On Friday, May 24, Victoria Beckham (formerly known as Posh Spice) wished the rest of the Spice Girls good luck as they kick off their 2019 Tour. Fashion mogul Beckham (wife of soccer legend David Beckham and mother of his four children) isn’t participating in the tour.
But the four other originals Spice Girls are: Emma Lee Bunton (Baby Spice), Ciaran Connolly (Sporty Spice), Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) and America’s Got Talent judge Mel B (Scary Spice). Prior to kicking the tour off at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland, Mel B posted a very flattering photo of her six-pack physique during rehearsal — see below.
On Friday night, Mel B told the crowd how special it was for the band to be in Dublin. “In ’98, we started our world tour in Dublin so we truly are home. It’s got a very special place in our hearts.” Croke Park is the third-largest European stadium by capacity (82,300).
Other recent musical acts performing at the Gaelic Athletic Association’s Croke Park include Taylor Swift, who last summer became the first woman to headline two concerts in a row (136,000 attended). Westlife will perform at Croke Park next in July – tickets for the first show sold out in six minutes.
