Spice Girls reunion: How Victoria Beckham will still earn a fortune despite not taking part
- Spice Girls have announced a new UK tour that will see them perform in 2019
- But Victoria Beckham said she won’t take part due to business commitments
- However, Posh Spice is still expected to earn a fortune from the new UK tour
The Spice Girls will return to spice up your life in June 2019, even though Victoria Beckham said she won’t be there.
The 2019 UK tour will see Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner reunite as Spice Girls for the first time since the 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony and over ten years since they last toured, but Posh Spice said she won’t take part in the reunion due to ‘business commitments’.
In a statement following the reunion news, Victoria said: ‘Being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish my girls so much love and fun as they go back on tour, I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time!’
Spice Girls have announced a new UK tour that will see them perform in six venues in 2019
However, even though Spice Girls fans probably won’t get to see Posh joining in and performing the band’s greatest hits such as Wannabe, Say You’ll Be There and 2 Become 1, she will still make a fortune, adding to her already impressive net worth.
According to the Sun, Victoria Beckham will make ‘millions’ from the UK tour that will see Ginger Spice, Scary Spice, Baby Spice and Sporty Spice in six cities including London and Manchester.
That’s because as an original member of the 1990s pop sensation, Victoria owns a significant stake in the band’s image and music rights.
She is still listed as a company director of Spice Girls Limited, which is the company that owns the Spice Girls trademark, with the other four members of the band also serving as directors.
According to reports from June, the tour is expected to generate the singers as much as £150 million, meaning that Victoria could be in line to earn as much as £30 million without having to sing one word.
With Mel B suggesting there could be a world tour to follow, that figure could balloon even higher.
In their heyday, the Spice Girls earnt as much as $75 million (£58m) a year, while their 2007 reunion tour netted them another $70 million (£54m).
There is also the money generated by the songwriting fees, which the Spice Girls will get having co-written most of the band’s hits.
