Spice Girls to perform at the London Olympics
Mega pop group, the Spice Girls, are going to be performing at the London Olympics. Ginger (Geri Halliwell), 39, Baby (Emma Bunton), 36, Sporty (Melanie Chisholm), 38, Scary (Melanie Brown), 37, and Posh (Victoria Beckham), 38, are set to perform at the closing ceremony on August 12. The famed ‘90s group will perform two of their singles, including the 1996 hit “Wannabe.”
Last month, the Spice Girls, who split up in 2001, announced the creation of “Viva Forever,” a West End musical based on some of the band’s biggest hits. Producer Judy Craymer said during a press conference that she “loved what the Spice Girls did for women’s confidence” and believes “there’s something very empowering about them.” While the musical’s writer, Jennifer Saunders, said “The second I knew this project was up for grabs, I rang my agent and said I had to be involved.”
Singers George Michael, Jessie J and The Who are also expected to perform at the event.
