The Spice Girls announced 11 concert dates for a tour that kicks off in December.


The Spice Girls have confirmed they will reunite for a world tour to take place in December and January, BBC reports.

The full lineup has not performed on stage since Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell quit in May 1998.

The 11 dates announced include a London show on Dec. 15, eight days after the tour begins in Los Angeles.

“I think for us it was about celebrating the past, enjoying each other and it’s about our fans. It was the right time,” said Halliwell.

The only British date is in London, with the venue not yet confirmed. The other European dates are in Cologne and Madrid.

There had been rumours they would perform at the Concert For Diana memorial show in London on Sunday, but with Emma Bunton currently pregnant they decided not to appear.
