Spice Girls Musical Sees Ticket Sales Surge
Closure announcement sends fans scurrying to books seats...
The West End show, which features the girl group's music and was written by Jennifer Saunders is to close its doors for the last time on 29 June - at which point it is predicted to have made a loss of £5m.
But UK ticketing website StubHub has reported that sales have shot up by 220 per cent since it was announced that the show is being axed.
"Despite the bad press, this news will come as a disappointment to many and we've seen a significant uplift in searches as fans rush to get tickets while they still can," said StubHub manager Brigitte Ricou-Bellan.
"With just eight weeks until the show ends StubHub is helping fans across the country find remaining tickets safely and securely."
And Baby Spice Emma Bunton has tweeted on the subject of the closure.
She wrote: "I am totally gutted that our wonderful show @vivaforever is coming to an end. Thank you to all our amazing fans for your constant support!"
