If you live in Australia, Argentina and China I am sorry my friend. Because the Spice Gals won’t be gracing your civic arenas anytime soon. They are cutting their world tour short, and wrapping it up in Toronto. Why? Well, rumors of poor ticket sales in places other than the UK and US for one. The other is that Scary and Sporty (Mels B and C) reportedly had enough. Mel B wants to get back to her children and scary duck-killing husband. She’s also reportedly received numerous offers here in the States since her “Dancing With The Stars” stint. Offers to what? Bang a rich guy for a cash baby? Mel C reportedly thought the tour was playing havoc with her solo career in the UK, and was the least convinced that a reunion tour was necessary. Dude, you can’t tell me receiving a multi-million dollar paycheck to lope across the stage and screech bad pop songs is worse than appearing as the opening act for Gloria Gaynor in some gay pub in Liverpool. Stop clownin’. The official word from their people is “sadly the tour needs to come to an end by the end of February due to family and personal commitments for Emma, Geri, Mel B, Melanie C and Victoria.”
The Spice Girls themselves said “”We’ve had such an amazing time over the past 3 months. It’s been incredible being back together and seeing our fans again. We want to thank everyone who came to see us. It was all so mad the first time round, so we’ve really been able to appreciate it properly this time…Really sorry if we didn’t get to see you this time round.” Whatever! I hate you! Seriously, I would have gone just to see Posh do her catwalk thing. The others each got a solo song, but since she can’t sing or dance – they just had her walk down a catwalk and pout and look like an alien. I’d sign up.
