Victoria Beckham addresses Spice Girls Glastonbury Festival rumours

“I love the girls. I really, really enjoy singing Spice Girls when I’m doing karaoke, but I think I’d better leave it there”

Victoria Beckham has ruled out reuniting with the Spice Girls to perform at Glastonbury 2023 – following ongoing speculation by fans of a possible appearance at the Worthy Farm event.

Rumours that the popular 90s pop band – whose current members consist of Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell – had been circulating the web for quite some time after both Mel C and most recently Emma Bunton kept the rumours alive.

Now, in a recent interview with the US television show Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Posh Spice was finally asked directly about the rumours and the possibility of a one-off Glastonbury reunion.

In her reply, Beckham said: “I had so much fun being in the Spice Girls – but now, with everything else that I have got going on with my fashion and my beauty line, four children, I couldn’t commit to that.

“I love the girls. I really, really enjoy singing Spice Girls when I’m doing karaoke, but I think I’d better leave it there.”

You can watch the full interview segment with Victoria Beckham below:

Back in June at Glastonbury 2022, Mel C played a genre-spanning DJ set at the Festival’s William’s Green Stage, while also joining Blossoms on the Other Stage, to cover the Spice Girls‘ ‘Spice Up Your Life’.

The Spice Girls formed in 1994 and first split in 2000, just to then reunite for two concert tours in 2007 and 2019.

However, Victoria Beckham did not participate in those tours, and last performed with the band in 2012 at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics.

More Glasto news

As with every Glastonbury-year, the speculation about who might play the legendary festival is always very high, and with the 2023 event fast approaching, the Glasto Rumour Mill is already spinning in full force.

Although the first line-up poster doesn’t usually get revealed until the beginning of March, followed by the full line-up announcement sometime at the end of May – there are many artists who ‘self-confirm’ prior to the official announcements by divulging the news via interviews, social media or website listings to accompany the ever-growing rumours.

Meanwhile, whispers of a possible Glastonbury performance by Roxy Music started circling the web in early September, after a couple of posts were published on the eFestivals website, pertaining to some apparent inside information “from a very reliable source” – saying the band are set to play the Legends Slot at Glastonbury 2023.

While Arctic Monkeys are rumoured to have signed on “the dotted line” for a deal to headline the Festival next summer after their UK tour sold out in minutes when going up for sale in October.

Guns N’ Roses are also one of the bands currently rumoured for playing Glastonbury 2023 after Festival organiser Emily Eavis said in an interview last year that the hard rockers need to play the Worthy Farm event at some point.

Another act who has never played at Worthy Farm before is Sir Elton John, who has long been rumoured for a performance at Glastonbury, and some changes to his current ‘Yellow Brick Road’ tour schedule just happen to reflect a perfectly-sized Glasto-shaped-gap.

And finally, Eminem – which is yet another name to have never stepped foot at Worthy Farm – is said to be in “advanced talks” to headline the iconic Pyramid Stage at the Festival next year.

It’s worth noting that Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis did however say earlier this year that all three headliners for the 2023 Festival have already been booked.

Therefore, despite the insider claiming Eminem’s tour dates align with a potential Glastonbury appearance, the rapper has yet to currently announce any upcoming gigs, suggesting the source either has access to unreleased information or is outright mistaken.

Don’t be fooled

Glastonbury Festival would very much like fans to be aware that there are people out there who will try and sell fake Glastonbury tickets to unsuspecting, willing and innocent potential purchasers.

Although Glasto-veterans who have been going to the Festival for quite some time may recognise these scams for what they are, newcomers might not.

Therefore, please remember that tickets are only sold on one site, which is:

any other site claiming to sell tickets for the Festival is not authentic.
