The Spice Girls Are Back!

Melanie Brown arriving into London yesterday with her trademark leopard skin

It's time to dust your platform shoes and get the karaoke machine out once again because the Spice Girls are back! After years of speculation and rumours, all 5 girls are expected to appear at a press conference at the 02 Millennium Dome, noon UK time. It will be the first time they have all appeared in public together for a number of years and will finally answer many of the questions circulating in the media this week. Will there be a Spice Girls TV documentary like Take That? Where will the tour be taking place? When will the "Greatest Hits" album be out?

Melanie Brown arrived back in London yesterday, bringing with her the traditional "Scary Spice" brand in the form of leopard skin outfit, boots and even baby pram. This promises to be a press meeting that will get a snowball rolling for the rest of the year. Simon Fuller and Nicky Cambell are driving the Spice bus once again and one time stow away passenger, Geri Halliwell is back on board with her old band mates. Even reluctant Melanie C has climbed aboard for what is set to be a return like no other.

The Spice Girls are back!

Love them or loathe them, there can be no denying that these five ordinary girls from Great Britain shaped the music scene of the 90's like no other band. Nothing has even come close to matching the hype and hysteria that was created when they burst onto the scene in 1996 with "Wannabe". They were the only ones since The Beatles to have such a global impact and conquer America as they did. With record sales of almost 50 million and merchandise that covered everything from cards to crackers, the Spice Girls were everywhere and everyone had an opinion on them.

This time around we might not have Emma Bunton in pony tails or Victoria Beckham in a black PVC suit (well, actually we might!) but if the reunion is managed well and 19 Management with the support of the press, hype the Spice Girls - we may just be in for a real treat.
