Mel B Teases Spice Girls Reunion Tour for 2023: ‘We’re Hoping, Especially Me'
Mel B, also known as Scary Spice, recently opened up about the possibility of a future Spice Girls reunion, which she hopes will take place in 2023.
According to the 46-year-old, she is always pushing for the group to get together again and revealed that last year there were talks of a reunion but that the COVID-19 pandemic affected their plans.
During a guest appearance on "Steph's Packed Lunch," Mel B joked that her bandmates will kill her for saying it but that they're hoping, especially her, for a tour next year.
The "America's Got Talent" judge said that, if it is up to her, the group will hit the stage once again, and described herself as the "driving force" behind the decision.
The famous pop group tour's last reunion took place in 2019, when Mel B, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm, and Geri Halliwell performed for 13 days around the United Kingdom and Ireland.
NOT SO SPICY
The most famous Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham, chose not to join her bandmates, which didn't please Mel B. However, she respected her decision. She said:
"We did our last tour and Victoria respectfully ducked out, and you have to respect when someone doesn't want to go on tour."
According to Mel B, she was upset not to see Posh Spice during the tour, adding that she didn't even have to step on stage but that she could have at least said "hi" or been there as a member of the audience.
Victoria is currently focused on her luxury designer brand.
Victoria, who was part of the "Return of the Spice Grils" tour in 2007 and 2008, claimed she opted out of the 2019 reunion because she wanted to focus on her family.
At the time, the Posh Spice told Vogue Germany that it took a lot of courage to be the one to say "no" but that she felt things were not the way they used to be. She said:
"I'm 45 now and very happy to be the woman I am. I'm not trying to change, I want to be the best version of myself. Before I turned 40, I wasn't that confident. I learned to listen to my gut feeling."
Victoria, who shares four children — Brooklyn, Romeo, Harper, and Cruz — with former soccer superstar David Beckham, is currently focused on her luxury designer brand.
