Mel B has again hinted there could be a Spice Girls appearance at Glastonbury’s 50th anniversary next summer.
In an interview on last night’s Jonathan Ross Show, Mel said Victoria Beckham, AKA Posh Spice, has “mentioned” she might come back to the band for a Glastonbury performance.
When Jonathan Ross asked “are you gonna do Glastonbury?”, Mel replied “I’m always gonna say yes”, and added, “all five” Spice Girls have talked about it. Four of the band played a sold-out tour without Victoria earlier this year.
The interview is available to watch below. The Glastonbury chat starts around 1:40 into the video.
After the tour, in an interview back in August, Mel B told Event Magazine: “Victoria is Victoria. She didn’t want to do it. But my plan is for all five of us to do Glastonbury next year for the 50th anniversary. I’m in the process of persuading Victoria to do it. And I will make it happen.”
Last night, Ross went on to ask if performing at Glastonbury means “Victoria as well?”, Mel said: “I hope so. She hasn’t mentioned it for the sake of just mentioning it.”
Mel then admitted Victoria hasn’t mentioned this to her directly, but that her mum told Mel’s mum at a ‘Spice Girls’ mums’ garden party’.
Sky Bet are currently offering odds of 6/1 for the Spice Girls to headline the Pyramid Stage, making the band the bookie’s 11th favourite. Taylor Swift is currently favourite at 4/6, while Green Day are three places below the Spice Girls at 8/1.
Mel B, also known as Scary Spice and real name Melanie Brown, played this summer’s tour with Geri Horner (Ginger Spice), Mel C / Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice) and Emma Bunton (Baby Spice).
The 13 dates across the UK and Ireland were the group’s first tour without Victoria and their first performances since they played at London Olympics closing ceremony in 2012. The tour attracted a cumulative attendance of nearly 700,000 people.
