Your inner 90’s queen can rejoice: the Spice Girls are definitely, probably most likely, gearing up for tour of the U.S and Great Britain.
On Wednesday, TMZ reported that all five singers met with ex-manager Simon Fuller to figure out the logistics for a tour starting late summer 2018.
“We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching-up and reminiscing about the amazing times we spent together,” the ladies said in a group statement. “We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for The Spice Girls,” the band said in a statement. “The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together. We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of The Spice Girls, while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations.”

According to TMZ, Victoria Beckham. a.k.a. Posh Spice, was holdout but now, she’s “fully on board.” It was the Time’s Up and #MeToo movement that finally convinced her to reunite with her former group.
“[Those] movements have shone a light on how powerful we can be when we work together to bring about change,” she told the Daily Mirror. “That is incredibly inspiring. My career has always focused on empowering and celebrating women, so the momentum that these movements brought only makes me even more determined and passionate in my beliefs.”
TMZ suggests however that Posh decided to join the reunion because “because she wants to step out of David Beckham’s shadow and do her own thing again.”
Unfortunately, the gals won’t be releasing any new music, but there will be “merchandising opportunities” connected with the tour.
Since the news came out, fans have lost their minds on Twitter.
