Spice Girls Reportedly Signed Contracts For A Reunion Show. Will Victoria Beckham Join Them?
Don’t worry, Spice Girls lovers, the reunion tour will happen!
The pop band was discussing some new ideas and planning a reunion tour after all members reunited for the first time in many years at Geri Halliwell Horner’s house.
After the meeting, all five women shared group photos on their social media pages to impress their fans.
But later, Victoria Beckham said she wouldn’t be going on tour — and neither would the rest of the girls. She said:
I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour. We were just bouncing ideas around. Brainstorming. But [fashion] is what I do.
And now, according to TMZ, all five members – Victoria, Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton, and Geri Horner – have signed their contracts. Each of them will get £10million for new projects that might potentially include TV projects in China, a new talent show on television, endorsement deals, and a compilation album of their greatest hits.
The band’s manager Simon Fuller, 57, is behind the venture. It is believed that Victoria was promised not to sing. She also signed for a limited number of reunion shows in the UK and the US. A source close to the band said:
Victoria and Geri agreed it would be impossible to be part of a fully-fledged tour because of family and business commitments. Now that she’s a top designer Victoria is concerned about singing but she wants to make money to pump back into her business.

The band’s debut single Wannabe became #1 in 1996, which made the Spice Girls an overnight sensation. Soon, they turned into the biggest-selling girl group ever, but in 2000, the girls split up.
The girls released a new song in 2007, Friendship Never Ends; nonetheless, a reunion tour did not happen. The band reunited to performer a medley of "Wannabe" and "Spice Up Your Life" at the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony.
