The Spice Girls Who landed has been heading Glastonbury 2019.
All lovers were sent into overdrive following news that the Spice Girls will be reuniting, with the girlband going on to sell out a 13-date tour.
And amid preparations for their reunion, Mel B has reportedly confirmed that the Spice Girls are ‘in talks’ to land a headlining slot at Glastonbury Festival 2019, following wide-spread speculation.
Scary Spice dropped further hints that the band could make an appearance on the Pyramid Stage next year, as she revealed to The Sun they are currently in conversation with Glastonbury organisers Michael and Emily Eavis.
Although, Mel couldn’t resist pointing out that the Spice Girls pop background isn’t to the usual tastes of the annual festival, as she added: ‘But we’re so pop and it’s so cool… that’ll be funny to me.’
She pointed out that if the girls do get to headline Glastonbury, it would be for Mel C, as she claimed: ‘I think Mel C would really appreciate us doing that – she’s the cool one. She’s the cool Indie chick.’
Glastonbury officials are yet to confirm whether the Spice Girls will appear, but the festival has seen an array of artists perform during its coveted legend spot, held on the final day on the Pyramid Stage at Worthy Farm.
Over the years, it has seen the likes of musical icons Tom Jones, Dolly Parton, Shirley Bassey, Lionel Richie and Neil Diamond take to the stage to delight festival-goers.
Spice Girls may not be the first band that comes to mind when you think of Glastonbury, but some would argue that the girls’ monumental success over the years could make them eligible for such a performance – with their hits likely to bring a real feel-good factor to Glastonbury.
Mel B’s hints that the girls could storm the stage at Glasto next year come after festival founder Michael teased 2019’s headliners will be ‘two or three acts that have never played before’ at the three-day extravaganza.
One of the headliners for next year’s festival has already been named, with Stormzy confirming his headlining slot at Glastonbury in November.
