Are You Surprised By The Popularity Of The Spice Girls?

You guys have already said that you're excited for the big reunion and that the girls have still got it, but they haven't been on stage in a while and they certainly have not started preparing for their reunion tour. However, that didn't stop fans in the UK from going crazy for tickets and in fact their London show sold out in just 38 seconds! The girls added 3 more dates to their tour just to accommodate those who weren't lucky enough the first time around. We know they are popular but are you at all surprised that their show sold out so quickly?

IDK, kinda suprise and kinda, I loved the Spice Girls...and people they did continue to sing after the group was no more, Baby,Sporty,Geri and Posh (not sure about MelB) had some song(s) after the group broked up and they really sounded good by themselves too, i was a fan of all of them except Ginger Spice/Geri but years after...i kinda liked her haha! happy for them, the British really have/had some good singers/performers, i love their music!! :D

I beg to differ! I'm in my 20's and I NEVER loved the Spice Girls, LOL! I will admit I liked the song 2 Become 1 but I pretty much thought they were beyond corny! Maybe Im alone here but most of the people I knew didn't like them and I was 15/16 when they were super duper popular so its not like I was old! Im not saying they weren't popular because clearly they were but Im sure if a lot of groups came back to do a reunion tour they would sell out quickly like that too! Give Nsync a few years! Im thinking there was another little gorup by the name of NKOTB that might have been just as popular in their days!!! :)

Not at all surprised. I was crazy obsessed with those girls in their peak (right in their target market at 19 years old now) and I for one can't wait for the reunion.

38 seconds.. That's really just incredible and unbelievable, however, it does make sense.. Spice girls were huge when they were "it" and obviously, their return is a big deal! I mean, seriously, who wasn't their fan? :D

38 seconds is just crrazzy! But it's the SPICE GIRLS and a lot of teenagers before ( who are professionals with money to spend now ) like them before so it is just like going back to the old times...

Not at all! They were a HUGE band that everybody has been waiting for to come back. It would be the same if Smashing Pumpkins did a reunion tour. They'd sell out hella fast too.

LOL wilkinsj - you're about 10 aren't you? I can tell because you've never been to a concert before otherwise you would know people sing live at concerts (unless you're Milli Vanilli but you're much too young to know anything about that).. haha How cute :) Oh and they didn't disappear quickly, they were around for years. BarJar1122, I think maybe you were too young to remember how long they were around for, how much merchandise they released, how many singles they released, etc etc. You have to understand that people who are in their 20's now will remember all too well how much we all loved the Spice Girls back in our teens.

Not surprised at all - they're only one of the biggest music groups in modern day history. I can't think of any group that would sell out quicker to be honest.

Or as one one commentor (curiousasheck) on the Huffington Post site said: "Promoters dumped all the tickets to second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth tier ticket brokers in 38 seconds who will now sell all the tickets to "fans" for $500 to $6000 a piece. Thats what a "sellout" is these days." Let's hope for the best. I believe a few of the girls would really appreciate being on the stage again and making some more money. I sure would.

For the Spice Girl's sake, I hope the tickets really did sell out. This seems like a very clever PR gimmick to make people think the concert is sold out and that they better hurry and buy some tickets somewhere, otherwise, they'e going to be left out. If that is the case, it means there are plenty of tickets to be sold and that the tickets may not be moving as much as they would like them too. Good luck!!!
