*Welcome to The Spice Girls Fan Club *

Show you 're girl power !




The Spice Girl 's showed girl's around the world that they could be themselves without worrying about what other people would think about them !

The Spice Girls were an English pop girl group formed in 1994.

They consisted of :






They are the most successful girl group of all time.

They were signed to Virgin Records and released their debut single, "Wannabe", in 1996. The song hit number-one in 31 countries and helped establish the group as a "global phenomenon".Credited for being the pioneers that paved the way for the commercial breakthrough of teen pop in the 1990s, their first album, Spice, sold more than 23 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling album by a female group in music history. They have sold 65 million records worldwide with only four albums and twelve singles, making them the most successful British band since The Beatlesand the best selling girl group of all time. Measures of their success include international record sales, a 2007/2008 reunion tour, merchandising, record breaking achievements, iconic symbolism such as the Union Flag dress, "Girl Power", a box office hit movie Spice World and their nicknames.

Under the guidance of their long time mentor and manager Simon Fuller, the group embraced merchandising and became a regular feature of the British press. Each member of the group was given an alias by Top of the Pops magazine in 1996, which were adopted by the group and media alike. According to biographer David Sinclair, "Scary, Baby, Ginger, Posh and Sporty were the most widely recognized group of individuals since John, Paul, George and Ringo."

They are the biggest cultural icons of the 1990s, according to a survey carried out by Trivial Pursuit, winning by 80 percent in a poll of 1,000 people carried out for the board game, stating that "Girl Power" defined the decade.

In May 1998, Geri Halliwell left the group in the middle of numerous rumors. The four remaining members released the third album, but went their separate ways in late 2000 to focus on their solo careers. On 28 June 2007 all five re-formed before the launch of their Reunion Tour in December, alongside the release of their Greatest Hits album. In December, a new official documentary Giving You Everything aired on various television networks around the globe. The tour was a success and is estimated to have grossed over US$70 million. The tour won the Billboard 2008 Touring Award for Top Boxscore for a 17-night stand at London's O2 Arena.

Solo Careers :


Melanie Brown [ Scary Spice ]

Brown had four UK top 20 singles, including two top 10 and her number one hit, "I Want You Back" featuring Missy Elliott.After the release of her last single, "Today", and her last album, L.A. State of Mind, which both failed to make an impact, Brown became more successful in television and stage musical activities. In total, she sold over 500,000 records as a solo artist.

Geri Halliwell [ Ginger Spice ]

Geri became the first Spice Girl to release a solo album. After her departure from the group in 1998 she signed a record deal with EMI. Her first album 'Schizophonic' was released in 1999. It became a Top 5 hit, going double-platinum in the UK. The album spawned three #1 hits in the UK (Mi Chico Latino, Lift Me Up, and Bag It Up) and a #2 hit (Look At Me). Her second album, 'Scream If You Wanna Go Faster' was released in 2001. It too became a Top 5 hit. The album contained the #1 hit 'Its Raining Men' which would go on to sell more than 3 million copies worldwide(the most successful single from a solo Spice). In 2005 Geri released her final solo album Passion, the album produced the Top 5 hit 'Ride It.' Geri went on to score a total of nine consecutive Top 10 hits(including four #1 hits) and according to 19 management, has sold over 12 million records as a solo artist, making her the most successful solo act to come from the Spice Girls.

Melanie Chisholm [ Sporty Spice ]

Chisholm took her first steps in establishing a solo career in late 1998 by singing with Canadian rocker Bryan Adams on the song "When You're Gone". Her debut album, Northern Star was released in 1999, became more successful than Schizophonic and Forever in UK, where it was certified 3 Platinum,and certified 2 Platinum for selling more than 2 million copies in Europe alone.The album produced two number one singles, "Never Be the Same Again" featuring Lisa Lopes and "I Turn To You". After the release of three more albums, Chisholm temporarily stopped recording and concentrated on motherhood. So far, Chisholm sold close to 10 million records worldwide.

Emma Bunton [ Baby Spice ]

Bunton released her first solo single in 1999, "What I Am".The song, a cover, was in collaboration with the English duo Tin Tin Out. After strong competition from fellow Spice girl Halliwell, it reached number 2 in the UK with Halliwell's Lift Me Up peaking at number 1. In 2001, she released her debut album, A Girl Like Me, certified Gold in UK.The album spawned three top 5 singles including her number one single, "What Took You So Long". In 2003, Bunton's second album, Free Me was released in UK, and also was certified Gold.The second album became more successful than her debut album. After the release of her last album, Life In Mono (#65), and her last single, "All I Need To Know" (#60), which both failed to chart inside UK Top 40, let alone 20 or 10, she temporarily took a break on music industry to focus on acting in television and films. In total, Bunton sold more than 2 million records worldwide.

