say you’ll be there

Clear your schedules and mark your calendars, the Spice Girls announced earlier today that they are reuniting and will be playing in Buenos Aires on January 24, 2008. At a press conference this morning, they shared the details of their plan: releasing a Best of album and doing a world tour at the end of the year.

I was too old to take part in the Spice Girls mania a decade ago (minus a momentary obsession with their gum while in middle school, but we don’t need to get into that), but enough time has passed that today I can actually enjoy the quintet and their songs for what they are– kitschy, catchy pop silliness. The work that I’ve been doing for an upcoming book about women, music, and pop culture in the 1990s certainly hasn’t helped the band’s newfound position as guilty pleasure, and I totally called the reunion a few days ago on soy so lindo. Needless tosay, I’ve already registered to get tickets. They’re making only eleven stops on the tour, and Buenos Aires is the only South American city to get a visit from the quintet, so this really is your only chance to bask in the glorious glow of 90s pop culture icons.

Check out their website to register for tickets, or watch their video for laughs. And, pretty please, take me as your plus-one if you score a pair of tix?!–REBECCA

    I know! She’s gotten a lot worse ever since she got with Beckham. She *almost* looks human in the old SG videos.
