Spice Girls reunion tour hits the wrong note

Spice Girls reunion tour hits the wrong note

Mel's interview comes after the Spice Girls kicked off their tour in Dublin on Friday night, taking to the stage as a four-piece without Victoria Beckham, 45.

However, the concert was largely well-received from those who attended, with one fan tweeting: "Such a surreal night last night at the Spice Girls".

"Melanie B you're wonderful up on that stage, Victoria you'll be missed, but here in spirit and Melanie C, what strength and focus you give us all, thank you".

"What can I say yous didn't disappoint!"

Geri Horner donned a floor-length sparkling Union flag gown, Emma Bunton wore a shimmering pink mini-dress, Brown had a glittering animal print jumpsuit for the occasion while Melanie Chisholm sparkled in a shining Olympian outfit.

The Spice Girls are scheduled for 12 more shows all over the United Kingdom, with Cardiff's Principality Stadium on Monday the next stop on the tour.

They opened the show with the message: "We welcome all ages, all races, all gender identities, all countries of origin, all sexual orientations, all religions and beliefs, all abilities".

"There's something wrong when the crowd at a Spice..." Just take a look at this pre-Spice Girls Irish dancing set if you don't believe us. "Got [sic] gonna lie I was prepared to be disappointed but good god they were UNREAL".

Mel C told the crowd it was very special for the band to be back in Dublin. "This is our first time with the real live Spice Girls", said Erica Rozario, 32, from Toronto, in Baby Spice-esque pigtails and a Scary Spice leopard-skin top.

The Spice Girls shot to fame in 1996 with the single Wannabe and went on to have a series of global hits including Who Do You Think Are, 2 Become 1 and Viva Forever. Sharing a picture of a bandaged eye, she said she now had to get "a very cool Scary eye patch".

And while there may have been one member missing from the evening's show, the Spice Girls did make sure to pay tribute to Victoria Beckham. They reunited for a tour in 2007-2008 and also performed at the closing ceremony for the 2012 London Olympics.

The Spice Girls will now head to Cardiff, then Manchester, Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh and Bristol.
