Spice Girls Set to Reunite for Geri Halliwells Birthday
The ‘Bag It Up’ hitmaker is expected to perform together as a five-piece with her bandmates Emma Bunton, Mel B, Mel C and Victoria Beckham at her 50th birthday in September.
AceShowbiz -The Spice Girls are set to reunite at Geri Horner’s a.k.a. Geri Halliwell birthday party. Inviting Emma Bunton, Mel B a.k.a. Melanie Brown, Mel C a.k.a. Melanie C and Victoria Beckham a.k.a. Victoria Adams to the lavish bash she is planning for her 50th birthday in September, the “Bag It Up” hitmaker is expected to perform together as a five-piece with her bandmates for the first time since the closing ceremony of the London Olympics in 2012.
“It’s going to be an amazing night. It’s a seated, black tie do and the theme is Timeless Elegance. Loads of Geri and her husband Christian’s celeb pals will be there and, excitingly, Geri is inviting all the Spice Girls – including Victoria,” a source told The Sun newspaper. “It’s being held in a Grade II listed manor in Oxfordshire which, conveniently, is just a stone’s throw from David and Victoria’s Cotswolds manor.”
“The girls can’t wait to reunite and the plan is for all five of them to sing Happy Birthday and get up on stage to join Geri for a number – possibly ‘Wannabe’,” the source went on adding. “One of the girls turning 50 is a massive deal – they all want to mark the occasion in style, and reuniting after a decade seems the perfect time.”
Mel C previously claimed there have been “constant” discussions about the Spice Girls getting back together again. When asked about the possibility of another reunion in December 2021, she said, “I really hope so. We’re talking about it. We are talking about it constantly. It was always the plan.”
“We did these amazing stadium shows two years ago. It was the best thing we’ve ever done,” she added. “The creative was so incredible. We had the best time.”
The “Say You’ll Be There” singers formed in 1994 and went on to become the best-selling girl group of all time. In 1998, Geri suddenly left the band and the remaining members went their separate ways in 2000.
All five members reunited for a string of arena shows in 2007. They got back together again to play at 13 stadiums across the U.K. in 2019, with the exception of Victoria, who declined to take part in a second reunion.
