20 years after releasing their first single in 1996, the Spice Girls have announced plans to take their show on the road again with a world tour next year. Unfortunately, Victoria Beckham AKA Posh Spice, will not be performing with the British girl band.
With her focus on her entrepreneurial endeavors in fashion, Beckham reportedly cites being too busy with other projects as her reason for not participating. However, the other members, Emma Bunton, Mel B, Mel C and Geri Halliwell are gung-ho to get their show back on the road.
The last two times the quintet reunited to perform together—during their 2007 – 2008 reunion tour and then at the London Olympics closing ceremony in 2012—Victoria took part in performances.
For die hard Spice Girl fans, this news is bittersweet, as it will be a treat to see 4 out of the 5 ladies together again on stage. One can only hope that Victoria will have a last minute change of heart and decide to get with her friends.
