To say that the tickets to the Spice Girls Reunion Tour are selling like hotcakes would be an understatement. In fact, they’re selling out venues so quickly, promoters are begging and pleading for additional dates. And the 5 ladies from the UK are happy to oblige.
With the initial dates selling out in a matter of seconds, the “Wannabe” singers have added additional dates at the O2 Arena in London. Now, Geri, Emma, Victoria, Melanie, and Melanie are performing on December 15, 16, 18, as well as January 2, 15, and 16.
With the Spice Girls comeback tour preparations in full swing, producers of the show have announced that Jennifer Lopez has signed on to be the support act for all of the US dates.
And you can chalk it up to “Girl Power.” The “Waiting for Tonight” diva revealed that even before she knew the British babes, she admired them. Lopez told press, “Even before we were friends, (Victoria) was always my favorite.”
When Spice Girl Melanie Brown takes the stage for the fifth season of Dancing With The Stars, she’ll be sporting the designs of her “Spice Sister” Victoria Beckham.
According to Scary Spice, Posh is just dying to create a dazzling wardrobe for her dance show appearances. "Victoria is going to come to one of the shows. She was excited. She said, 'I have to design your costumes. We've got to sort that out!' "
All five of the Spice Girls came together on Thursday (June 28) to announce their long-awaited reunion as a "thank you" to their fans. The day marked the first time that all five have appeared in public together since Ginger Spice walked out nine years ago.
"Imagine you got divorced and you’ve got back together with your ex-husband," Geri said of being reunited with her band mates. Meanwhile, Victoria quipped: "She just appreciates the fact we’ve let her back in."
Despite conflicting reports, it seems that Mel Chisholm (aka Mel C, Sporty Spice) is interested in having a reunion tour.
“The singer had debunked the idea and claimed it wasn’t conceivable to go on tour with Emma Bunton (aka Baby Spice) and Melanie Brown (Mel B, Scary Spice), who are pregnant. The other two members, Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), also are involved with their families.”
