Update: On Feb. 10, Victoria Beckham confirmed the Spice Girls are not reuniting for a tour. "I'm not going on tour. The girls aren't going on tour," she clarified to Vogue. "It was so great to see the girls. We had such a fun lunch. It was really, really, really lovely. I still speak to them all individually, but for us all to get together was really lovely." However, Victoria did tease that the ladies discussed the possibility of releasing merchandise related to the iconic girl group in the near future.
"There's something so strong in the message of what the Spice Girls stood for. What is that in the future? What does that look like? We were just bouncing ideas around. Brainstorming," she shared. So there you have it, straight from the source. There's always the Spice Girls' live-in-concert DVDs for those of us who truly wanted a reunion tour.
However, according to Mel B, a Spice Girls tour is happening. On June 28, Mel B appeared on the Today show and declared, "We are touring!" "I still do [love performing]. I'm the only one that keeps on saying, 'We're gonna be performing,' which we are gonna be performing. Finally they got it together," she said before addressing Victoria's previous comments about them not going on tour. "She's always bloody saying that. Stop it! We are touring! Yes, we are going to be doing performances together, for sure." Hmm . . . so, what is the truth?
Original story: The Spice Girls are officially back together! TMZ reported on Wednesday that the girl group — which consists of Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, and Victoria Beckham — will be embarking on a reunion tour of the US and UK. The ladies recently met up for a meeting with their former manager, Simon Fuller, which sources say was for "rough planning" of the tour, which is rumored to kick off this Summer.
The group was originally formed back in 1994, but it wasn't until two years later that their debut single, "Wannabe," smashed charts around the globe. After a meteoric rise to fame — and one iconic feature film — Halliwell quit the group in 1998. The remaining four members continued their tour without her, but it wasn't long until the group disbanded for good. In August 2012, they reunited to perform a medley of hits during the closing ceremony at the London Olympics, and they have been open about the fact that they're all still good friends.
While the group has no plans to record new music, they will reportedly be working on "merchandising opportunities" connected with the tour. After you search the internet for a Union Jack minidress and platform sneakers, get caught up on what each of the Spice Girls has been up to since the '90s.
