The Spice Girls are back and have confirmed dates for their highly-anticipated 2019 stadium tour. The group have teased the idea of another comeback for some time and confirmed the rumours earlier this week on Heart FM radio. It has been revealed that they will embark on a six date tour of the UK next June with support from singer-songwriter Jess Glynne. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 10:30am on Saturday, 10 November.
The legendary Girl Power band originally reunited in 2007 for a global comeback tour following a seven year hiatus. Members Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Melanie Chisholm will head out on tour next year, though they will be without Victoria Beckham.
Speaking on Loose Women at lunchtime today, Mel B said she hopes Beckham might change her mind about joining the tour.
She confirmed that only four of them were signed up and said: “She’s got a full-on life with all of her work commitments and her fashion line and her kids, so, she’s just kind of not committing just yet.”
The iconic quintet have had a multitude of hits, reaching No. 1 on the UK singles charts nine times with tracks ‘Wannabe’, ‘Say You’ll Be There’, ‘2 Become 1’, ‘Mama/Who Do You Think You Are’, ‘Spice Up Your Life’, ‘Too Much’, ‘Viva Forever’, ‘Goodbye’, and ‘Holler’.
The group’s debut album, Spice, sold more than 31 million albums worldwide making it the best-selling album by a female group in history. Follow up albums Spiceworld and Forever also moved millions contributing to their worldwide success and title as the best-selling female group of all time.
