- Story Text: British pop band the Spice Girls said on Monday they would reunite for a British tour next June although there was no mention of whether Victoria Beckham would take part.
â€œBreaking Spice news,â€ the band said on Twitter. â€œTickets on sale Saturday 10.30 am.â€
Formed in 1994, the group racked up album sales in the tens of millions with hits including â€œWannabeâ€ and â€œSay Youâ€™ll Be Thereâ€ that topped charts across the globe.
The band originally had five members: Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Mel B (Scary Spice) and Geri Horner, formerly Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice).
In a video accompanying the tweet, there was footage of each member apart from Beckham above a ticker headline: â€œFriendship never ends: Spice Girls announce shock UK tour.â€
â€œItâ€™s just the four of us that are fully confirmed,â€ Mel B told ITVâ€™s â€œLoose Womenâ€ show. â€œBut ... Vic might join us at some point.â€
In 1998, Halliwell walked out and the remaining members went their separate ways after releasing the album â€œForeverâ€ in 2000. The group reformed for a tour in 2007-2008 and had hinted at a further reunion in 2018.
â€œ2 Become 1â€ was the Spice Girlsâ€™ third single, and was the UK Christmas number one single in 1996.
