The official Spice Girls website made this statement today:

"......Due to the phenomenal demand for tickets in the UK and the US along with the touring logistics for such a massive production it was not possible to fit everything in. As the girls return to normal family life and the kids go back to school they are reviewing all the options, who knows what the future might bring!

The girls said: “We’ve had such an amazing time over the last 3 months. It’s been incredible being back together and seeing our fans again. We want to thank everyone who came to see us. It was all so mad the first time round, so we’ve really been able to appreciate it properly this time. There have been so many highlights and good times that we know it will be hard to be apart after Toronto. Really sorry if we didn’t get to see you this time round. We all have other commitments in our lives now but who knows what will happen next."

Fans have reacted angrily across Australasia at the breaking news , which has shocked many. The "Greatest Hits" album went to #1 in Australia when it was released before Christmas and now fans feel betrayed because the shows will not now take place. Spice Girls fans vented their anger on a popular forum, saying the Spice Girls had only reformed for money and not for the fans.
