The Spice Girls Plan For Reunion Next Year – Reportedly Including Victoria Beckham
SPICE GIRLS TO REUNITE IN 2018
The last time the British girl group got together was for a special performance at the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony. Now, hits like “Wannabe” and “Spice Up Your Life” will be seen on stage again, as all the former band members are excited to get back together in 2018 for a one-off special and album.
“The five of them have been locked in secret talks since the summer, and finally they are all on-board for a 2018 reunion,” a source shares. “As it stands, they will be working together on a series of projects, which will include an album and a TV special celebrating the Spice Girls. Getting Victoria to agree has been a coup for everyone involved, given she has always been the person holding back on a reunion,” the source added.
A rep for Beckham, aka Posh Spice, released a statement about the rumors: “Victoria has said many times, she loved her time in the Spice Girls and continues to be full of affection for the girls and the happy memories they created together, however her future focus is her family and fashion brand.”
Reports indicate that Mel C, aka Sporty Spice, has been in talks with the band’s former manager Simon Fuller over the past few months to get the other members on board.
Previous attempts to reunite the band failed, particularly the concert gig scheduled for July 2017 that never occurred. Mel B, aka Scary Spice, Halliwell, aka Ginger Spice, and Bunton, aka Baby Spice, tried to set up that concert, and then eventually tried to start their own band, GEM. It ultimately lost steam after Halliwell got pregnant, but a track called “Song For Her” was recorded and leaked online.
