Spice Girls “signed on board” for Glastonbury Festival 2020
The Spice girls are planning to make a full line-up return with a headline slot at Glastonbury Festival 2020.
Having recently reunited a series of comeback shows without original member Victoria Beckham, the ’90s pop group have claimed that discussions are underway for Posh Spice to return to the band for a one-off show at Glastonbury next year.
It is thought that festival organisers Michael and Emily Eavis are planning major surprises for the 2020 edition of Glastonbury, a year which will mark the event’s 50th anniversary.
Now, while speaking to fans at as part of a Q&A session titled ‘A Brutally Honest Evening with Mel B’, Scary Spice hinted that a festival performance is a major possibility: “I think if you are just going to do Glastonbury then let’s just go on tour and do the rest of Europe,” she said as part of the book show at London’s Savoy Theatre.
She added: “We are definitely signed on board to do that. All five of us, yes.”
The difficult decision to play a series of UK shows as a four-piece has been a tricky logistical problem for the band, but Mel B has heaped praise on Beckham and her career: “Victoria is Victoria,” she said according to NME. “She’s made an amazing career based on the Spice Girls. She’s got a fashion empire and she’s done amazingly well. But you can’t beat being Posh Spice in the Spice Girls, can you? You can’t beat that.”
She finalised: “My plan is for all five of us to do Glastonbury next year for the 50th anniversary. I’m in the process of persuading Victoria to do it. And I will make it happen.”
