When Is The Spice Girls Reunion Tour? You'll Wanna Be Free This Summer
Stop, right now, thank you very much, there's some new information regarding the Spice Girls reunion tour. And there's one question you need to know: When is the Spice Girls reunion tour happening? According to TMZ, all five members of the girl group — Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Geri Horner (née Halliwell), Emma Bunton, and Mel C. — will hit the road late this summer for a tour that will make stops in the U.K. and the U.S. You know you'll wannabe there to hear the Spice Girls sing their greatest hits, especially since TMZ reports there's "NO plan for a Vegas residency and no plan to record new music."
Last week, the Spice Girls officially reunited and shared a picture of that blessed reunion on Instagram that, as Beckham wrote, proves #friendshipneverends. But, since these friends hadn't been together in a while — they were last photographed all together in 2012, the same year they reunited for the London Olympics — fans assumed some big news would be coming soon. Now, it seems they got their answer: These girls are reuniting for another tour, the group's first in just over a decade.
According to TMZ's sources, the photo — which Bunton captioned: "The future is looking spicy!" —was taken during a meeting with their former manager (and American Idol creator) Simon Fuller, where they were reportedly "rough planning" for a world tour, slated to "kick off in late summer." Rumor has it, they'll start in England before flying across the pond for dates in America. And unfortunately, for right now, that's all it is — a rumor.
But, it seems like one of those rumors that's bound to come true. Especially since after posting the photo, the Spice Girls released a joint statement to Entertainment Tonight explaining:
"We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching-up and reminiscing about the amazing times we have spent together. We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for The Spice Girls. The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together. We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of The Spice Girls, while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations."
Another hint that these "incredible new opportunities" they'll be exploring together is a tour? According to The Sun, Beckham reportedly finally agreed to a new Spice Girls project after being told she didn't have to sing. TMZ also reported that Beckham was the last one to sign on, but now she's "fully on board." She even posted a group photo with Fuller, thanking him for "such a great day."
And the fact that Beckham said she'll be there, is giving fans everything, all that joy can bring. This I swear. Mostly, because she's been open before about not wanting to relive her pop star days.
Last March, Beckham told Today there wouldn't be a Spice Girls reunion because the London Olympics was such a high note for the group. “We’re still very close," she said then, "but I think that you need to know when it’s time to actually say, 'That was great, we achieved a lot,' and everybody moves on."
Though, she did say, she'd "always be Posh" and it seems she's willing to unleash her inner Posh for the world to see.
While, it's true, the Spice Girls have yet to confirm any touring news, there are still lots of reasons to get excited. That's why you might as well grab your platform sneakers and get ready to zigazig-ah with your favorite '90s girl group. It's only a matter of time before the Spice Girls announce those tour dates, and you'll want to be ready.
