Fans around the world were elated when The Spice Girls announced that they were reuniting for a tour. Rumours began swirling several months ago, suggesting that the gang could be getting back together, and this past weekend it was rumoured that they would announce the reunion tour on Monday, November 5th. The girl group sent fans into a frenzy today when they announced their official tour dates on their Twitter, calling it "Breaking Spice News".
The happiness was short lived for Canadian fans, however, when they found out that The Spice Girls would not be hitting up Canada in their reunion tour. Fans were absolutely devastated.
The Spice Girls will be performing in the United Kingdom next summer in June 2019. All of the original members will be on the tour, except for Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice. As of now, they have not announced any other tour dates, but not all hope is lost – Mel B has said that they would like to go on an international tour, according to Billboard.
Check out some of the reactions of fans below. We're hoping that they'll extend their tour to North America one day and let us sing our hearts out to "Wannabe" in concert.

The Spice Girls will be going on tour and hitting up six cities in the United Kingdom. If you're lucky enough to be in the UK during the concert dates, tickets go on sale this Saturday or November 10th at 10:30 AM. If not, then hopefully, one day The Spice Girls will make their way across the pond to Canada.
