The veteran international girl group that opened doors for bands like the PussyCat Dolls, is set to delight fans across the world – by officially announcing their plans to reunite. Nineties pop sensations the Spice Girlsâ Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm and Geri Halliwell have ended months of speculation over a possible reunion of the famous fivesome, and will confirm details of the reunion at a press conference next Thursday (June 28, 2007). The band is also rumored to be embarking on a 25-date world tour later this year (07), and will reportedly earn $20 million each for their part in the reunion. Earlier this month (Jun 07), Beckham hinted of a possible reunion, saying, “We’ll see what turns out, but between you and me, I’m really hopeful that it definitely will happen.” Chisholm also revealed she had been persuaded by British rockers the Kaiser Chiefs to consider teaming up with her former bandmates. The Spice Girls split in 2001, three years after the departure of Halliwell in 1998. The Spice Girls debut, “Wannabe”, released in 1996, went on to sell in excess of 53 million records, establishing the group as one of the most commercially successful and influential female bands. The group released three studio albums and 10 singles, and starred in the film Spiceworld, which grossed $75 million globally. In addition, Spice Girls merchandise helped to introduce the term “Girl Power” into popular discourse.
