Rumor has it the Spice Girls are getting ready to embark on a stadium tour in the United Kingdom but there's a catch — Victoria Beckham (a.k.a. "Posh Spice") won't be tagging along for the ride.
According to The Sun, who broke the news Friday (November 2), the iconic English pop girl group will reunite for a limited, eight-show stadium tour next summer. The British news outlet reports the Spice Girls will make the tour announcement via a secretly-recorded video message on Monday (November 5).
Additionally, the group's participating members — Mel B ("Scary Spice"), Emma Bunton ("Baby Spice"), Mel C ("Sporty Spice"), and Geri Horner ("Ginger Spice") — will reportedly appear for a television interview on Jonathan Ross ITV show.
If the speculations are true, it'll be their first tour in over a decade.
Ever since they closed the London Olympics in 2012, their last gig as a five-some, whispers of a Spice Girls comeback have been following the musicians for years. Though the prospect seemed likely when all the bandmates — Beckham included — met up in February to share "some incredible new opportunities" were in store.
"We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching-up and reminiscing about the amazing times we have spent together," the women captioned a group shot posted to Horner's Instagram at the time. "We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of The Spice Girls, while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations."