Victoria Beckham [ Posh Spice ]

Beckham was the last to develop a solo career. She released her first solo single in 2000, "Out of Your Mind", in collaboration with Dane Bowers and Truesteppers. The single debuted at number 2 in UK and became one of the fastest selling singles of 2000. In 2001, Beckham released her self-titled album which only peaked at number 10. After the release of her debut album, Beckham worked on a follow up and planned to release it in 2003 after her hit singles "Let Your Head Go" and "This Groove" which released as a double A-side in December 2003 it peaked at number 3 in the UK Singles Chart. Beckham did not like the result of the album and shelved it. She planned to release more urban and R&B music. Beckham again worked on some tracks for a possible album, but due to her sudden pregnancy in 2004 she cancelled all plans for her singing career and only focused on fashion where she became more successful. Both the unreleased albums Open Your Eyes and Come Together leaked online and became favourites on You Tube.She is currently the only Spice never to have had a British solo number 1. She is also the only Spice to have all her released albums and singles peak in the top 10. In total, Beckham sold more than 600,000 units.

The Return of the Spice Girls (20072008)

On 28 June 2007, the group held a press conference at The O2 in London, formally announcing their intention to reunite. The plan to reform had long been speculated by the media,but the group finally confirmed their intention to embark upon a world wide concert tour, starting in Vancouver on 2 December 2007.Filmmaker Bob Smeaton, directed an official documentary on the reunion. It was entitled Spice Girls: Giving You Everything and was first aired on Australia's Fox8 on 16 December 2007, followed by BBC One in the UK, on 31 December.[

n date of "The Return of the Spice Girls" World Tour sold out in 38 seconds. It was reported that over one million people signed up in the UK alone and over five million worldwide for the ticket ballot on the band's official website. Sixteen additional dates in London had been added and sold out. In the United States, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Jose shows also sold out, prompting additional dates to be added.It was announced that the Spice Girls would be playing dates in Chicago and Detroit (Auburn Hills) and Boston, as well as additional dates in New York to keep up with the demand. On the first concert in Canada, they performed to an audience of 15,000 people, singing twenty songs and changing a total of eight times.

Along with the tour sellout, the Spice Girls licensed their name and image to Tesco's UK supermarket chain.[The band have reportedly been paid 5 million for their appearances in Tesco advertisements.[63]

The group's comeback single, "Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)", was announced as the official Children in Need charity single for 2007 and was released 5 November. The first public appearance on stage by the Spice Girls was made at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, where the group performed at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

Australia was the only country for the album to debut and reach number 1.This is the first Spice Girls album to reach number 1 in Australia. To date, their Greatest Hits album has been declared platinum in Australia and the UK, and gold in the United States, Canada, Brazil and New Zealand.

On 22 December 2007, the Spice Girls pre-recorded a performance of "2 Become 1" on the finale of Strictly Come Dancing.

On 1 February 2008, it was announced that due to personal and family commitments their tour would come to an end in Toronto on 26 February 2008, meaning that tour dates in Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Sydney, Cape Town and Buenos Aires were canceled. The demand for tickets was unprecedented, the Girls ended up performing 47 sell out shows, when they had originally planned only 11.

The Spice Girls Reunion Tour netted 16.5 million (US$33 million) for the London dates alone, making them the highest-grossing concert act of 2008. In total, the world tour banked more than $70 million in gross ticket sales. The Spice Girls ranked No. 50 in the World's Most Powerful Celebrities 2008, according to business magazine Forbes.

In March 2008, the group won the coveted "Icon Awards" at the 95.8 Capital Awards; Emma Bunton and Melanie C collected the award. In June, they captured the Glamour Award for the Best Band; Bunton, Melanie B and Halliwell received the award at the event. In September, the Spice Girls won the "Best Live Return Award" at the 2008 Live Vodafone Music Awards, beating acts such as Led Zeppelin and the Sex Pistols. Bunton was there to collect the award. In November 2008, Billboard announced the Spice Girls as the winners in the "Top Boxscore" category of the Billboard Touring Awards, for their 17 show stint at the O2 Arena in London.

Second reunion Rumours (2009)

In September 2009, rumours emerged of a second Spice Girls reunion after Brown, Chisholm, Halliwell and Bunton were photographed having a night out in London.[76][77] Victoria Beckham was absent from the night due to her work schedule. Brown then mused about the possibilities of another tour on her Twitter.

Halliwell was then quoted during a television interview saying; "We always talk about creative plans and possibilities, definitely... And yes [we did talk about that last week]. Right now, we are gathering information and thinking about possibilities... but when you're evolving a plan you don't share it to the world until it's concrete...If they do cement themselves, I'll be the first to tell you."

Brown then responded to questions regarding another reunion via her official message board, saying; "I would love to tell you. But until all 5 of us have finalized everything, out of respect for each other and the Spice brand, mums the word for now. All 5 of us are in discussions right now, I'll let you know what we decide on once all 5 of us agree. But it is all very exciting!"

Bunton then told readers of Now Magazine that they had been discussing work-related subjects and that she's "...sure all five of us will be catching up again soon. Watch this space!" Bunton also stated later that the Spice Girls would not be reuniting for the world cup.

In mid-October, Melanie C denied on GMTV denied all rumours about a possible reunion with Spice Girls, explaining that it is not to have a comeback at the moment.

Reports suggest that the Spice Girls are to star in a reality show in which they'll cast actresses to play them in a musical, though neither of the girls have confirmed nor denied this rumour.
