The “WANNABE” hitmakers are back to spice up our lives! Ginger Spice (Geri Horner) 46, Sporty Spice (Mel C) 44, Baby Spice (Emma Bunton) 42, and Scary Spice (Mel B) 43 are heading back on the road – minus Victoria Beckham (sorry/not sorry) as announced few days ago. The show will be supported by the super talented female artist Jess Glynne. Do you want more girl power?
After the band’s UK tour sold out, the ladies said: “We are beyond excited to be reuniting next year for a stadium tour! Bringing girl power and our message of friendship and love back to the stage feels more relevant than ever. We hope everyone can join us for one big Spice Girls party!”

The group announced the Dublin gig after fans took to social media requesting them to come to Ireland when a date wasn’t announced.
They said: “IRELAND… we’ve seen all your messages and tweets so we’re VERY happy to announce a #SpiceWorld2019 show for you at Dublin’s Croke Park on May 24th.
“Tickets go on sale next Thurs at 9am. SEE YOU SOON x”.
Mel C wrote this morning: “So excited to be back where it started in 98! #Spiceworld2019 tickets for Dublin on sale now! X”
Tickets for the 2019 concert in Croke Park were priced at between €59.50 – €191.00 and went on sale at 9 am this morning.
MCD Productions announced at just after 11.30am that the standard tickets are now gone.
Some people went on Twitter to share their rage with the website, which struggled with the enormous amount of users at the same time. Even before these tickets sold out, fans had already gone online to vent frustration at the sale process.
@TicketmasterIre I feel so annoyed this morning. Trying to get tickets for the Spice Girls in Dublin and actually got my 3 tickets and as soon as I clicked the pay button your system stole them off me. How in the world is that a fair system?? pic.twitter.com/btXLceK1yY

It is huge moment for Irish Spice Girls fans, who haven’t had a chance to see the band play here since 1998 when they played the Point Theatre during their Spice World Tour.
