Apparently some dreams will come true for girls with a fondness for the '90s. Or at least there’s a chance that they'll come true. The Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls are thinking about doing a world tour together, according to BSB's Brian Littrell.
Littrell, 39, told The Sun via E Online that the two groups were in “early talks.” Though BSB has been reunited for some time, and went on tour with New Kids On the Block in 2012, it would be very big news if the Spice Girls also reunited.
If the collaboration were to happen, it would probably take place in the summer of 2015. The Backstreet Boys have already signed up to perform shows in North American for the “In a World Like This” tour with Avril Lavigne. Entertainment Weekly added that the guys will also be doing a Backstreet Boys Cruise, which will sail from Miami to Half Moon Cay in October.
All five BSBs are onboard for the North American gigs and the cruise. But as for the Spice Girls, Victoria Beckham is still making headlines following her exit from group, and she has said that she's not interested in resurrecting her singing career. So it’s assumed that if the group were to get back on the road, it would be without Posh Spice.
The last time the Spice Girls were seen together was at the London Olympics in 2012, and though Beckham was pleased with how the show turned out, she told Vanity Fair Italy that she didn’t want to “ever do it again.”
The New York Daily News said she told the magazine that Beckham was proud and honored to perform at the Olympics, but that it was the "perfect time to say, 'That's great. Thank you to everybody, but no more.’” Beckham also said: "Sometimes you've got to know when it's time to leave the party.”
Does that mean Baby Spice, Emma Bunton, Ginger Spice Geri Halliwell, Scary Spice Melanie Brown and Sporty Spice Melanie Chisholm would reunite without Posh Spice?
