    I'd say it's more getting them out of her hair.

    Awful news. What a way to tarnish a legacy.

    What's the point? Sometimes I wish they'd just give it a rest and wheel themselves out at important British events only.

    How global is this really likely to be, considering what happened last time?

    The tour was successful last time, it was only the accompanying single and album that underperformed. :david:

    God it's any shameless thing for a FEW QUID, isn't it? Victoria isn't doing it because she's got the cash pouring in from elsewhere, whereas the others have just pissed it up the wall on turdy boutique projects, make up to hide the bruises, B&H Silver and Nourkrin

    I don't see why they should get judged so much more harshly than anybody else. A pop act doing a 20th anniversary tour for some cash? Let's all burn our copies of Emma Bunton's album of marxist protest songs in outrage!

    Well they did cancel two thirds of the continents they originally intended to visit, didn't they?

    Anyway I'd be happier with Victoria on board obviously, but honestly she has perfectly valid reasons for not wanting to do it and why should the other four be beholden to her? If there's a demand for this (and I strongly suspect there will be) then it'll be another nice earner for them and treat for the people who go. If not, the world will not burn.

    That said I'll be pretty mortified if this doesn't sell after S Club 7 somehow managed to make an arena tour happen.

    There was never any indication that that was from poor sales though. It was just spectacularly badly handled.

    Don't get defensive, I never said there was. I just asked how global it was likely to be, considering the speculation is it's a 'worldwide' tour, and they only managed to perform in two continents last time.

    Sorry, I'm just saying that if they *want* to do an actual world tour I don't see any reason why they couldn't. The problem is last time they were all young mums and it seems like it kind of escalated beyond their control. I'm sure lessons will have been learned this time around.

    Anyway, this is all based on a Dan Wootton 'exclusive' so it may be nothing at all, it might be a world tour, or it might be something in between. Who knows?

    Well I suppose that at least this time they won't have to contend with Lady Laughless BLEATING ABOUT HER BUNIONS

    Have they ever performed outside of Western Europe and America? It's rather hard to see them doing arena tours in the likes of Australia and Japan all these years later but I suppose it all depends on pricing.

    I think Australian dates in particular would be very warmly received (unless the fans operate a 'fool me once...' policy :D ). They were hugely popular there anyway, and Geri and Mel B have done enough TV work there to keep the flame alive.

    I'm surprised they've never played an Asian date actually. Istanbul seems to have been as far East as they ever got.

    I think if it was a world tour they would have to do Australia and Brazil this time or face the WRATH

    But surely there's a good portion of people who wouldn't go JUST because it's not the full group. Even if it is Posh.

    Victoria should just agree to a cameo at the end like THIS

    and then they can still bill it as the five of them and everybody wins.

    But is that a reason not to do it, because some people don't want to go?

    Some people DO

    Are we seriously arguing about Victoria Beckham? the most bland and boring one? They did a foursome tour before and I'm sure Geri is more entertaining than talentless anorexia.
