Spice Girls Now
Is to see the Spice Girls!!!!!!!!! If like me, you've lived in hope that one day Sporty (Mel C), Baby (Emma Bunton), Scary (Mel B), Posh (Victoria Beckham), and Ginger (Geri Haliwell) Spices would get back together and do one last tour, then you're in luck my friend.
That's right, yesterday the Spice Girls announced that they would be reforming to do a World Tour. So far the tour includes 8 cities: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, London, Cologne, Madrid, Beijing, Hong Kong, Sydney, Capetown and Buenos Aires.
There have been rumours for years that the Spice Girls, who broke up in 2001, would get back together, however say the girls "the time is right".
In order to get tickets for the shows, you have to register at The Spice Girls world tour site where random names will be chosen to buy tickets. Note, you can only register for tickets once (I hope the fact that I registered 4 times doesn't mean that I'm disqualified!!! You had to go digging to find out that bit of info!).
The tour will need to include a large creche, as by the time they start touring they'll have 7 infant spices between then (Mel B has 2, Vic Beckham has 3, Geri has 1 and Emma Bunton is heavily pregnant as we speak)..
Spice Girls back then
Mock the Spice Girls all you want, but remember these women were the FIRST EVER females to grace the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Before then, it was assumed that a female on the cover wouldn't sell as many copies. And Wannabe may not have been a brilliantly written song, but hey it gave us the line "I really really really wanna zigazig ah" (lyrical genius eh?). That song went to No 1 in 31 different countries and was the biggest selling debut single of all time. Their debut album was the fastest selling British album since the Beatles in Britain. In total they've sold 55 million albums
Not that I need to justify my love of the Spice Girls to you!l!!!!
