British girl band, Spice Girls, on Monday announced a 2019 UK reunion tour, but without Victoria Beckham.
The 1990s pop phenomenon will take the stage in six cities across Britain next year, kicking off in Manchester on June 1 and culminating at the famous Wembley Stadium two weeks later.
All five former bandmates announced plans earlier this year to perform together again for the first time since 2012, but it has since emerged Beckham — “Posh Spice” — will not take part.
In a video shared on the band’s newly-created Twitter account, the four remaining members staged a mock news broadcast to confirm the tour, featuring them starting to sing one of their old songs.
Ahead of the announcement Melanie Brown (Scary Spice) left the door open to Beckham, now a respected fashion designer, still getting involved.
“It’s just the four of us that are fully confirmed, but you know, Vic might join us at some point,” she told Britain’s ITV.
“She’s got a full-on life with all of her work commitments and her fashion line and her kids, so, she’s just kind of not committing just yet,” Brown added.
The five-piece formed in 1994, split in 2000 but reunited for a world tour in 2007. They sold 85 million albums worldwide.
Tickets for the new tour will go on sale on Saturday.
