But they told us friendship is forever!!!
We're VERY sad to report that the Spice Girls have been forced into retirement after a failed attempt to plan a second reunion world tour that was set for 2014
Following Victoria Beckham's public refusal to tour with the girls, remaining members Mel B., Mel C., Geri Halliwell, and Emma Bunton made the decision to throw in their leopard print and platform boots out of fear that they would be unable to sell tix and merch without the beloved Posh Spice.
“Led by Geri, the girls had been plotting a world tour as a four-piece band, culminating in a final night at Wembley Stadium. The other girls had been initially up for it but once they started having meetings they realised the capital wasn’t there. They also feared a general apathy from the public if Posh wasn’t in the fray, leading to dates not selling out. Victoria’s obviously a big pull when it comes to the fans and she also guarantees press coverage. Although they all desperately wanted to do it, they couldn’t take the risk of it being a flop – the Spice Girls could only ever go out on a high. On the last tour Victoria cut a huge amount of costs by getting sponsors, organising the designers to sort the outfits and she even persuaded Jacko and Madonna’s choreographer Jamie King to get involved.”
What a pop nightmare!!!
Sure, the tour wouldn't be as big of an extravaganza without divalicious Victoria, but we know PLENTY of people that would still love to spice up their lives without her!
Even if we're sad to hear that we'll NEVER see the 90s icons on stage again, the girl power will live on in us forever!
Viva la SPICE!!!!
