At first she was promised she wouldn’t have to sing, and then she seemed adamant that The Spice Girls would categorically not be touring. Yet Victoria Beckham has now reportedly ‘signed on the dotted line’ for a limited number of reunion shows in the UK and the US with the Nineties pop group.
According to TMZ, all five of the original members – Victoria, Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner – have completed contracts.
Just five days ago, Victoria shot down all hopes of a ‘tour’ telling Vogue defiantly: ‘I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour.’ Victoria was in the middle of her Autumn/Winter 2018 presentation at New York Fashion Week and insisted that things were still in the ideas stage, 10 days after the five originals got together in the same room for the first time in six years.
With the high-profile meeting, which took place at Geri Horner’s Hertfordshire home, confirmed their plans to work again on new projects. Asked what their plans did involve, Victoria said that ‘there’s something so strong in the message of what the Spice Girls stood for,’ leading the five members to brainstorm about potential projects.
‘What is that in the future?’ she said. ‘What does that look like? We were just bouncing ideas around.’
Since the get together, it was believed the women were ‘genuinely excited’ about a ‘full-scale tour and starting a record label’.
