The Spice Girls are set to “explore some incredible new opportunities” - so what would you ideally like them to? ohmy.gif
Michael Andrew
A few nights in the O2 would be my dream.

If I'm being greedy, a new single and a re-issue of the Greatest Hits (maybe including 1 or 2 solo hits for each).

... And more Tesco ads for Christmas! Haha!
sammy01
Well a new 5 piece photo shoot with them all looking amazing.

Some re-releases of the 3 studio albums with the b-sides demos and unreleased tracks. The GH on vinyl.

A coffee table book, pics from through the years with each making little footnotes on the pics.

Ideally a UK tour, similar to Xmas in Spice world.

Some big group interviews like with Graham Norton.

A TV show, I know this isnt high up on everyone's list but would be nice to see them on TV every week for a couple of months.

Ideally a new studio album with 3 or 4 singles released from it.

If that is out of the question a new greatest hits with a new amazing upbeat single.

Obviously another tour would be great but would many of them commit to it?

Overall if music isn't involved it just doesn't feel that exciting.

I don't think a new album would work now so maybe some unreleased tracks with the new GH and tour and a new book would be great too
d22ghj
Give us all the unreleased tracks that have been teased for years.
December Dong
I would love a new album, but mainly made up of unreleased tracks, with W.O.M.A.N the lead single, as it should have been in 1999, leading to Holler/ album launch in 2000 with more momentum, then a Let Love Lead The Way, then finally Right Back At Ya/ If You Want To (Have Some Fun) double A-side to close the era.
Spiceboy
New album, singles, dvd, tour, performance at Brits, full time band foreveeeeer!

Now back to reality. Tbh thing I’d want most is a tour. I’d be delighted with a unreleased tracks album or EP too. Something along the lines of Steps though would be the absolute dream!

If only they'd gotten back together in 02 or 04, we might have got that laugh.gif But then again, the nostalgia factor wouldn't have kicked in, and they would still be hated by the press/ uncool.

An album, remastered unreleased and B-sides plus a few new ones, with a small tour - or a bigger tour where four of them do it at one time, leaving one to rest with their families, as that is a big thing for them, especially Geri atm - plus maybe that Spice Girls talent show.

A final Wembley Stadium one-week residency, filmed in HD for a blu-ray release.
A new album with collaborations with current female artists.
A repackaged Greatest Hits with previously unreleased tracks.
A retrospective hardback book.
Every album on vinyl.
December Dong
That idea of a new album with collaborations with current femar stars could work!!
ChristMaz!
A new GH with unreleased tracks
A one off Hyde Park gig filmed for television+Blu Ray/DVD
A documentary ''one hour of girl power style'' with all 5 sitting together and tell their story
A few tv performances and interviews.

I've really gone overboard, 99% of this is undoubtedly unrealistic. kink.gif I certainly don't anticipate them doing anything this month, but if I was in charge, I'd be getting the ball rolling instantly!

February 2018:

- Creation of official Spice Girls social media accounts on Twitter / Facebook / Instagram.
- Greatest Hits re-released in a new deluxe edition, including a bonus disc with previously unreleased material/rarities [Released: 23rd Feb] (Original 2007 version would also be available alongside it, as a cheaper option to attract casual sales. Also, GH is finally re-added to UK Spotify!).
- Announced as having won Brit Icon Award.
- Perform a hits medley at the Brits (I would include: Wannabe / Say You'll Be There / Who Do You Think You Are / Spice Up Your Life / Stop). [21st Feb]
- Announce their tour, initially just European dates (but with the promise that other worldwide dates are to be announced soon) [22nd Feb]
- Appear as a 5 piece on Graham Norton, an interview in promotion of the tour & Greatest Hits. Also perform Wannabe. [23rd Feb]

May 2018:

I hope I don't offend any fans with my suggestion of a tour just being Europe/North America & Australia. I'd love them to go everywhere, but I have a feeling that if they did tour, it'd probably be a miracle if they even did Australia, let alone anywhere else outside of Europe & North America.

A remake of this:

From the sublime to the ridiculous angel.gif
troublepink
I just want a tour, with at least one date in Manchester that isn't on a night that I usually work... not too much to ask for is it? tongue.gif

They were my favourite band when I was a kid, I had Spice Girls everything and then they went and broke up on my 11th birthday. I was crushed, actually hated them for a while.

Imagine if ITV did a Big Reunion Spice Girls special so that we could see them get back together, in the studio and tour rehearsals wub.gif
Michael Andrew
I wouldn't like them to associate themselves with 'The Big Reunion'. I think it would cheapen their brand.

They've always done things their way. And that show reeks of desperation.

No disrespect to acts who do it. It's more to do with how it's dramatised than the stars of the show.

But a TV special, yes please!
Jay ☆
So now we have 11 UK stadium dates confirmed for May/June 2019 - but what else would you love out of this reunion? ohmy.gif


I'd really like to see them do another TV performance. Imagine a Spice Girls medley performed at the X Factor finale? wub.gif

New music, of course. Now that they're a four piece, I feel like there's no reason they shouldn't explore this and add something to their rather small discography.

It would be great if they were able to extend the tour to overseas, in particular going to Australia. Greatest Hits got to #1 there in 2007, I think they should be rewarded. tongue.gif

I'm still hopeful for some album re-issues, and vinyl!
Mr.X
Great thinking. These are a bit far fetched, specially how global the tour would be, but whatever a Spice Boy can dream.

1) Repackage the Greatest Hits with unreleased tracks (no new stuff) ready for Christmas period
2) Extend the tour to mainland Europe, USA, South America, Asia, Australia and South Africa. Honour the places they never visited before.
3) Get the ICON award at the Brits 2019 and perform a medley
4) Set up an initiative that supports young women singers in the UK thrive
5) Release a Spice Girls book
6) Release a documentary of the tour with full-lenght footage of the tour
7) Get nominated and win for MTV's Best Live Act award in 2020

UPDATED:

8) Do a Spice Girls at the BBC show like Ariana Grande, Adele, etc. I LOVED Ariana's performances with a full orchestra. IMAGINE them performing live with a full orchestra!!!
9) Release all the albums on Vinyl and re-release the original CDs with new content. This is not hard and a group of their magnitude should be perfectly fine to do that!!
Jay ☆
heart.gif Would love for all of that to happen, particularly the Brits. The Brits is such an iconic part of their story with that performance and it'd be lovely to see them perform there again.

I think I read that they've had a camera crew following them during their promotional moments this past week, could that be for a documentary? Or maybe it's just for behind the scenes stuff for social media. Either way, I would love to see more content from them.
Mr.X
Oh nice! Didnt know about that, but would be great to have more behind the scenes stuff. They LOVE making documentaries don't they? Not that I am complaining but unless it is something new to talk about, I feel like another celebratory documentary might be a bit naff...

WHICH GAVE ME THE TOUGHT: I would love for them to do a TV Special like Ariana Grande and Adele did at the BBC. IMAGINE them performing with a full orchestra? THAT WOULD BE AMAIZNG!!
Jay ☆
Oh my goodness, yes! Spice Girls at the BBC would be incredible, a mix of performances and interviews... someone make it happen!

I'd much rather than that another documentary, I think. I mean I wouldn't say no to a documentary, but if they were to do that I'd really want them to sit down as a four piece and reminisce together (or five... would Victoria join them for something like that?). I think another "separate interviews" documentary would be quite pointless though.

Highly unlikely, but on the subject of vinyl - I'd love if there were some vinyl editions of the singles, like the 2013 release of Wannabe.
Mr.X
Oh yes I forgot about the Vinyl and re-release of all the albums! It is quite CRAZY to me that a group as big as the Spice Girls never thought to re-release their albums with more content over the years. Everybody else does it, it is about time they get on with it!

Will update the original post x
