Emma Bunton Says She’s Ready For a 20th Anniversary Spice Girls Reunion
China or platinum are traditionally 20th anniversary gifts, but in the world of pop music, we might soon get a little celebratory spice, instead.
As the 20th anniversary of the Spice Girls' debut album, Spice, approaches, rumors continue to circulate that the ladies may consider a reunion tour run. And though Emma Bunton seemed unsure it was possible earlier this year, she's now all in for a homecoming.
"I’d love to! We all talk about it — it would be great fun, wouldn’t it?" she told PEOPLE in an interview published yesterday (September 29). "We got to celebrate somehow."
And thankfully, she's not the only former Girl Power advocate who's committed to getting the gang back together. In a TODAY show interview in August, Mel B said the world was in need of a bit more of the band's flavor.
"When you say it’s our twentieth anniversary coming up, it does make you think, ‘Oh, my gosh, it really has been that long.” she said. “Hopefully, we’ll gather the troops around, and we’ll get to do something to celebrate it next year…it’s in my plan; I don’t know about anybody else’s."
The Spice Girls most recently reunited for the Closing Ceremonies at the Olympic Games in London in 2012. Their last official tour—The Return of the Spice Girls—found them globe-trotting between 2007 and 2008.
