Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham, made quite the ‘posh’ entrance on the red carpet at press night of ‘Viva Forever’, a musical based on the music of The Spice Girls at Piccadilly Theatre. Posh arrived with husband David Beckham and family, separate from the rest of the girls. Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Gerri Halliwell and Melanie Chisholm arrived together, walking the red carpet, smiling and looking glamorous and colorful.
The spicy ladies sang their hits “Wannabe” and “Spice Up Your Life” while riding around the Olympic Stadium atop bedazzled taxi cabs.
This marks the first time the British 90’s group has performed together since their reunion tour more than four years ago.
Victoria made a appearance earlier in the show when one of her designs appeared in the portion of the evening honoring British fashion.
Spice Girls Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell have reportedly canceled their world tour after just two months of performances and two continents. Why, you ask? The “official” report is family commitments.
Instead of continuing on to play dates in Australia, Argentina and China, the girl power group will finish the tour in Toronto on February 26th. So far, they have performed in the UK, Canada, United States and in Madrid and Cologne in Europe.
A spokesman for the group says: “Sadly the tour needs to come to an end by the end of February due to family and personal commitments for Emma, Geri, Mel B, Melanie C and Victoria.
New mom Baby Spice aka Emma Bunton touched down in LA yesterday and received the Posh Spice treatment upon arrival. With newborn son Beau and boyfriend Jade Jones in tow, Emma was greeted by a hoard of photographers. She was careful to keep Beau covered up but was all smiles for the cameras.
The Spice Girls are set to begin rehearsing for their reunion tour which kicks off in Los Angeles on December7.
The Spice Girls have reportedly leased a Boeing 757, nicknamed Spice Force One, for their upcoming comeback tour. Needless to say, it’s nothing but the best for the girls – Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell – who aren’t content with flying first class.
The jet, said to be a flying palace, includes a creche, makeup facilities, a dining room, business center, state-of-the-art bathrooms, a media center and sleeping quarters.
In addition to Spice Force One, the group is also reported to have planned to lease two other jets, Spice Force Two and Three, for their dancers, stage hands and equipment along with the team of chefs and nannies who will be on-hand 24/7 to feed and look after all the VIPs on the tour.
According to reports, between $14 and $20 million has been budgeted for the three aircraft.
