Spice Girls tour to make big bucks

The Star (Jamaica) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The Spice Girls will earn over US$3 mil­lion each for their UK tour. The Mama hit­mak­ers an­nounced ear­lier this week that four of the orig­i­nal mem­bers of the group – Geri Horner, Emma Bun­ton, Mel B and Mel C – will be re­unit­ing for six sta­dium shows next sum­mer.

It has now been re­vealed that they will bring in around $550,000 each per show.

And ac­cord­ing to TMZ, if the gigs prove pop­u­lar enough when tick­ets go on sale at the week­end, more dates will be added out­side the UK and the quar­tet will earn around $6.5 mil­lion each.

De­spite the im­pres­sive sums, it was pre­vi­ously claimed a re­union of all five mem­bers, in­clud­ing fash­ion de­signer Vic­to­ria Beck­ham, would have gen­er­ated around $13 mil­lion for each of them.

Though she has opted not to be in­volved in the re­union, Vic­to­ria re­cently sent a mes­sage of sup­port to her for­mer band­mates.

The Spice Girls per­form dur­ing the clos­ing cer­e­mony at the 2012 Sum­mer Olympics.
