Spice Girls announce comeback tour without one key member

Spice Girls 2012 Olympics

The Spice Girls have announced their comeback today.

Last week Mel sparked controversy by being spotted dressed as Beckham for Halloween, with a sign poking fun at her absence from the tour plans.

Baby Spice Emma Bunton, Sporty Spice Mel C, Scary Spice Mel B and Ginger Spice Geri have kept details of the reunion secret for months.

This tour will be without Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, who has focused on her fashion design and modeling career since the Spice Girls split in 2000. The four band members - Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Melanie Chisholm - haven't toured together in nearly a decade and haven't performed together in years.

Spice Girls previously reunited in 2012 to perform at the closing ceremony of the London Summer Olympics.

Catch all the latest showbiz news weekdays at 7:50am on The Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show.

They will then go on to perform at the Edinburgh BT Murrayfield Stadium on June 8, the Bristol Ashton Gate Stadium on June 10 and London's Wembley Stadium on June 15.

It was also revealed on Monday that singer Jess Glynne will be opening for the band.

Trump Hints China Trade Moves for Argentina G20 After Xi Call
China has responded with retaliatory duties on $110 billion worth of USA goods. The Chinese president also said he would like to meet Trump at the G20.

The four participating members recorded a news bulletin to announce the tour. "It's just the four of us".

'I hope so, it'll be a shame if she didn't [come to the shows],' she continued.

"I think she found it a bit amusing, but at the same time [there's a] bit of a love-hate relationship", she said.

The reunion has been a long time coming; the Spice Girls first teased a reunion in 2016 for the 20th anniversary of their first hit, "Wannabe".

The girls all attempted move on from the drama by singing a tuneful A cappella version of Spice Up Your Life, before the six tour dates flashed up on screen.

The group have sold 85 million albums worldwide. The group reformed for a tour in 2007-2008 and had hinted at a further reunion in 2018.

They have won a host of awards including a BRIT Award for outstanding contribution to British music.
