It’s not surprising that they’ve had to add extra dates due to phenomenal demand to see them back together.
And now the singers have replaced their “girl power” catchphrase with a call to “people power” in light of the divisiveness of Brexit.
Speaking with The Sun, Emma Bunton said: “It’s people power. We’re about equality and bringing everyone together.”
While Geri Horner spoke of backing the Prime Minister, who she said did not have an “easy position”.
Ginger Spice added: “Britain, come together whatever it is, come together and sort our solutions out together, that’s the most important thing.
“We don’t have to agree on politics, it’s bigger than that.
“You can just support a woman doing the best she can and that’s it.”
At one point, a rep confirmed, over 700,000 people were in the online queue. The girls had announced six dates, which quickly became ten when demand proved to be exceptional.
Andrew Parsons, managing director at Ticketmaster, said according to Metro: “Demand for Spice Girls was off the chart. They have smashed through Ticketmaster UK’s records becoming the busiest ever sale.
“There were millions of people on our site searching for tickets, with a queue at one point of well over 700,000.”
He added: “Hundreds of thousands of tickets were sold to happy fans across the country within minutes. Congratulations to the girls.
“From what we saw, they could have played nearly every night for a year.”
International tour dates are yet to be announced, but will no doubt be revealed in the near future.
