The Spice Girls are reuniting for a British tour next year - and Coventry's one of six cities they'll visit.
The girl group said, “We are beyond excited to be reuniting next year for a stadium tour! Bringing girl power and our message of friendship and love back to the stage feels more relevant than ever. We hope everyone can join us for one big Spice Girls party!“
The era defining, history making, best-selling female group of all time are bringing girl power back in full force as they reunite on stage for the first time since the London 2012 Olympics, hitting the Ricoh Arena as well as stadiums across the UK.
Because of her business commitments Victoria won’t be joining the girls on tour.
