The Spice Girls are Going on a Reunion Tour This Summer in the US & UK
THIS IS NOT A DRILL! Our prayers have been answered and the Spice Girls are reuniting! The ladies are set to embark on a world tour this summer – and Victoria Beckham is “fully on board” too, despite November reports that she'd refused. According to TMZ, the group is getting back together for a concert tour that will begin in England and later head off to the U.S. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see our favorite girl group reunited!
The news of their reunion comes after Victoria, Mel B, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Melanie C met last week with their former manager, Simon Fuller. The planning is apparently still in the early stages, but everyone is committed to making this tour happen.
Though fans never gave up on the possibility of a Spice Girls reunion, Geri said she had given up hope just before they solidified these plans. “You get to a point where you go, ‘Do you know what, just let it go,'” she told The Sun.
“When it finally came together the other day, we all came and sat around and went, ‘Maybe we should do something.’ And we all agreed. I think everyone goes through different stages in their life. Who knows why but you get into different mind frames,” she continued.
“When we all came together it was really nice to reflect on the past. Then we looked at the new generation as well and thought, ‘We should think about them. That’s important to us,'” Geri added. “Regardless of whether we were in a band singing together, I still want to know that they’re happy and well and support them individually or collectively. I really do care about them.”
Geri herself didn't confirm that a tour is officially happening, but she made it clear that plans are definitely in the works. “I think [touring is] one of the things that we look back on from the past and we’ve had so many amazing memories. Whatever we decide to do, however it unfolds, it will be something joyful and very connective,” Geri said.
“We love our fans, we love the music, we respect them. And we want to share that spirit of the Spice Girls. All I can say is: Watch this space,” she added.
Oh, we'll be watching! This is the closest we've gotten to a Spice Girls reunion ever – though rumors have circulated several times in the past! Now, it seems to be for real! Considering Victoria is also involved, this will make for an EPIC tour. If we ever needed the Spice Girls, it's now. The world could use some girl power to remind ourselves why we work so hard for equality, respect and justice.
