Spice Girls reunion tour officially announced

It’s the news every Spice Girls fan has been waiting for - the girls are going back on tour, 23 years after they first spiced up our lives.

But Baby, Ginger, Scary and Sporty will be without their fifth member - Posh.

Victoria Beckham has declined to take part, meaning the band comes a four piece, and not for the first time.

Geri Horner originally left the band in 1998, and the rest of the girls performed together until their split in 2000.

It’s the news every Spice Girls fan has been waiting for - the girls are going back on tour, 23 years after they first spiced up our lives.

But Baby, Ginger, Scary and Sporty will be without their fifth member - Posh.

Victoria Beckham has declined to take part, meaning the band comes a four piece, and not for the first time.

Geri Horner originally left the band in 1998, and the rest of the girls performed together until their split in 2000.

“The Spice Girls, to me, were never The Spice Girls when there were only four of them, and although Victoria Beckham will always be my favourite of the five, I would feel the exact same if Emma, Geri or either of the two Mels weren’t included on the bill.”

Michelle Dignan is now a travel presenter on BBC Radio 5Live, but back in the 90s was part of a Spice Girls tribute band with her school friends (she performed as both Geri and Mel B - impressive).

“I’m gutted [Victoria] isn’t included but not surprised,” she says. “Out of all of them, she really doesn’t need the career boost!

“She has a very well-respected [fashion] brand - maybe she is worried that might be damaged by doing something ‘cheesy’.

“I’m very surprised that they are going ahead anyway as I think these things always work better when all members are involved.”

The band will embark on a six-date stadium tour across the UK next summer - stopping off in cities including Manchester, Sunderland and London.

Holly is certainly on board to see them after missing out in the past.

“I think I probably will [go and see them], but it genuinely won’t feel complete - and I would say that no matter who was missing.

“They kicked off their first tour as a five-piece in Dublin in 1998, when I was nine years old.

“Tickets sold out fairly quickly and as my parents had four kids under 11 then, it just wasn’t something that was possible at the time.

“When all five did the comeback tour together in 2008, they didn’t do any Irish dates as, if I recall correctly, our main arena venue was being renovated.”
