The Spice Girls are heading to Croke Park in May 2019. 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.
It was also recently announced by the band’s manager Simon Fuller that there is an animated moie about the nadn in the works.
He told Billboard: “What’s coming next is that we are going to be doing lots of exciting things. We’ll be making an animated movie and there’s lots of exciting plans to come.”
Speaking of the amazing response to the tour, with the Dublin date selling out in mere minutes, he added:
“To be honest with you, while it was clearly phenomenal, they are such an awesome phenomenon I expected it…The last tour we did seven or eight years ago the demand was equal, if not maybe even more. It’s a global phenomenon. They’re more timely now than ever and it’s fantastic.”
