Spice Girls (sans Posh) reunite for stadium tour

The Spice Girls - minus Victoria Beckham - have confirmed they are reuniting for a UK stadium tour. 

Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Melanie Chisholm will play six stadium dates next summer, with support from Jess Glynne.

The dates are: Manchester Etihad Stadium (June 1); Coventry Ricoh Stadium (June 3); Sunderland Stadium Of Light (June 6); Edinburgh BT Murrayfield Stadium (June 8); Bristol Ashton Gate Stadium (June 10) and London Wembley Stadium (June 15). Tickets go on sale at 10.30am on Saturday. Twickets is the official resale partner. 

Bunton said: “It’s time to spice things up all over again!!!!! I can’t wait to perform to our forever supporting fans and a whole new spice generation! Love you all!”

Mel B said: “I’ve said it sooo many times I’m beside myself it’s actually happening yipppeeee. I’m now properly screaming it from every rooftop - me and my girls will see you all on stage!!” 

Melanie C said: "Reminiscing with the girls about how much fun we had, made me feel like it was the right time to do it all over again!" 

"I am so excited, together we celebrate girl power with our fans and the next generation and everyone is welcome! Hold tight it's gonna be fun xx," said Horner.

The management of the Spice Girls is being handled by Modest! Management and XIX Entertainment.

Beckham will not be joining the rest of the group on tour due to "business commitments". She said: "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!"

The Spice Girls last performed together at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics and last toured in 2008.
