They’re baa-ack! Ah the Spice Girls. However did we survive in a world without them?
The spicy 5-some kicked off their reunion tour in Vancouver, British Colombia this past Sunday, performing together for the first time in 10 years and wearing custom Roberto Cavalli outfits of bronze and gold.
As they prepared for the concert, the Spice Girls said they were excited and nervous about their big night.
“You know what, so much time has passed, so much water has gone under the bridge, it’s just great to all be back together,” said Melanie Chisholm, also known as “Sporty Spice.”
Chisholm dismissed the notion that there was any tension among the women.
“I don’t think we ever thought it was the four of us and Geri,” she said. “Us coming back together has been five individuals coming back together.”
