The Spice Girls revealed today (Nov. 5) on the group’s Twitter page that they are reuniting and going on tour. This is their first tour in almost a decade. It is a short tour, having only six shows, and will only be taking place in the United Kingdom.
In the group’s announcement, the girls recorded a funny new broadcasting skit as the playfully argued about the outfits they wore.

The tour will only include four of the girls: Melanie Brown, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm, and Emma Bunton. Victoria Beckham will not be joining the tour. Beckham will be staying behind to focus on her fashion line.
Beckham did, however, release a post on her Instagram page expressing her love for the group and fans and wishing the girls nothing but luck on the tour.

Today marks a special day for the girls as they announce the first tour dates since we performed together in 2012! I won't be joining my girls on stage again but being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish them so much love and fun as they go back on tour next year. I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time! X vb #spicegirls #friendshipneverends
This is the second time the group will have toured with four members. The first time was in 1998 when Halliwell departed from the group.
