"Spice Girls" Return (VIDEO)
I really wanna zig-zig-ha! I wanna zig-zig-ha all over again!
The rumors are true! Scary, Baby, Ginger, Posh and Sporty - the award-winning all-female pop-phenomenon Spice Girls are coming back for an 11-show round-the-globe reunion tour to commence in Los Angeles on December 7, 2007 and close in Buenos Aires on January 24, 2008.
According to reports, Mel Chisholm (Sporty) was the only one of the girls who was opposing the reunion, but had a change of heart recently. Geri Halliwell (Ginger) who generated headlines in 1998 with her much-publicized departure due to alleged differences with Melanie Brown (Scary) is also on board.
The group broke records with the first two blockbuster albums Spice (1996) and Spiceword (1997) generating sales of over 53 million records worldwide. Their final album Forever (2000) released by the 4 remaining girls failed to match the massive success of their previous outings.
Earlier today, the girls arrived for the photo call at the Greenwich Royal Observatory in London in separate cars to formally announce their reunion and the upcoming world tour. The girls however stressed this would be a one-off event and they would not be reuniting for good. Bummer.
