The greatest girl group that ever lived will reunite and re-inject some Girl Power into your world next year, when they return for a brand new world tour.
That’s right — The Sun is reporting that Emma, Geri, Mel B and Mel C will reform The Spice Girls into a foursome without Victoria, who insists she’s far too busy with family and her fashion brand to join the others on tour.
But that’s alright! The girls have been hinting at this exact arrangement since they reunited for a performance at the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony in London. Their entrance on LED-covered black cabs was nothing short of iconic, like the performance that followed, which proved the ladies are more than capable of a huge comeback with or without Victoria.
“This will be one of the biggest pop reunions of all time,” said The Sun’s Spice source. “There is a huge demand for the Spice Girls to get back together, especially with the nostalgia around the two-decade anniversary of their first release next summer.”
“Mel B flew into London last month to secretly agree the plan with the other three girls. They should each make more than ten million pounds from this,” they added.

The girls are reportedly in talks with tour promoters to reunite before the 20-year anniversary of “Wannabe” next year. There’s also no beef between Victoria and the others — though she declined to join the reunion tour, the door will remain open if she changes her mind.
“She is far too busy running her fashion brand and looking after her family to get back on a stage,” said the source. “She also feels that they left the stage on an amazing high with their Olympics performance and worries a reunion could tarnish their legacy.”
Before the 2012 Olympics, The Spice Girls reunited for a 2007 world tour that was cut short due to “family and personal commitments.”
