Victoria Beckham shoots down rumors of a Spice Girls tour

Breathe a zig-a-zig sigh of disappointment: the Spice Girls are not headed out on a reunion tour, says Victoria Beckham.

The designer formerly known as Posh Spice shot down any and all speculation that the popular British girl group were teaming up once again Saturday at New York Fashion Week.

“I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour,” she told Vogue.

Beckham got tongues wagging last week with an Instagram photo that featured all five Spice Girls hanging out together at Geri Horner’s house.

“Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!! X Exciting x #friendshipneverends #girlpower,” she wrote.

TMZ further fueled the flames days later when it reported that the “Wannabe” singers were reuniting for a world tour throughout the U.K. and the U.S.

Even though Beckham said it was “so great” to see Horner, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton once again, a tour is not in the cards — at least, not right now.

The success starts to pour in! After their first series of singles topped charts in more than 53 countries, the world knew these girls were here to stay. In Nov. of 1996, the group released their debut album "Spice" in Europe with a reaction the mirror Beatlemania. Millions of copies were sold before it even reached its United States release later in Feb. of 1997.

The Spice Girls through the years

“There’s something so strong in the message of what the Spice Girls stood for. What is that in the future? What does that look like? We were just bouncing ideas around. Brainstorming,” she said, adding that her 6-year-old daughter Harper is a fan of the skin-tight dress she dons in 1997’s “Spice World” movie.

“It’s a positive thing. You know, there’s so much bad stuff going on, and the Spice Girls were about fun and celebrating individuality. I think there’s so much that the brand can do, and it’s such a positive message for young kids.”

Publicist Jo Milloy confirmed that the girls were planning something together, though, saying in a statement that “the time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together.”

The Spice Girls, with their unique nicknames and frothy pop, first formed in 1994 and released three albums before kicking off an indefinite hiatus in 2000.

They briefly reunited for a tour and the documentary “Spice Girls: Giving You Everything” in 2007, then came together again the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony.
