The Spice Girls have announced that they will be reuniting and heading on tour in 2019, but Victoria Beckham a.k.a. Posh Spice, will not be joining them.

The foursome of Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), Melanie C (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), and Melanie B (Scary Spice) announced the dates for the upcoming tour by posting a video to their social media.

The group wrote on Twitter, “Breaking Spice news…  Tickets on sale Saturday 10.30 am.”

The video sees the four members prepare for a news broadcast from four different locations, Emma in London, Mel C in Liverpool, Mel B in Los Angeles and Gerri in everyone’s favourite holiday destination, Spice World.

Gerri and Mel B fight about Gerri being in a sparkly blue dress, while Mel C runs off to slip into a black tracksuit in true Sporty Spice style.

The dates for the upcoming shows then flash on the screen, as well as the announcement that they will be joined by special guest Jess Glynn.

The Spice Girls will also appear on the Johnathan Ross show next weekend to promote the tour.

Although UK fans are absolutely buzzing about the announcement, many Irish fans are disappointed that no Irish dates were announced.

According to The Sun, Victoria Beckham will be sitting out on this tour to stay at home and focus on her fashion business and family, although she is still expected to profit largely from the tour as she has a significant stake in the group’s image and music rights.

The Who Do You Think You Are hit-makers have not performed together since their appearance at the 2012 London Summer Olympics Closing Ceremony when they sped around the stadium in black cabs while singing hits like Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life.

This tour will be the first that the Spice Girls will embark on since 2007.
