Spice World – 2019 Tour

Spice World – 2019 Tour was the fourth concert tour by English girl-group the Spice Girls. It commenced on 24 May 2019 in Dublin, Ireland and ended on 15 June 2019 in London, England.[1] It marked the group's first performance together since the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony, and was their first tour without Victoria Beckham, who declined to take part due to other commitments.[2][3]

SalesEdit

On 10 November 2018 several ticket-selling websites, such as Ticketmaster and See Tickets, crashed due to the overwhelming volume of people attempting to buy tickets.[4] Ticketmaster later stated that at one point, over 700,000 fans were simultaneously attempting to purchase tickets making it their busiest sale ever. The six original dates sold out within minutes, prompting the group to add additional dates in Manchester and London.[5][6] More dates were soon announced to take place in Coventry and Cardiff due to further demand.[7] On 16 November, a show in Dublin's Croke Park was announced, the band’s first in Ireland in 21 years. Consequently, the tour was renamed to Spice World – 2019 Tour.[8]
