Backstreet’s back, alright? Just not with The Spice Girls.
A few months ago, the Internet started buzzing with the rumor of a possible Spice Girls reunion tour. Since then, there has been a lot of conflicting news. While some of the girls denied any talks of a reunion, some reports claimed that a reunion was happening sans Victoria Beckham. And most recently, Geri Halliwell renewed hope of a reunion when she revealed that there have indeed been talks amongst the girls to get together to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
Nick Carter wanted a piece of the spice pie, he’d love it if they joined the Backstreet Boys on tour. He told E! News that he’s been trying to make the tour happen, explaining: “I think this would be that last hurrah—the two big groups from the late ’90s. Maybe do a world tour, stadiums, stuff like that and do a package together.”
Unfortunately, it’s a no-go.
The guys ended the chatter in a new interview. saying: “From what I’ve heard, they want to do their own tour,” said A.J. McLean. “I think it’s their 20th anniversary, were back in the studio making a brand new album, so everyone’s doing their own thing.”
He added, “God willing, down the road, maybe it could happen. But as of right now it’s not happening. They’re doing their thing, we’re focusing on our thing. But I think it would be something awesome if it did happen.”
They also revealed a new album should be out “by the end of the year or beginning of next year” with a single in the spring time.
And speaking of the Spice Girls… Adele decided to break into “Spice Up Your Life” at her latest 25 concert:
