Spice Girls Announce U.K. Stadium Tour, Victoria Beckham Confirms She Won’t Be Joining
The Spice Girls will be taking the stage again, according to Mel B, who confirmed the news on Monday. The 44-year-old singer assured her, Geri Horner, Emma Bunton and Mel Chisholm will be touring stadiums without Victoria Beckham in the summer of 2019. The Scary Spice said about the tour,
Yeah we are. Very exciting. [We’ve known for] like five, six months now, it’s all, the wheels are in motion, tickets go on sale on Friday. Pressure is on now, hopefully you’re going to buy some tickets.
Reports claim Beckham won’t be joining this go round due it not being the right time for the businesswoman, mother, and wife. According to Mel B,
It’s just the four of us, but she [Victoria Beckham] might join us at some point. I hope so. I think it would be a shame if she didn’t. I don’t know why [she said no]. She’s got a full on life with her commitments and the fashion line and her kids so she’s not committing just yet. I’m hoping it’ll change.
Beckham confirmed her absence on the upcoming tour via Instagram on Monday. In a photo with Homer, Bunton, Chisholm, and Brown, the mother wrote,
Today marks a special day for the girls as they announce the first tour dates since we performed together in 2012! I won’t be joining my girls on stage again but being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish them so much love and fun as they go back on tour next year. I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time! X vb #spicegirls #friendshipneverends
The stadium tour will be strictly in the U.K. and will consist of six dates scheduled to kick off in June.
