The Spice Girls Reuniting For The 2016 Festival Season?
Are The Spice Girls Reuniting For The 2016 Festival Seaso? All Our Dreams, People…
Oh please, oh please can this one be true? According to today’s papers, The Spice Girls are reuniting for the 2016 festival circuit.
Think Say You’ll Be There, think Two Become One – all the nineties goodness washed down with lukewarm festival wine and, weather permitting, a mud bath. Hooray!
Let’s face it, the festival circuit is always the most generous of rumour mills. But this one comes from a pretty good source and actually *could* have legs.
According to The Sun, Isle Of Wight Festival chief John Giddings is the one trying to bring Posh, Baby, Sporty, Scary and Ginger back together, all to mark 20 years since the release of Wannabe. We can’t believe it’s been that long either.
Getting all five Spice Girls on stage may prove trickier than it sounds, but John has (sort of) managed it before when he got 3/5 together this year to watch Fleetwood Mac perform. Saying this though, Sporty, Baby and Ginger are the easier ones to get on board. Mel B has commitments in new hometown LA, and with her new career as a mega-designer, Victoria Beckham is unlikely to fancy a whirl on the main stage.
Whilst crooning along with her former bandmates to the sounds of Stevie Nicks earlier this month, Geri Halliwell even teased / confirmed the rumours. ‘I’m [in] with Emma and Mel,’ she said. ‘That’ll be our first performance — in the mosh, in the pits.’More on this story, of course, as it develops. Totally in the mood for Spice World now!
