An actual reunion tour was just announced (without Victoria). HQ, this is your last chance!

I looked at the Wikipedia entry for their 2007-08 tour and was shocked at the level of venues they were playing. Multiple nights at the Staples Center, Air Canada Centre, Nassau Coliseum. They did two nights at the Prudential Center and then immediately followed it with a show at the Izod Center, then did MSG a week later which is a very impressive level of demand. I'm not at all surprised that they did so well in the U.K. but I just wasn't aware that there was so much Spice Girls nostalgia in North America in 2008. Usually it takes longer for an act like that to come back to such prominence.

I'm amazed that this entire thread happened and I didn't mention that my middle aged father bought Spice Girl dolls in 1997 and took the whole family to see Spice World in theaters opening weekend

It's amazing that my parents are still together after all these years.

Great thread IMO.

I'm genuinely shocked their reunion tour hasn't hit the states yet. They did that small run of shows in Europe last summer and that was it. I understand they were trying to gauge interest with Victoria being gone but I think the shows proved successful enough that they could do a small stadium tour in the US.

I feel like the only non classic rock nostalgia tours that are big enough for stadiums are package shows so unless they want to schlep around TLC and New Kids on the Block, I think Spice Girls would probably be in arenas.

She was a Knicks fan so obviously that drew me in:
