Melanie C was quoted saying this in a new interview

Will the Spice Girls get back together again?

Victoria (Beckham) doesn’t want to perform again but the rest of us talk about the possibility of doing something – if the right thing came along.

What do you think? would you go see them on tour without the Posh one or is that soooo 2000 and it has to be all five or nothing at all now?

If they do come back I can only see them trying to be "modern" and it'll ruin their image/style because they will be trying to look young.

A few 'Anti-tour' type shows would be nice, performing fan favourites etc. That would be it though...

Did they though? they had a celebration of the past in 2007/08 & again in 2012 but they never really had a comeback.

victoria was always my least favourite and the one that contributed the least vocally, so i'd be very happy with this arrangement.

i fear that her status and celebrity greatly added to the excitement of their comebacks, so perhaps the enthusiasm around another comeback would be a little dulled without her star power.

They're dead in the water. Music has moved on.

The "mania" common with a lot of such groups, has gone, so they'd be relying on talent, which was very much absent in the first place.

Which to many really was a comeback and even then they were too dated to make new music

I don't think this would work. They were a product of their time. Yes they changed pop culture a lot but they should leave it at that. They were dated in 2007.

They only changed the culture for those who bought their records.

They are all variations on Posh now so it shouldn't matter.

On the other hand given their main selling point is their individual personas it could be a problem.

they would never reach the phenomenon heights...but they could comeback as a 4 piece with a new momentum and drive - something more artistic. An anti-tour would be a great move.

I don't think they should come back. But I liked the Melanie C and Emma "I know him so well" duet when they sang it live

They should re-group and add New Posh - a bloke in drag.

Melanie C is the one saying it could happen though if she felt it wasn't she'd have kept her mouth shut.

If the four of them all want this to happen it will happen.

I could see them playing Vegas with no new material

Greatest hits /nostalgia thing it would work well there for sure

I think the time has passed for them, to be honest. When I saw them at the 2012 closing ceremony, it seemed like a good way to finish their last chapter as The Spice Girls. Personally, I would like to see more individual materials from Mel C, Emma and even Mel B. Geri should just stop entirely and I could care less about Victoria (the only good song from her was Let Your Head Go).

if they can reinvent themselves then it would work out for them, but that's easier said than done!
