Victoria Beckham has ruled out a rumoured Spice Girls reunion tour.
The pop star turned fashion designer, 43, rejected reports that the quintet would be playing live in the UK and US this summer.
The group had confirmed plans to work on new projects following a reunion lunch at Geri Horner’s house in Hertfordshire last week.
Beckham told Vogue: “I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour.”
Asked about their plans, she said: “There’s something so strong in the message of what the Spice Girls stood for. What is that in the future? What does that look like? We were just bouncing ideas around. Brainstorming.
“It was so great to see the girls. We had such a fun lunch. It was really, really, really lovely. I still speak to them all individually, but for us all to get together was really lovely,” Beckham said.
After debut single Wannabe hit number one in 1996, the Spice Girls became a smash-hit success before splitting up in 2000.
The group embarked on a three-month tour of Europe and the US in 2008 to tie in with a greatest hits release and as a final farewell to fans.
They emerged once more to perform at the Olympic closing ceremony in 2012 but an expected comeback in 2016 with Horner, Melanie Brown and Emma Bunton failed to materialise.-The Guardian
