Spice Girls reuniting in celebration of 20th anniversary

The Spice Girls will reportedly reunite in 2017 to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut single.

In a YouTube video released Friday, three members of the iconic pop group — Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Melanie Brown, a.k.a. Baby, Ginger and Scary Spice — teased their imminent comeback. “You’ve stood by us for 20 years, and we want to say a big thank you,” Horner says in the video. “And we want to celebrate and have a party. And when we do, you’re all invited,” adds Brown. Along with the video, the group launched a new website called Spice Girls GEM (thought to stand for Geri, Emma, Mel B).

The trio failed to provide any specific details, though several UK tabloids report plans for a reunion concert at London’s Hyde Park next summer. Additionally, producer Eliot Kennedy has revealed that he’s been in the studio with Bunton, Horner, and Brown, working on new music.

As of now, it appears the two other Spice Girls — Victoria Beckham (Posh) and Melanie Chisholm (Sporty) will not participate in the reunion. A rep for Beckham told The Independent that she’s focused on her fashion career, while Chisholm is currently working on her own solo album. However, Chisholm did not rule out a return to the group, saying in a statement, “There are lots of discussions going on.”

Spice Girls last reunited in 2012, with all five members appearing together at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics.
