No of course not. The world’s moved on and the Spice Girl’s have at least 7 kids between them and only one husband. They should be heading for the Trisha Goddard show rather than a world tour but that’s life under a Brown Government I guess. Is it just me or is this simply a cynical excuse to try and make a lot of money from re-hashing the back-catalogue? Everyone’s seen what a brilliant job Take That have done in re-forming. But at least those guys wrote some decent new material and brought out a new album to coincide with their tour. The timing was perfect too, exploiting the dramatic downturn in Robbie Williams’ own fortunes. Oh how Gary and the other lads must have enjoyed that having been snubbed by RW when their initial reunion was captured on film for a TV documentary. But the Spice Girls aren’t bothering – it’s just another rehashed ‘hits’ album backed by a tour. Grim….
What’s the motive for them? Victoria’s involvement mystifies me. It’s not like she needs the money is it? She must have reconciled herself to the thought that her music career was over long ago and was actually kind of moving on by trying to establish the Beckham brand in the US. It’s shallow celebrityness but it showed a degree of maturity about how to maximise their earning potential. David’s also going to have a lot on his plate with his new team/renewed England commitments. Does he want to be left at home with the kids with all the in-laws at least 13 hours away by fast jet? Er….
Mel C – she’s got an established independent singing career now. Why damage it all by going back to blabberring all that Zigga Zigga crap?
I guess the reason is that the other 3 have no established income streams and a few extra £m will keep them in the style to which they’ve become accustomed. It’ll probably enable them to have more kids with no hands-on dads too. That’s the new girl power reality I guess.
I did smile when I heard that the venue for the one and only UK concert in the ‘world tour’ has yet to be decided. Fans will first have to register their interest. Ah…the old let’s see how the ticket sales go routine. Bit sad don’t you think that they don’t have the confidence to book Wembley or the O2? How I’d love it if they ended up playing Streatham Ice rink. That’s what I really really want to see happen. Bit cruel?
