The Spice Girls have cancelled their world tour after just two months of performances and two continents amid reports of poor ticket sales.
So far, they have performed in the UK, Canada, the US and in Madrid and Cologne in Europe.
But instead of playing dates in Australia, Argentina, and China the five will finish the reunion tour in Toronto on February 26.
However, despite citing family commitments as their reason for cutting the tour short, sources close to the group say the two Mels did not want to continue.
After they were presented with a new tour schedule the friend said to the Daily Mirror: “Mel B wasn’t having any of it. She misses her husband and children and said she couldn’t go on. She’s also been flooded with US offers after her success on Dancing With Stars.
“Mel C agreed it was time to call it a day. She was the least excited about it. She also feared it might jeopardise her solo career.”
Officially, a spokesman for the girls said: “Sadly the tour needs to come to an end by the end of February due to family and personal commitments for Emma, Geri, Mel B, Melanie C and Victoria.

The Victoria Secret Angels arrived in Los Angeles today to prepare for their big show on Wednesday night. The show will take place on Wednesday the 14th but will not air until December 4th. The Spice Girls are set to perform the night of the taping. This will be their first performance since reuniting. I personally do not understand why the Spice Girls are even getting back together but that is just me…
So, we have been patiently waiting for Dec 1st when the Spice Girls are set to reform after 10 years and play a host of sell-out dates around the world, kicking off in L.A. To be honest we’ve mostly been dying to see what the ladies will be wearing. Roberto Cavalli is designing the costumes and we all saw what he did for Jennifer Lopez last week. So last night we were thrilled to hear that the wait has been made shorter with the announcement that the Spices will be performing at this year’s Victoria’s Secret catwalk show on November 15th in Hollywood. The V.S show is an annual event televised across America on CBS (that’s like ITV1!) and watched by millions of people. Supermodel front women of the lingerie giant’s famous collections have in the past included Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum, and last year Justin Timberlake opened the show. (Are you getting how glam this is yet?) So we really hope the girls are practicing hard. Whether they will be wearing Victoria’s Secret lingerie has not been announced, though we’re not sure they’ll have anything suitable for Posh’s ample busom these days…lets wait and see.
