The Spice Girls’ musical Viva Forever was set to be massive but it look’s like their expectations for the musical where just too high!
Yesterday it was announced that the musical would come to an end due to ‘low ticket sales’ and the last show will be next week.
The Spice girls have now released a joint statement saying:
“We want to thank the cast and all the fans for their support, and although Viva Forever won’t continue in the West End we are thrilled that the thousands of people who came to the show had as much fun as we did.”
Melanie C and Emma Bunton took to Twitter to express their sadness to hear the news!
Mel C said:
Absolutely devastated our wonderful show is closing. Thank you to our brilliant cast and everybody who made the show so incredible.
I am totally gutted that our wonderful show @vivaforever is coming to an end. Thank you to all our amazing fans for your constant support!
Show’s producer Judy Craymer also said:
“The show has evolved since we first opened and is now brighter, lighter and funnier, but despite the wonderful audiences and extremely positive feedback we just can’t make it work… I’m so proud of everyone involved in this production. Viva Forever! may be taking it’s leave for now in the West End but the legacy of Spice Girls will never fade.”
With all the success that One Direction have had it’s really hard to imagine One Direction fading out but some people who think that will are the Spice Girls.
Talking recently to Heat magazine Spice Girls member Mel C gave some words of wisdom to the boys as she said:
“They seem to be breaking America, which we were lucky enough to do. My advice would be just enjoy it, because so often with success like that, it’s over so quickly … With pop bands, [fame] is often so short-lived that you have to take every opportunity that you can, and it is hard.”
“I would say that you have to rest as much as you can. I think it’s harder for boys, as well, but there’s lots of evidence that they like a bit of a party. There’s no time for hangovers, really. It can be difficult, but I have no sympathy.”
The reason why Victoria Beckham has the nickname of ‘Posh’ has never really been talked about but now the wag has talked about why she has the nickname.
Victoria said that she was called Posh all because she who would only go to nice restaurants as she said:
“I was called Posh because I liked the nice restaurants, and the nice clothes, and that was my character. I didn’t smile, even in those days.”
“There was this very strong image. And I am very much that person, even now. I get ready to go out sometimes and I catch myself in the mirror and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I’ve turned into that person’.”
Yesterday we told you that the Spice Girls where having a reality show to find the next Spice Girl to replace Victoria Beckham as she no longer wanted to be in the group but now the girls have taken to Twitter to tell the world that it’s all ‘nonsense’.
Melanie C AKA Sporty Spice told the Twitter world:
It seems there has been some Spice related nonsense written today. None of the Spice Girls would ever or could ever be replaced #justsayin x
Emma Bunton AKA Baby Spice then said:
None of the Spice Girls would ever or could ever be replaced, nonsense in the papers!!!’
If you have seen the Spice Girls recently and the footage from the the Viva Forever! premier if is clear to see that Victoria Beckham‘ doesn’t want to be in the group anymore!
Victoria is the only original Spice Girl not to attend the tour and now Melanie C, Emma Bunton,Mel B, and Geri Halliwell are looking for another Spice Girl.
But they are not just going to pick a girl as they are going to have a reality show to find the next Victoria Beckham.
Sources are now saying:
“The girls are going it alone without Victoria. They are keen to get back together and were trying to work out if they could do it as a four-piece. I think they know this is the last chance for them to get the band going again. But the Spice Girls as a foursome is not going to get them another record deal or sell out big venues. They need an extra cherry on the cake. And the cherry on the cake would be if they replaced Victoria. And that leads to the next question: who do they replace her with? At the moment it’s all being done in a very cloak-and-dagger way and not through official channels.”
Also it seems like Victoria is happy to be left out as more sources have said:
“Victoria respects all of the girls and will always support them all personally and professionally.”
As we have told you before about Mel B., and Mel. C. used to fight a lot but now she has said that her and the other girls were not always the best of friends.
Talking at the premier of the Spice Girls musical,Viva Forever, she said:
“We were the bookends, weren’t we? Victoria was one end and I was at the other.
You know what? Me and Victoria are fine now. It’s like any relationship with her and me. We fight, we argue, we make up… it’s always been like that. It’s been like that with all five of us over the years.”
