Our ’90s selves are screaming! The Spice Girls are getting back together for a reunion tour, and according to TMZ, they’ll be making stops in the US. Sources told the publication that they’ll be hitting the stage in England first before flying across the pond. Unfortunately, they have no plans on recording any new music and the rumors about a Las Vegas residency are false.
On Friday, Feb. 2, Victoria Beckham took to Instagram to share the ultimate #FBF — a photo with her fellow Spice Girls: Mel B, Emma Bunton, Melanie C, and Geri Halliwell. “Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!! X Exciting x.”
In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, the group said, “We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching up and reminiscing about the amazing times we have spent together. We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for the Spice Girls. The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together.” YAS. YAS. And YAS.
Immediately, people began commenting on Victoria’s snap, and (unsurprisingly), most reacted like how I did when I first found out. “My heart can’t take it!!!” one person wrote. Another added, “MAKE IT LAST FOREVER FRIENDSHIP NEVER ENDS ?.” A third chimed in, “Stop it, stop it, stop it! Tell me we are getting the reunion tour of our dreams?!”
Last week, The Sun reported that a reunion tour is in the works — pre-confirmation — with each member reportedly being paid a staggering $14 million each. NBD. “This is the pop reunion no one thought would ever happen again,” a source told the newspaper. “But after a long period of negotiation, Victoria agreed the time is right to work on new projects this year.”
The last time all five women were together was at the 2012 Olympics in London. Two years later, Victoria addressed rumors of another reunion tour, telling Spain’s Vanity Fair that she “won’t ever do it again.” The 43-year-old added, “Doing the Olympics was an incredible honor. I was so proud to do it, proud to be British. That was a perfect time to say, ‘That’s great. Thank you to everybody, but no more. Sometimes you’ve got to know when it’s time to leave the party… the Spice Girls were successful because we celebrated women. That’s why I do what I do today.” Clearly, she’s changed her ~tune!~ BRB, buying tickets ASAP.
