Spice Girls Announce 2019 Reunion Tour Without Posh Spice
The legendary Brit-pop girl group has answered every 90s kids' nostalgia-filled prayers and is ready to inject the world with a fresh dose of girl power we haven't seen since they took to the stage at the 2012 London Summer Olympics. Today, Nov. 5, the Spice Girls announced they are reuniting in a U.K. for their first tour in a decade, yet without Posh Spice aka entrepreneur/fashion designer Victoria Beckham.
Geri Horner, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm and Emma Bunton, perhaps best known by their stage names Ginger Spice, Scary Spice, Sporty Spice and Baby Spice, respectively, are ready to bring their message of positivity and female empowerment back to their home country. The four members of the group are set to tour the U.K. with six dates in June 2019.
Fans have hoped for a Spice Girls reunion—be that new music, a TV special or a tour—for years, with speculation ramping up over the last year. In October 2017 Horner said in an interview; "I really pushed to get everyone back together. I still love the girls and there are other bits and bobs in the pipeline." The most recent time the group performed together was at the London Olympics in 2012, with all five members performing a medley of their hits on stage. The last time the group toured together was in 2007 for a reunion tour, seven years after they parted ways.
While Beckham is not part of the lineup for the reunion tour due to "business commitments" with her namesake fashion brand and other entrepreneurial endeavors, she did share a message of positive wishes to her groupmates:
"Being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish my girls so much love and fun as they go back on tour, I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time!"
While the rest of the group—and their fans—would love for a full-force reunion with all five members, the show must go on. As Horner shared, "I am so excited, together we celebrate girl power with our fans and the next generation and everyone is welcome."
