It’s time to get out those fluffy scrunchies and platform boots because the Spice Girls are reuniting and are getting ready to spice up our lives with a tour – minus one member.
While it’s been rumoured that the British girl group would be getting back together it’s also been reported that Posh Spice, AKA Victoria Beckham, had no interest in getting back together with the gang.
And so it really came as no surprise when Mel B (Scary Spice), Mel C (Sporty Spice), Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) and Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) announced that they would be doing a reunion tour without Posh.
What Does Posh Spice Think About The Spice Girls Going On Tour Without Her? She Just Responded To The Reunion Tour On Instagram
The official announcement came in the form of a seriously exciting video which the group posted to Instagram on Monday, in which the girls appeared to be getting ready for a TV interview in four separate cities, Spice World, London, Liverpool and Los Angeles.
The skit showed the girls getting into a tiff about their outfits before they brought on all of the 90s nostalgia with a little acapella rendition of ‘Spice Up Your Life’. They also announced their upcoming tour dates in the video.
The video was captioned, “Breaking Spice news… Tickets on sale Saturday 10.30am” before adding the hashtags “#GirlPower #FriendshipNeverEnds”.
While the tour won’t include Victoria Beckham, the former Spice Girl took to her own Instagram account on Monday to respond to the tour news, wishing the girls “so much love and fun”.
