Posh Spice Says Yes, the Spice Girls Are Reuniting, But No, That Doesn’t Include a Tour
Beckham told Vogue, “I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour.” This probably won’t surprise anyone. After all, Beckham has long been the hold-out in previous reunion attempts. Last year, Beckham dismissed a reunion tour, saying “It is not happening. At some point you’ve gotta know when it’s time to say, ‘That was great.’”
(However, in last year’s almost-reunion, Mel “Scary Spice” B was the hold-out. That sait, it wasn’t likely out of any drama; Mel B had just lost her father.)
In fact, Beckham didn’t have much to say about what the Spice Girls tour-less reunion would look like. She told Vogue:
[The reunion is] a positive thing. You know, there’s so much bad stuff going on, and the Spice Girls were about fun and celebrating individuality. I think there’s so much that the brand can do, and it’s such a positive message for young kids. What does that look like in the future? It’s not me in a catsuit.
Beckham also joked that no one particularly wanted to see a sequel to Spice World, the star-studded comedy from 1997. She said:
Is that what you really, really want? I remember that movie. I was so upset when they made me wear that tight little army dress. And Harper, who’s only watched Spice World once, says, “Mummy, I love that bit when everyone’s in the really cool clothes and you’re in the tight little army dress!”
While not revealing any concrete plans, Beckham says the once-and-future Spice Girls are “bouncing ideas around, brainstorming.” With luck that will mean a new album and not just a best-of with one or two dodgy new tracks.
