Well, everybody can finally stop holding their breath, the Spice Girls are hitting the road for a reunion tour starting on December 7th.
The fab five, Victoria Beckham (Posh), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty), Geri Halliwell (Ginger), Emma Bunton (Baby), and Melanie Brown (Scary), who haven't performed together since 2001, announced in an official statement today that they will be doing 11 performances in various parts of the world, starting in Los Angeles on December 7th and ending in Argentina on January 24th 2008.
To get us all into the mood for the tour, EMI is slated to release the first Spice Girls Greatest Hits album in November. Might we expect a new song to be added to the hits package. That would make me so happy (Not that I'm not thrilled already, I can barely contain myself as is). And as if that weren't enough the girls have agreed to make their first ever documentary as a fivesome (Geri made a documentary about her life after leaving the Spice Girls halfway through their first world tour, and the other four girls subsequently made a documentary while touring America).
"It's going to be the most honest story that you've ever heard," Geri said. "You get to see the dark side of the Spice Girls, the gritty side, the tears."

Wow, I really shouldn't do this for a living because I am horrible at keeping up with this page. I have many stories that I want to write about, it's just a matter of finding the time to do it.
Okay so, at the top of the block is the news that the Spice Girls will be making an official announcement about plans for a (fingers crossed kids) future reunion tomorrow. Given that the girls are actually getting together to make an official statement, all signs are pretty much pointing to go, why would they get together to say that they're never going to reunite? They've been doing that for years and that would be really disappointing to the fans. But I don't want to give my hopes up. I'm sure if they do plan to do a small reunion tour of some sort, it won't be until next year, as Emma Bunton is expecting her first child in a couple of months, and Melanie Brown and Geri Halliwell have new children.
As well as that, I'm assuming they will only perform material from their first two albums. That or they will have to find a way to work Geri into the songs from Forever, as she left after the success of the Spice World album.
I'll write about the official announcement tomorrow. I simply can't wait. What do they have planned for us?
