Spice Girls Reunite In London

... To Announce a New Musical

Earlier this year we heard the Spice Girls were reuniting, then we heard that they are not reuniting, then we heard that they were possibly reuniting at some point this year … well, earlier this morning, the Spice Girls DID reunite … but not to perform, the Spices reunited to formally announce the production of a new musical stage show based on their music! The show will be called Viva Forever! Click below to see the reunited Spice Girls and learn more about the forthcoming musical show.

Talk about girl power! The Spice Girls – that’s Victoria Beckham (Posh), Melanie Brown (Scary), Emma Bunton (Baby), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger) – reunited in London on Tuesday to announce a new jukebox musical, called Viva Forever!, which will feature the group’s songs. At the helm of Viva Forever!, which is scheduled to open on Dec. 11 at London’s Piccadilly Theatre, are Jennifer Saunders (Absolutely Fabulous) and Judy Craymer, producer of the musical smash Mamma Mia!. “As one girl follows her dreams, Viva Forever! charts her journey into the world of overnight celebrity and its impact on her mother and the friends she thought she’d have forever,” reads a description of the show on its website. “From London to Spain and back again, as the world judges you, it’s all about who you really are and who you want to be, whatever the cost.” The Spice Girls debuted in 1996 with their hit “Wannabe” and eventually sold more than 75 million albums worldwide before they disbanded in 2000. They reunited for a tour in 2007.

OH MY GOD! This sounds AMAZING! Not only does the music of the Spice Girls lend itself to a fun musical show but the fact that the brilliant comedienne Jennifer Saunders is involved speaks very highly of the show itself. This show sounds a bit like Mama Mia … that is, the story doesn’t have anything to do with songs featured but the songs featured tell the overall story. I might have to make my way to London to see this show once it opens. As for today’s reunion, honestly, I wish the ladies were getting back together to announce a new album, tour or even one-off performance but … I don’t think that will happen anytime soon, I’m afraid. Still, it’s very cool to see them all together again. They look so happy … even Victoria Beckham. Imagine that.

    Interesting body language in the group… Does VB even talk to them anymore? It looks like the loveable, happy Spice Girls with the evil, hungry ghost of Posh hovering nearby…

    Just once I’d like to see Posh just look and stand like a regular person. :)

  3. eat something. everyone. please. (fitness? awesome, but skeletal frame without clothes not so much)

    a great group of great happy girls (love the 4 on the left) and victoria is there to ruin the happiness with her Kristen Stewart attitude

    Why so much hate for VB? She’s POSH, and posh is as posh does. I love her! Mel C is the one I wondered about. There is a video interview of the group, and when VB was speaking, Emma and Geri was drinking in her every word, while Mel C was on the end, standing away from the group and rolling her eyes. If anyone thinks she’s too good for the group, it’s not Posh, but Scary.

    This photo made my day. Lookin good girls. Can’t wait for the musical. And come on — Posh is just being Posh. She’s still in character and I love it.

    Is it Posh or Mary-Kate Olsen??? Ha ha ha, just to continue with the hate towards Vicky..

    My favorite girlgroup of all time: THE SPICE GIRLS!

    Can’t wait to see this musical, so many good memories. Hopefully they reunite for the Olympics as a surprise.

    I am dying to see this musical but there is no way I’ll be making it to London. God, they all look so great together. I was cleaning out a storage room today, actually, and I found my old Spice Girl action figures. Man, I miss them!

    agree with cmc, funny body language in both pics!!! Everyone’s holding each other and check out the distance in Pic 1 and baby’s elbow on pic 2. Shame, didnt they say it took so long because Posh didnt want to do it….she sure doesnt need the money thats for sure.

  11. I really love to see them back together, i think is time to another tour or new music maybe? well i have dreams….

  12. Love these pics!! Posh is like “I am the real A lister here” while standing on her own!

    I think Emma (Baby Spice) is adorable. More so now!
