scandal 06/11/2018

The Spice Girls have announced their first tour for a decade, with six UK stadium dates in June next year.

Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Melanie Chisholm revealed details of the reunion tour in a video.

Victoria Beckham, however, will not be taking part.

The girl group will kick off the tour at Manchester's Etihad Stadium on 1 June 2019.

The foursome will also perform in Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh and Bristol, finishing at London's Wembley Stadium. They will be supported by Jess Glynne.

The video is in the style of a news bulletin, and sees the girls fighting over Geri's outfit before breaking into song - with a voiceover declaring the Spice Girls tour "a shock announcement".

The press release said Victoria would not join the girls on tour due to "business commitments".

In a statement, she said: "Being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish my girls so much love and fun as they go back on tour, I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time!"

Mel B announced there would also be a world tour to follow, adding that she still hoped Victoria would feature in some of the shows.

"It's just the four of us that are fully confirmed, but Vic might join us at some point," the star said on ITV's Loose Women. "It'd be a shame if she didn't."
