Spice Girls: Mel B says she will ‘make sure’ group tours in 2023 | Ents & Arts News
The Spice Girls will reunite for a tour in 2023, Mel B has said.
The singer said the Spice Girls‘ plans to do another tour were interrupted by the pandemic.
Mel B, real name Melanie Brown, said she would “make sure” a tour happens in a couple of years.
While the group previously reunited in 2019, Victoria Beckham did not join them.
“We did our last tour and Victoria respectfully ducked out, and you have to respect when someone doesn’t want to go on tour,” Mel B said.
She added: “I’m always pushing to have a Spice Girls reunion and we were in talks last year but then COVID hit so it pushed everyone’s plans.
“I think we’re hopefully on the same page together.
“They’re going to kill me for saying this. We’re hoping, especially me – if it has anything to do with me, which it will have because I’m the driving force and will make sure it happens – to tour in 2023.”
Fellow bandmate Mel C has previously said Beckham would like to perform with the group at Glastonbury.
While standing in as presenter of Channel 4 show Steph’s Packed Lunch, Mel B revealed what nicknames she would give to the Spice Girls today.
“Victoria has a crazy sense of humour, so she’d be Sarky Spice, as in sarcastic,” she said.
“Baby Spice is actually quite a raunchy, sassy-pants, so she’d definitely be Lustful Spice.
“Melanie is a perfectionist, so it’s Perfect Spice. Geri… where do I start? Stop-wearing-white-and-wear-the-Union-Jack Spice.
“And me? I’d be Fabulous Spice.”
When the group reunited without Victoria Beckham in 2019, they toured the UK and Ireland.
