Yes kids! The Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls may be joining forces for a world tour. Now, now, don’t get your hopes up too high though, because according to BSB’s Brian Littrell, it’s only the slightest smidgen of a “maybe”.
“We are actually in early talks about maybe doing a world tour together with the Spice Girls,” BSB’s Brian Littrell told U.K. newspaper The Sun.
Getting the Spice Girls back together may be a little tricky, the Backstreet Boys on the other hand already got their A World Like This Tour kicking off in May and their Backstreet Boys Cruise setting sail in October. Mel B aka Scary Spice told MTV News she’s itching for a reunion in 2014 to celebrate their 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.”
And while Mel may be able to get Sporty, Baby and Ginger on board, Victoria Beckham may be a harder get: last year, she said her days with the Spice Girls were unequivocally behind her. “I realized it was finished for good in 2008, when we reformed for our reunion tour,” Beckham told Vogue Paris. “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.”
Let’s just hope Posh changes her mind.
