Spice Girls Reunion Tour to Hit Vegas
Ok, I just KNOW you all have been waiting for this crucial announcement but yes, the newly reunited Spice Girls will be visiting Las Vegas.
On Thursday (June 28) the original five members of the pop vocal group appeared at a press conference to announce they were reuniting for a world tour. It was the first time all five had been in the same room since Geri Halliwell – Ginger Spice to you – left the band at the height of their popularity.
Each of the women will pocket at least 10 million pounds (approximately $20 million US) for the eleven city tour that will visit six continents. Vegas is the second city on that tour, with a scheduled date of December 08, 2007. No venue has yet been named.
Listening to the press conference on the news, it appears that money was definitely the motivating factor behind the tour, as some of the comments made by the group had a bit of an edge to it.
From Halliwell, when asked what it was like to be reunited with her band mates: “Imagine you got divorced and you’ve got back together with your ex-husband.” She also went on to say that putting the tour together was like “organising a G8 summit”.
To add to the snarkiness, Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) said about Halliwell, “She just appreciates the fact we’ve let her back in, but we’ve forgiven her.” She then tried to tone it down by saying, “I love all the girls. Yes, we argue, but we’re like sisters.”
Yikes! I’m thinking Vegas odds-makers should start taking bets on whether the tour will implode upon itself before it finishes. I’m guessing there will be separate travel arrangements for each of the five, which also includes Emma Bunton, Mel C and Mel B (Baby, Sporty and Scary Spice, respectively).
It appears they think there’s going to be a mad rush for tickets, because they are holding a ticket lottery for each tour date, with a maximum of six tickets per person limit.
