They’ve hired Madonna’s tour director

The Spice Girls have hired Jamie King, Madonna’s tour director, for their reunion shows.

And they were lucky to get him.

‘Jamie King was our first choice,’ Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller tells The Sun.

‘He is one of the world’s very best live show directors/producers and choreographers, having worked with all of the greats, including Madonna and Prince.

‘Everyone has the same vision for this show, it will be a roller coaster of fun.’

And Jamie is thrilled to be working with Posh, Baby, Geri and the two Mels.

‘Collaborating with the Spice Girls presents one of those exceptional opportunities to create a truly iconic live performance,’ he says.

‘As a group, their dynamic is provocative, compelling and undeniably sexy, which truly drives my creative inspiration.’
