The British pop group that brough girl power in the late 1990s is coming back but not like how it was. The Spice Girls are reuniting after months of speculation…it’s just going to miss two members of the quintet that “Spice Up Your Life” with the rebirth of the British Invasion.
The group will be made up of Mel Brown, Emma Bunton, and Geri Halliwell (Scary, Baby, and Ginger Spice respectfully). Victoria Beckham and Mel Chisholm aren’t going to be apart of this reunion due to both doing “other ventures.” This is media talk for “we too old for that ish.” I know what you are thinking: How can it be a reunion if it’s only three spices out of five? Well this is actually a very common things. Most of the time, they get a new a name but it’s not like the Spice Girls to make sense. They will be actually looking for two new members to join them for this new tour. Not the reunion tour we would have wanted but it okay.
How did this start you may ask? Well, I’ll tell you. It started with this video that the trio posted as it was the 20th anniversary of their first single, and one of their biggest hit, “Wannabe.”
From the sounds of it, it sounds like a Spice Girls Tribute/Cover band. I don’t think this is a very good idea if they are singing the hits, which they haven’t said if it’s the band is back together full-time or it’s going to be like the last time they returned (one tour). I get that they want to give the fans what they want but the fans want all five spices. It’s like getting a half of your favorite drink. It’s still good but it’s not as enjoyable of it. I don’t see this being that great as it seems. If it was all five spices then it would be the best.
