The London leg of the Spice Girls reunion has sold out in an amazing 38 seconds, according to promoters. Over a million UK fans registered for the December 15th show at London’s 02 Arena and were alerted by text and email when the tickets were finally released. So quickly were the tickets snapped up that two additional dates â December 16th and December 18th â have been added to the girl groupâs 2007/8 world tour.
