The Spice Girls have announced four NEW dates for their reunion tour.
The tickets went on sale on Saturday morning for the long-awaited Spice World tour, delighting the iconic girl band fans by adding four new dates in Manchester and London.
They will now perform two extra nights at both the Etihad Stadium in Manchester and the Wembley Stadium due to & # 39; phenomenal question & # 39; – but fans remained unhappy because they claim that the Ticketmaster site crashed while they were trying to buy.
Exciting! The Spice Girls have announced two NEW dates for their reunion tour in Manchester and London due to & # 39; phenomenal question & # 39;
Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm (Mel C) and Melanie Brown (Mel B) come together as a four-part, without Victoria Beckham as the Spice Girls set off in 2019 next year.
The girls originally sent their fans overdrive by announcing their plans for a tour with six gigs, and ended June 15 at the Wembley Stadium in London.
As tickets were officially on sale Saturday morning, the big question was that the Spice Girls had four new dates released. Two additional dates have been added in Manchester on 29 and 31 May, while the Spice Girls will also perform in Wembley on 13 and 14 June.
Because nobody wants to miss, an enthusiastic Geri unveiled on Instagram: & IT IS FAST SELLING. NEW DATA ADDED !! & # 39;

An official poster for the Spice World 2019 tour revealed that due to & # 39; phenomenal question & # 39; now extra dates have been added.
However, fans remained unhappy because they claimed that the official ticket vendor had been constantly crashing Ticketmaster while trying to buy tickets to the gigs.
Some still managed to get the coveted tickets, others were forced to completely miss due to technical problems.
However, some fans found more tickets than they had expected, due to the pandemonium.
The fans of Spice Girls vented their anger on Twitter and wrote: "Absolutely upset, I can not get @ spicegirls tickets for my mother's birthday, but kept going crazy!
2 hours later, I resign numerous times and I finally see the Spice Girls.
Got to the verified by visa part and the site collapsed, my ticket is lost!
& # 39; Finally stepped on #ticketmaster and eventually bought many more tickets than were necessary for fear that the site would crash. But who cares, I'm going to see the @spicegirls.
Frustrated: fans remained unhappy because they claimed that the official ticket seller Ticketmaster had continually crashed when they tried to buy tickets to the gigs
& # 39; How do people actually get @spicegirlsticks … I got in line from the first second of the release for Ticketmaster to crash 70 times and then to cancel the price with € 80, I have to say goodbye to my friend of taking. & # 39;
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Ticketmaster for comment.
The girls will perform in the United Kingdom in stadiums in Manchester, Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh, Bristol and London.
They have been busy promoting their 2019 tour after having announced their reunion – much to the delight of fans – with reports claiming the girls earn $ 2.8 million each year (£ 2.2 million) against the time that their tour takes place.
Victoria Beckham will be conspicuously absent from the tour – after choosing not to reunite with the Spice Girls, while continuing to focus on her fashion world.
According to Ticketmaster, the Spice Girls sell VIP tickets for their shows for a massive £ 295. The pricey amount gives fans the best seats in the house, with a number of souvenir gifts that are collected for a good dose – but the price does not include costs.

It includes a chair in the golden circle at the front of the stage, a Spice Girls 2019 VIP tour laminate, an exclusive Limited Edition Girl Power enamel pin badge. There is also a VIP gift bag and a postcard set from the 2019 commemoration period.
Other tickets can be picked up for £ 55 (with a £ 5 surcharge for London's girl band data).
However, amidst the chaos that ensued when tickets were released on sale, VIP packages have now seen the best Spice Girls tickets advertised on resale sites for as much as £ 2083.
Usual seats ranging from £ 55 to about £ 180 were flogged for prices ranging from £ 149 to £ 1197 on Viagogo – just two hours after the original tickets were on sale at 10:30.
The Spice Girls were originally expected to pay £ 10million each from the tour, but it has now been reported that they would earn £ 2.2 million.
According to TMZ they will each make almost £ 418,000 per show. Although they could potentially bring in more money if the shows were an indication of a possible world tour and would each earn up to £ 5 million.
Although fashion designer Victoria, 44, will not join the girls on tour, she took the time to make a statement about the exciting announcement.

On Instagram she said: & # 39; Being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish my girls so much love and pleasure when they go back on tour, & # 39; said the mother of the four.
I know that they will put on a great show and that the fantastic fans from past and present will have a great time! & # 39;
Mel B teased that Victoria would accompany them on their Wembley date, but her spokesman insisted she was just playful.
Meanwhile, Mel C recently revealed during an interview with the Spice Girls on the Jonathan Ross Show that Victoria said that she & # 39; never really asked & # 39; when she wanted to go back to the girl belt.
She explained: & # 39; You know what actually is very funny … I saw Victoria recently and of course we all had contact, she is still part of the Spice Girls, she really supports us and we really support her .
& # 39; But she has brought to the point that she was never actually asked. We just assumed. & # 39;
A lot of debate: her decision not to participate in the reunion led to a lot of discussion between the Spice Girls with Mel C, in which Victoria claimed that she was never asked & # 39;
This caused Emma's intercourse, in disagreement with Mel, insistently that she was indeed asked.
"She just did not want to … She was busy with her fashion and she went on.
The philosophy of our destiny is that we are a bond, in and out of the stage and we care about each other, we support each other and we support her and she has a big part of our lives and we care about her, so it's all good. & # 39;
Geri added: "I spoke to her two days ago, before the announcement, and she has said it for years that she just does not want to do it anymore, so we knew that. & # 39;
Since the last reform of the girls – the performance of 2012 during the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in London – there have been rumors about the possible reformation of the band for a full tour, which even more whispers that Victoria was never a fan of action .
Back in their hey day: The Spice Girls have become famous in the early 90's and found themselves in 37 countries at the top of the charts with their debut single Wannabe, released in 1996
Memorable: fans will undoubtedly remember the girls' performances during the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in London, where they arrived in the arena on black taxi's
Geri solved this when Jonathan asked him: "No, and you do not want anyone to do something they do not want to do."
The Spice Girls have become famous in the early nineties and were in the top of the charts in 37 countries with their debut single Wannabe, released in 1996.
The band split in 2000, two years after Geri announced her departure from the band. They were later reunited in 2007 and have entertained fans with their world tour The Return Of The Spice Girls, before they went to the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.
Since then, the speculation is widespread that the girls will re-form, with rumors reaching a peak in 2016. It was 20 years ago that the first single of the girls was released.
