“Spiceworld” hit San Jose, California last night, and the Hewlett Packard Pavilion was rocking the night away.
In the first US show of their reunion tour, Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown, Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham, Emma "Baby Spice" Burton, Melanie "Sporty Spice" Chisholm and Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell took the stage like the seasoned veterans that they are. And they put on what many are calling the concert of the year.
Oh yes, it is finally here. The Spice Girls reunion tour is officially underway, and the girls played their first show in Vancouver, British Columbia last night to 16,000 grateful fans.
The five UK superstars opened their show with a video of five “Spice-like” girls and their aspirations to one day become pop singers. Then Mel C, Mel B, Geri, Emma, and Victoria took the stage by storm with “Spice Up Your Life.”
The Spice Girls are slowly but surely making their way to Los Angeles in preparation for their big reunion tour kickoff on December 2nd in Vancouver.
On Saturday, Melanie Chisholm was spotted arriving at LAX airport with enough luggage for a small army. And just a day later, fellow Spice Girl Geri Halliwell flew into the Los Angeles airport with baby Bluebell Madonna in her arms.
To say that the tickets to the Spice Girls Reunion Tour are selling like hotcakes would be an understatement. In fact, they’re selling out venues so quickly, promoters are begging and pleading for additional dates. And the 5 ladies from the UK are happy to oblige.
With the initial dates selling out in a matter of seconds, the “Wannabe” singers have added additional dates at the O2 Arena in London. Now, Geri, Emma, Victoria, Melanie, and Melanie are performing on December 15, 16, 18, as well as January 2, 15, and 16.
With the Spice Girls comeback tour preparations in full swing, producers of the show have announced that Jennifer Lopez has signed on to be the support act for all of the US dates.
And you can chalk it up to “Girl Power.” The “Waiting for Tonight” diva revealed that even before she knew the British babes, she admired them. Lopez told press, “Even before we were friends, (Victoria) was always my favorite.”
When Spice Girl Melanie Brown takes the stage for the fifth season of Dancing With The Stars, she’ll be sporting the designs of her “Spice Sister” Victoria Beckham.
According to Scary Spice, Posh is just dying to create a dazzling wardrobe for her dance show appearances. "Victoria is going to come to one of the shows. She was excited. She said, 'I have to design your costumes. We've got to sort that out!' "
