Spice Girls to reunite for 2019 UK tour – minus Victoria Beckham
The Spice Girls are officially reunited and headed back on tour – minus one of their founding members.
The Spice Girls' official Twitter account announced Monday morning that Melanie "Sporty Spice" Chisholm, Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton, Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown and Geri "Ginger Spice" Horner will be teaming up for the Spice World 2019 U.K. Tour, consisting of six U.K. dates kicking off June 1 at Manchester Etihad Stadium and ending June 15 with a show at London's famed Wembley Stadium.
Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham, the fifth member of the Spice Girls, will not be joining her former bandmates on tour.
In an Instagram post Monday, Beckham wished the girls "so much love and fun" on the upcoming tour, but did not say why she wasn't joining them.
"Today marks a special day for the girls as they announce the first tour dates since we performed together in 2012! I won't be joining my girls on stage again but being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish them so much love and fun as they go back on tour next year," she wrote. "I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time!"
Tickets go on sale Saturday, Nov. 10 at 10:30 a.m. EST via Ticketmaster.
The '90s favorites performed as a four-piece for two years after Horner quit the band in 1998. They officially split in 2000 before reuniting at the 2012 London Olympics.
