Bunton confirms ‘brilliant’ Spice Girls announcement

November 5, 2018 Off By admin

The Spice Girls are expected to announce they are reuniting for a UK tour next year – but without Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham.

Baby Spice Emma Bunton confirmed the reports when she was pressed for information from her Heart breakfast radio show co-host Jamie Theakston.

“Everything will be announced just after 3 o’clock today – on social media,” she said.

Theakston asked Bunton about claims a video message will be released from the band later revealing stadium tour dates for 2019.

But all Bunton would say was: “After 3 o’clock today you will find out everything. I’m just so excited. I want it out there. It will be brilliant.”

The band have not performed together since the London Olympics closing ceremony in 2012.

The Spice Girls formed in 1994 and were one of the most successful acts of the decade, with hits such as Wannabe, 2 Become 1 and Viva Forever. They went on hiatus in 2000.

They are said to be returning as a four-piece, with Scary Spice Melanie Brown, Baby Spice Emma Bunton, Ginger Spice Geri Horner and Sporty Spice Melanie Chisholm ready to tour without Beckham.

She is reportedly focusing on her fashion business.

A photo published in The Sun showed the four women posing together with Bunton giving the ‘peace’ sign and Mel B with her arms crossed.

The Spice Girls performed as a four-piece for two years after Halliwell quit the band in 1998.

Victoria and Mel C both attended Friday night’s Global Gift Gala charity fundraiser held in London.
