It’s the news Spice Girls fans around the country have been anxiously waiting for… they are bringing their tour to Australia!
Mel B made the announcement on stage at the end of the group’s final show at London’s Wembley Stadium.
“We’ll see you in February in Australia!” she declared.
This will be the first time the group has ever played a concert in Australia. We are yet to hear any further details.

The Spice Girls embarked on their reunion tour — without Victoria Beckham — in late May and have played in Dublin, Cardiff, Manchester, Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh and Bristol.
Only a few hours ago, the group ended their long-awaited UK reunion tour with a rendition of their hits including Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life.
As the concert came to a close, they were joined by their families, with Geri remarking: “You saw three generations of Spice Girls.”
Geri, or Ginger Spice, also apologised to her bandmates for leaving the Spice Girls in 1998, two years before the rest of the group went on hiatus.
Between songs, she said: “I’m sorry. I’m sorry I left. I was just being a brat. I want to say it’s just so good to be back with the girls that I love.”
They also led the crowd in an impromptu singalong of Adele’s Someone Like You after announcing that the Grammy-award winning singer was in the audience.
Before the show, Geri and Emma shared selfies with Adele on their social media accounts.
Ginger Spice captioned the photo “Finally together” while Emma described the singer as a “gorgeous lady”.
Following the show, an emotional Geri posted a video in which she thanked everyone involved in the tour.
“So we’re done. It’s done,” she said.
“Thirteen stadiums, Almost 700,000 people with three amazing women I’ve shared that stage with.
“I want to say thank you to Melanie, Melanie and Emma and everybody who showed up for us. It has been something that I will never ever forget. Thank you so much. Big love from the Spice World.”
