Spice Girls team up with Backstreet Boys for possible 2016 tour

The Zig-a-zig-ah lovelies have been discussing reunion events for 2016 to celebrate their 20th anniversary.

And US fans will get a pop-tastic double header featuring the famous manband.

Backstreet lad AJ McLean, 37, right, confirmed plans are afoot: “The Spice Girls tour has been this idea bouncing around for the past year and a half, and it’s something we’re still talking about.”

The Spices are expected to tour the States minus Victoria Beckham, 41, who wants to concentrate on her fashion career.

A source told me: “America had a different relationship with The Spice Girls.

“They were big but their success didn’t last quite as long, so teaming with another act is a way of booking bigger venues.”

However, it is hoped all five girls will partake in a UK celebration before the US tour.

Sporty (Mel C), Baby, and Scary have all admitted discussions are under way for a reunion.

And they plan to use their comeback to relaunch their solo careers.

Mel, 41, told me: “I’ve been working on the record on/off for a couple years but it’s really building momentum now so I’m very excited about it.

“I don’t want to give away too much.”

Sounds like 2016 will Spice up everyone’s lives.
