Mel B: ‘Spice Girls will tour with new music’


Mel B has strongly hinted that the Spice Girls reunion will include a tour and new music.

The group agreed to an unspecified ‘reunion’ earlier this year (18), but fans’ hopes for a tour were quickly dashed by Victoria Beckham, who shot down rumours the girls would hit the road as a five-piece.

However, on U.K. TV show Loose Women, Mel said that she was determined the band would tour again – and dropped a big hint that her bandmates agreed.

Asked if new Spice Girls music was in the pipeline as part of their return, she said: “It’s going to be a bit of everything. If it was up to me we’d go on tour immediately. Maybe we will soon… hopefully.

“I’ve always said we’re definitely touring. I think I’ve just been nagging them all a bit too much. I stopped nagging and then they all said yes. I shut my mouth,” she added.

The 42-year-old, full name Melanie Brown, explained that she Victoria, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner, and Melanie Chisholm were currently “figuring the stuff out” and that all of them had signed up with their old manager Simon Fuller for a project that is “very exciting”.

During the TV chat, Mel explained that she was determined to tour with the Spice Girls again as her younger children Madison, six, and Angel, 11, were not old enough to remember her last gig with the group at the London 2012 Olympics.

She added, “When I told them ‘Maybe mummy’s going to be going back on tour and getting back with the Spice Girls‘, they were like, ‘Yes, finally we get to see what you told us you did for real!’ It was kind of nice.”

Mel also denied any rift with her old bandmates, saying they were “like a family” and “sisters” and that she was going to meet with Geri and Emma on Wednesday.
