Honestly, our queer hearts are full to the brim with happiness and we can’t wait to live our childhood fantasy of finally getting to see the Spice Girls in concert. Not only that, the Dublin date is the first stop on their stadium tour!
This is their first Irish date in 21 years and they will be the first girl group to headline Croke Park.

Announcing the additional date to their stadium tour, the Spice Girls (minus Posh Spice) 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 era-defining, history-making, best-selling female group of all time are bringing girl power back in full force as they reunite on stage for the first time since the London 2012 Olympics, hitting stadiums across the UK and Ireland and proving you never give up on the good times.
HERE’S THE STORY FROM A-Z… After their iconic 1996 debut single ‘Wannabe’ topped the charts in 37 countries, Spice Girls’ debut album ‘Spice’ went on to sell more than 31 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling album of all time by a female group. The girls have gone on to sell more than 85 million records, releasing three studio albums and 13 singles and winning a host of awards including a BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music.
Because of her business commitments, Victoria won’t be joining the girls on tour, but will always be one of the Spice Girls and remains aligned with Emma, Mel B, Melanie C and Geri in preserving their unique legacy.
Speaking about the 2019 stadium tour, Victoria said, “being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish my girls so much love and fun as they go back on tour, I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time!”.
Spice Girls will play Dublin’s Croke Park on Friday 24th May 2019, tickets for which go on sale this Thursday 22nd November at 9 am on ticketmaster.ie
