Group to reunite for Nelson Mandela concert
The Spice Girls are being asked to reunite for a special concert after their tour ends this month.
The group are being lined up to headline Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday concert in June.
‘Nelson is desperate for them to perform one last time – and he’s confident it will happen,’ says a source.
‘He first met the Spices in 1997 and called them his “heroes”, so he has deep admiration for them.’
Posh, Ginger, Baby, Sporty and Scary will join the likes of U2, Queen, Annie Lennox and Robbie Williams for the gig, which will take place in London’s Hyde Park.
‘This concert is going to be the talk of the decade,’ the source tells the Daily Mirror. ‘Nelson is a hero and thousands of fans will turn out to support him – as well as the biggest names in showbiz.’
The Spice Girls final tour gig will be in Toronto, Canada, on 26 February.
