In another instalment of ‘when will we know what The Spice Girls are up to?’, word on the street is that they will be heading on the road – sort of.
The girls – Mel B, Victoria, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Melanie C – are all mothers with lives – and careers – of their own, so it’s no surprise Victoria Beckham poured cold water on the idea of a full on world tour recently, explaining the logistics are just too much.
But now it’s been reported by The Sun that while the women may not be embarking on a world tour per se, standalone shows haven’t been ruled out.
A spicy source told the publication: ‘Given the family situations, committing to a gruelling mega world tour was always a tough ask. When they got back together this month to discuss reforming, a mammoth tour was dismissed by the majority.
‘But performing together again certainly wasn’t, so the idea of playing a few huge shows in various cities was one that received the most interest.’
They added: ‘However, that’s just one aspect of the comeback they’re exploring, with the TV show element their likely priority, especially in the short-term.’
This is good news for fans who are hanging out for a solid announcement (seriously, girls, any day now…) as speculation continues to mount.
Only last week, though, Victoria seemed to dash our hopes after TMZ previously claimed they were in the ‘rough planning’ stages.
Victoria told British Vogue: ‘I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour’.
Not killing our dreams as much, Emma aka Baby Spice remained tight-lipped about the specific plans the band had together, but confirmed ‘there’s lots of opportunities for us, especially right now, needing a bit of girl power in the world’.

Still, we always have the reunion photo, after the gang gathered at Geri Horner’s house for a catch up and *cough* tour planning meeting *cough*.
