The Backstreet Boys and he Spice Girls heading out on tour together? That’s like a 90s kids’ dream come true and chance of that happening look to be getting better.
Yesterday afternoon, rumors started that both iconic groups are in the process of planning a tour thanks to an interview for the U.K. paper, The Sun with Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell.
“We are actually in early talks about maybe doing a world tour together with the Spice Girls,” he was quoted as saying, but also told fans not to put too much hope into it because there’s always that chance that the tour will be a bust.
Remember Posh Spice herself, Victoria Beckham has repeatedly said that she is not interested in a reunion; their performance at the Summer Olympics in 2012 was the one shot deal. In an interview with Vogue Paris, she revealed that she knew it was over for her during their reunion tour in 2008, “It should have been the best moment of my life, but I just wanted to be elsewhere. It wasn’t a lack of respect for the girls or the audience, but the passion just wasn’t there.”
Though Posh might not be down for a reunion, Scary Spice Mel B. said that she would be fine with a reunion especially since 2014 will mark the group’s 20th anniversary.
“It will be our 20th year anniversary next year so I’m hoping we do get together and do something,” Mel B told MTV News. “It kind of would be a shame if we didn’t.”
But even if the reunion doesn’t happen, the Backstreet Boy already having a full year ahead of them. Their Backstreet Boy Cruise is set to sail this coming October, while their “A World Like This” Tour with Avril Lavigne, will begin this May in Moncton, New Brunswick.
