The Spice Girls are an English pop group from the 90’s, consisting of Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice). They released their global hit in 1996, Wannabe, which reached number one in 37 different countries, establishing them as a global phenomenon. They sold more than 31 million copies of their debut album, Spice, which made history as the best selling album by a girl group. To date, the Spice Girls have sold over 85 million records worldwide and they are one of the best selling pop groups ever, as well as the biggest British pop stars since The Beatles. Contributing to their success is international record sales, merchandise, a movie, Spice World, as well as many other record breaking achievements. In 1998, Geri Halliwell left the group because of differences that couldn’t be resolved and that was the beginning of the end for the group. After the group split up, each member went on to embark on their own individual careers in music, television, and books, while starting families. There was a brief reunion back in 2007, but there hasn’t been any talk of the group going on tour or performing together, until now.

What is expected of this reunion
Since the Spice Girls haven’t performed as a group since the 2012 London Olympics closing show ceremony, everyone is eager to find out the details of this world tour that has now been confirmed. Although a date or any real information has yet to be determined or disclosed, fans can’t help but to wonder. When the Spice Girls performed at the London Olympics, fans went crazy and enjoyed the show, along with the other festivities that went on at the Olympics. As the Spice Girls are known for doing huge over the top shows, like the one in 1997 at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, it’s a given that they will tour in Vegas again! Since Vegas is known for its lively casino and party scene, there will be much for fans to take part in. Of course, if you’re anything like me, you can’t go to Vegas and not take part in the casino action. However, if you don’t want to make an appearance at the crowded casinos, you could always opt for playing games online, for instance at pokerstarscasino website. That way, you get the best of both worlds; your favorite girl group and activity!
No matter where the group chooses to tour, they are going to do well. Sources close to the group say that the ladies of the group are thinking big in terms of scaling up globally, hinting at the fact that Marvel or Disney should pick them up seeing as to how they’re the biggest girl group on the planet. Who knows what is next for the Spice Girls if this tour goes just how they envision it!
