It looks like The Spice Girls are taking their reunion tour to the Land Down Under.
During their final reunion tour in the UK, The Spice Girls made a surprise announcement. The girls are moving their sellout reunion tour to Australia. After their final performance at the Wembley Stadium in London, Mel B told the crowd:
“We’ll see you in February in Australia.”
Their last performance was held last Saturday evening. Although Scary Spice hinted that we can expect to see them February next year, we’ll have to wait for the details of the live dates. Hopefully, the official announcement will come sooner than later.
When their Australian tour pushes through, it will be the girl group’s first performance in the country.
Wow wow wow. Wembley…what an incredible way to finish #SpiceWorld2019. We are so grateful to everyone who made this tour possible and of course every single one of you who came out and sang with us ✌🏼💜

The Spice Girls’ last UK show came to an emotional close. Geri Horner (Ginger Spice) publicly apologized for leaving the group back in 1998. CNN reports that 70,000 fans were witness to Horner saying:
“I need to say something I should have said a long time ago. I’m sorry. I’m sorry I left. I was just being a brat. It is so good to be back with the girls that I love.”
Fans were surprised and endeared by Horner’s apology. Back in 1998, Horner stated health issues as her reason for quitting the popular girl band. She made the decision two years prior to the band’s indefinite hiatus. The band’s last reunion tour show for this year was attended by high-profile personalities. One of the most notable was Grammy winner, Adele who was seen fangirling during the event.
