be on tour. She might join us for a few [shows]. She better.”
When the news reached Victoria Beckham, she denied being involved in this and said, “I’m not going on tour. What does that look like in the future? It’s not me in a catsuit.”
Meanwhile, all five members had in February, released a statement where they talked about some “exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of the Spice Girls.”
“We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for the Spice Girls,” the group said in a statement. “The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together.”
