Emma Bunton to play solo and Spice Girls songs on freshly announced UK tour

The December gigs will also see her perform Christmas classics

Emma Bunton has shared details of a December UK tour that will be Christmas-themed alongside performances of her solo songs and Spice Girls hits.

The Spice Girl, who released her fourth solo album ‘My Happy Place’ in 2019 after 13 years away, is revisiting the concept of a one-off festive show that she held at London’s Royal Albert Hall in 2019.

Bunton’s new tour will also be a festive celebration, and fans are promised that special guests will join the singer at points on stage.

Meanwhile, last year Spice Girls’ Mel C revealed that the band are “constantly” in talks about reuniting for another tour.

Mel C (aka Sporty Spice), who is part of the predominantly dormant pop group alongside Bunton, Mel B, Geri Halliwell and Victoria Beckham, said they could be heading out on the road again following on from their 2019 reunion stadium tour.

Appearing as a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in December 2021, the pop star was asked whether there could be another reunion.

“I really hope so,” she told stand-in host Howard Mandel. “We’re talking about it. We are talking about it constantly. It was always the plan. We did these amazing stadium shows two years ago. It was the best thing we’ve ever done. The creative was so incredible. We had the best time.”

She added that the group had to “come back to the US, [because] our fans here are amazing”.
