Victoria Beckham: The Spice Girls ‘aren’t going on tour’

The musical universe giveth and the musical universe taketh away. The dreams of Spice Girls fans (okay, maybe just me) were crushed over the weekend when Victoria Beckham made it clear that the girl power ambassadors of the 90s were not reuniting.

Just this past Friday, rumors were circulating that the Spices were reuniting and taking their act on the road in the US and UK starting this summer. When the news broke, many wondered why fashion maven Victoria was embarking on a tour while overseeing her collection. Well, at New York Fashion Week the Posh one confirmed fan fears when she told Vogue UK on Sunday that “I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour.” Well, crap.

Victoria broke the sad news while debuting her Autumn/Winter 2018 collection in an intimate show at the James Burden Mansion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Celebrating the tenth anniversary of launching her line this year, she asserted, “This is what I do.”

When Vogue asked if she’d ever consider a sequel to Spice World, the band’s 1998 cinematic romp, she joked, “Is that what you really, really want?” She added, “I remember that movie. I was so upset when they made me wear that tight little army dress.” That dress made an impression, especially on Victoria’s six-year-old daughter, Harper. Despite only seeing the movie once, she exclaimed, “Mummy, I love that bit when everyone’s in the really cool clothes and you’re in the tight little army dress!”

Even though Victoria nixed the tour, she hasn’t completely given up the ghost on a reunion, saying the possibility of a future Spice project is “a positive thing.” She went on to say, “You know, there’s so much bad stuff going on, and the Spice Girls were about fun and celebrating individuality. I think there’s so much that the brand can do, and it’s such a positive message for young kids.” As for whatever comes for the girls – be it new music, performances, TV specials, one thing’s for sure, according to Victoria. She cheekily jibed, “What does [a reunion] look like in the future? It’s not me in a catsuit.”

She may not wear a catsuit anymore, but she can rock a sensible trouser, like the ones she wore during her NYFW show. Her upcoming line, which she shared a preview of on Instagram, features some classic, tailored outerwear and mixes leopard prints with her more conservative hues. Victoria’s hubby, David, as well as Harper and sons Romeo and Cruz, were there to celebrate the launch with their mom, while oldest son Brooklyn, in college (already!) was there in spirit. Victoria posted a photo to Instagram showing love for her picture perfect family and giving a shout out to Brooklyn. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be packing up my Spice attire until the next tour rumors surface. Sob.

Thank u ladies! Amazing @akiima #VBAW18 #NYFW kisses VB

    Well that”s a shame. A Spice Girls concert is the most fun you can have with your clothes on.

  2. Girl_ninja says:

    I knew there wouldn’t be a tour, at least not with Victoria.

    • Thompson Twin says:

      ….well apparently the newest member; Menopausal Spice couldn’t commit to the schedule

  3. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I want those red shoes.

    • Rapunzel says:

      Me too. They are from her line, as is the matching clutch. I will be using my tax refund on both, I think.

  4. monsy says:

    What’s going on with her eyebrows? She always look sad.

    • Beara ears says:

      Her face is a plastic surgery disaster. If she’d only left well enough alone from the beginning, she wouldn’t look too bad now. It’s a good recommendation against cheap surgery followed by expensive surgery going along with disordered eating.

    • L84Tea says:

      I was coming on here to literally say those exact same words…

      • Flffgrrrlr says:

        I saw the top pic and thought woah she looks different, is it her sad eye making brows? Or does she just look v sad these days? She defo looks very different than she used to.

    • Sophia's Side eye says:

      She looks like she’s had way too much Botox.

  5. Beara ears says:

    I don’t understand why she’s resisting. Her fashion line is losing money like mad; surely her husband is tired of bailing it out. Maybe some tour money would help?

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I think she in particular has moved on from the music scene – the others have continued to stay within the music industry and its obvious she has no real desire to go back to that life. She has also worked very hard of the years to get taken somewhat seriously in the fashion world, she won’t want to damage the brand.

      • Beara ears says:

        I think the fact that the brand isn’t making money damages the brand; it was always a vanity project anyway.

        I’m sure she remembers how to lip sync and not move around while other dance.

    • magnoliarose says:

      He is tired of bailing her out so I am not sure how much longer she can go on. She made a lot of mistakes with it from the beginning.
      I don’t know how she endures him though. I couldn’t take being with a man who didn’t bother to hide his cheating and is constantly on the prowl. I found him handsome for a minute, but there has always been something unappealing about him. Other than his voice.

      • Beara ears says:

        Lol I can’t hold his voice against him ; but all his a-hole behaviour is fair game.

        I’m in two minds with the fashion line ; I want to give her props for trying something ambitious, when she could easily have gone the Jessica Simpson route, done a whole low cost Top Shop line or whatever, and make a tonne of cash on disposable crap.

        However as you said, she’s make a tonne of mistakes, and her only designs I like are rip offs of designers I adore. Why am I gonna pay MORE for a worse version of Roland Mouret?

      • Aurelia says:

        She is wripping off The Row to high heavens!

  6. lolamd says:

    I love those tuxedo pants. Must have!

    • AnnaKist says:

      She does great trousers, jackets and coats, but sadly, I am too voluptuous for her garments… 😭

      • Hazel says:

        I don’t think trouser hems should drag on the ground. I’m surprised she doesn’t trip. I think the Spice Girls are going to do something, though. There has to be a reason they all got together at Geri’s & let us all know about it.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I love tuxedo pants too.

  7. supersoft says:

    Why not have a Las Vegas Show? And me thinks that Victoria is simply not fit enough for a tour. Way to thin, with not enough muscles. And i dont see her thinking of changing this.

    • Beara ears says:

      I just can’t imagine seeing a Spice Girls show and feeling like something was missing without this miserable looking woman there.
      Their whole thing was silly bubblegum pop; I think they’d do just fine moving their mouths and doing some dancing without her there.

      • gabbie says:

        she actually has a great sense of humor.. i remember watching their mtv show when they first moved to la and she was so dryly funny. she didn’t take herself seriously at all. you can still see it, with her “really, really want” comment up there. it peaks through on her instagram too.

  8. Betsy says:

    I want those green earrings. Anyone recognize them?

    It is very sad news that the Spice Girls aren’t getting back together yet. But somehow this keeps it pure, my memories are pure, there’s no ghastly HD camera, there’s no sadness about the fact that what I love about them now is that I am time traveling when I listen to their music and they can’t possibly measure up.

  9. Melissa says:

    Can’t tell if it’s the plastic surgery, or that her makeup artist is just not doing right by her…

  10. Jayna says:

    It’s funny how they all let that rumor being reported as fact sit out there and didn’t immediately quash it.

  11. gabbie says:

    i knew she’d never do it. the others, sure. her? no way.

  12. PJ says:

    Pardon the punn but they all do this little song & dance every few years and at this point, isn’t it getting kind of tired? At some point it’s like, either s–t or get off the pot, you know?

    That being said, I liked The Spice Girls well enough when they debuted during my middle school years (though my angstly little heart always resinated far more with Tori & Alanis).
    And as much as I LOVED and often reminisce about the 90s, not everything from that decade needs to make a return.

  13. Aurelia says:

    I love her but she really, really needs to stop going bra-less.

  14. Kelly C says:

    She looks so tragic all the time.

  15. Nikki says:

    “I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. … ” I’m disappointed, damn it!! Let me own this sadness…

  16. toDaze says:

    Barney isn’t going on tour either, so I guess this is a sad day for credit card carrying toddlers everywhere.
