Ladies and gentleman, grab your Union Jacks and platform shoes — because the Spice Girls could be going on tour in 2016!
Mel B. sort of confirmed the news in an interview with Billboard when talking about the girls’ music.
Check out the confirming excerpts below:
Do your kids ever sing your Spice Girls songs?
Yeah, they do actually. My youngest does but I think she just does it because she thinks it’s funny.
Is the 4-year-old aware that it’s you?
She’s seen the videos because my 8-year-old plays it and goes, “Oh my God, that’s mummy!” And my 4-year-old is like, “no it’s not.” So they’re kind of aware. But to them I’m just mom who has an exciting job so they get to come on set, see everything. They know we’re possibly going on tour next year so they get to meet all the other girls. So it’s lovely.
So the tour is potentially happening?
Potentially, yeah. Once we sort everything out we make an announcement, but right now we’re just figuring it all out. Next year is your 20 anniversary so we’re really just trying to make sure something happens.
Twenty years is a long time — does it feel that long ago?
Hmm. I remember things like it was yesterday and we’re still really good friends, but it definitely still feels like we’ve done stuff a long time ago because music has changed so much. But we had so much fun and we did the Olympics a few years ago. We’re going to have fun if everything works out — which hopefully it will — for next year.
Is it just conflicting schedules that’s holding it up?
We’re figuring stuff out. As soon as we figure it out we’ll tell every detail, but until then there’s not much to say. It’s like when you’re dating somebody and everyone is forcing you to get married. It’s like, “We’re getting married! Just give us a second to figure it out!” [laughs]
We’ll definitely be there! Let’s just hope Victoria is down with the plan.
