Mel C has teased that the five Spice Girls are « talking » about plans for their 25th anniversary in a WhatsApp group.
The year 2021 will mark 25 years since the band introduced themselves to the world with their debut single, « Wannabe », and Mel C will confirm that she, Geri Horner, Mel B, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham – who did not participate in their tour of 2019- are in talks about the future.
She told You magazine: « We have our WhatsApp group and we are all talking, but I can’t say more than that. »
In the same interview, he explained how being Sporty Spice again for the 2019 tour allowed him to have a « magical » time.
« Going back isn’t just getting back with the girls, which is great; it’s also going back to the emotions of who you were in the band, » he said.
« I talked to my therapist a lot about those feelings. I was worried about having to go back to being Sporty Spice. Then I realized that I am her, but I am older and happier and I am much more confident. Once I realized that, it was a game changer.
« And the reunion tour was magical. The fans were there to have a good time and they looked fantastic. We all had our children there. We sang in the sun and rain. Of all the tours it was, for me, the most special. »
The latest comments come after Mel C said that he is doing his best to secure another Spice Girls tour next year.
« It would be rude not to! » The singer told ITV’s Lorraine when asked if the band will seek to mark the milestone with a tour. « We had the most incredible year last year, playing stadiums and we have to do it again. We talk about it all the time. »
Melanie C released her eighth solo album, titled ‘Melanie C’, last month. In a three-star review, NME’s Rhian Daly wrote: « Sporty Spice delivers their best work in decades with an ode to self-love inspired by a new generation of girl power espoused by Shura, Nadia Rose and more. »
