When it was announced last month that the Spice Girls were about to make a comeback, there were a lot of questions marks. Some outlets reported that the fivesome would just be recording new music, while some reported that they would be going on a reunion tour. The general consensus was the former, that no tour was on the way, but we could expect new material from the 90’s pop band sometime in the near future. Now it’s starting to appear as if none of that is going to happen.
Speaking to The Sun at The Prince’s Trust Awards in London on Tuesday, the former Sporty Spice, Melanie Chisholm, said that “Victoria has been quite vocal, it’s really not something she wants to do at this time.” She was talking about Victoria Beckham, the former Posh Spice who became a fashion designer and married David Beckham, not wanting to go on a reunion tour. The group wouldn’t consider appearing as a foursome either, as Melanie also said that “I think it has to be all five, so it’s tricky.”
So what was the get-together all about at Geri Horner’s home in England last month then? After all that’s where all the rumors started from. According to Melanie “We’re not talking about new music or going out on the road together at this time. It was just getting together to reignite all the things that we have had together and to work with (manager) Simon (Fuller).”
Despite any rumours to the contrary, it seems like the Spice Girls won’t be getting back together anytime soon. The last time they appeared together was during the closing ceremonies for the London Olympics in 2012. While we can hope that wasn’t the final time, we’re better off just waiting until official word is given and not believe a bunch of speculation.
