Are The Spice Girls Planning A 20th Anniversary Reunion Tour?


Right when you were finally coming to terms with the idea that there might never been another Spice Girls reunion, Mel B comes along and inflates your hopes all over again!

Mel B appeared on the U.K. TV special Alan Carr's New Year's Specstacular, where the topic of the Spice Girls' upcoming 20th anniversary became the focus of attention.

"I think I'm the one putting all the rumors out there," Mel B, better known as Scary Spice, shared. "To be serious, it is our twentieth anniversary this year and it would be rude not to celebrate."

Yes, it would be rude not to celebrate. However, that doesn't mean it's a sure thing. In fact, Mel B herself seemed pretty unclear on details (or if there even were any details, at all, of any kind).

"Hopefully something will be happening pretty soon," the 40-year-old singer said, curbing her bets, before adding, "I can't tell you what it is yet." So, yeah, keep hope alive but maybe not too much hope.

Recently, the Backstreet Boys have been teasing a possible combined tour with the Spice Girls, which has been driving fans of both groups absolutely crazy.
