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."
