Spice Girls 'In Talks For World Tour With Backstreet Boys'

Boyband star lets slip that group are considering another comeback...

The Spice Girls are reportedly in talks for a joint world tour with the Backstreet Boys.

The Sun claims that Brian Littrell of the US boyband said discussions are underway for the global dates.

He told the paper: “We are actually in early talks about maybe doing a world tour together with the Spice Girls.”

It is thought that the band would return as a four piece after Victoria Beckham ruled herself out of reforming the group.

The Spice Girls last performed together at the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics. That appearance came five years after their original reunion tour The Return Of The Spice Girls.

The band were last pictured together at the premiere of Viva Forever, a stage musical based on their songs, in December 2012. The musical closed after just seven months following bad reviews and poor ticket sales.

Baby Spice Emma Bunton recently joked that she would consider a Vegas residency with the band - but only if they were paid more than Britney Spears.

Meanwhile, Sporty Spice Mel C hinted that the band would get together again in 2016 to mark the 20th anniversary of Wannabe.
