Sources tell ET that the Spice Girls, minus “Posh Spice” Victoria Beckham, will embark on a limited, eight-show stadium tour in the U.K. next year. According to the sources, the tour is scheduled to be announced on Monday.
Emma Bunton was on Heart radio Monday morning with her old co-host Jamie Theakson who grilled her about the rumours and she all but admitted it.
“Don’t look me in the eyes Jamie Theakston,” she said. “I can’t [give anything away]. You’re not going to break me this morning.
“Everything will be announced just after three o’clock today on social media,” Bunton revealed. “You can go to @SpiceGirls. Please, don’t look at me anymore because I might just blurt it out. I’m so excited. I just want it out there.”
ET has reached out to reps for the Spice Girls for comment.
Rumours of the iconic British girl group reuniting and heading on tour began after Beckham, Bunton, Mel C. and Mel B. reunited at Geri Halliwell’s home in London in February. Following their meet up, the group released a statement expressing how they were ready to “explore some incredible new opportunities together.”
“We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching-up and reminiscing about the amazing times we have spent together. We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for The Spice Girls,” the five women said in a statement to ET at the time. “The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together. We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of The Spice Girls, while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations.”
Following the reunion and statement, Beckham remained adamant that the group was not going to be performing shows any time soon. Her statements seemed to contradict Mel B, who frequently commented on the likelihood of the Spice Girls returning to the stage.
“We will be doing stuff this year together,” the “America’s Got Talent” judge told ET in March.
Then in September, Halliwell, Mel B, Mel C and Bunton — minus Beckham — shared a photo while FaceTiming each other, which only intensified speculations that they had something up their sleeves.
The Spice Girls announced on Twitter that tickets will go on sale Saturday at 10:30 a.m. but be warned: They will not be cheap.
