So sad!

The Spice Girls’ musical Viva Forever will be saying goodbye to London’s West End in the next eight weeks! The show, featuring the girl group’s biggest hits, wasn’t good enough to make the cut and will be closing at a loss of close to $8 million! YIKES!

The five released a joint statement upon the announcement of the musical’s cancellation:

“We want to thank the cast and all the fans for their support, and although Viva Forever won't continue in the West End we are thrilled that the thousands of people who came to the show had as much fun as we did.”

Melanie C and Emma Bunton turned to Twitter to show some love to fans and all those involved in the making of the show:

The show's producer Judy Craymer also added:

“The show has evolved since we first opened and is now brighter, lighter and funnier, but despite the wonderful audiences and extremely positive feedback we just can’t make it work… I'm so proud of everyone involved in this production. Viva Forever! may be taking it’s leave for now in the West End but the legacy of Spice Girls will never fade.”

RIP Viva Forever! But don't you worry, ladies! We'll still Wannabe you!!

    Those four EXTREMELY TALENTED women look GREAT; thank GOD they got rid of the talentless POSING ONE.

    It has nothing to do with the spice girls songs as to why it failed. The plot of this play was stupid.

    I'm really sad about it
    I though they'd go to broadway.
    I hope the girls reunite for a tour.
    Spice Girls mean so much to me.
