The Spice Girls Will NOT Release A Reunion Tour DVD


As if canceling the remaining dates of the tour was not enough, now the Spice Girls have announced that there will NOT be a DVD release of their reunion tour.

On their blog they said:

The Spice Girls would like to thank each and every one of you that has taken the time to write and tell them just how much you enjoyed the Return Of The Spice Girls Tour. The girls worked really hard on the show, and hearing how much you loved it has made all of the work worthwhile! Sadly there will not be a DVD release of the 47-date tour but the girls hope you were all left with some fantastic personal memories of the show. Emma, Geri, Mel B, Melanie C and Victoria said "We had an absolutely amazing time on the Return of The Spice Girls Tour and we would like to say a final thank you for all of your support. Girl Power lives on".

Who made this decision? Are they mad? This would have been a worldwide sell-out.

The DVD may have made things up for those disappointed fans, now they don't even have that to look forward to.

HUGE shame.

NOT surprised.

This was never about the fans and all about them boosting their popularity in the states.

Isla said...

tiffany said...

What a horrible dis to their fans worldwide...I was lucky enough to attend one of the shows, but I just don't see why they would NOT release a DVD....

Janie said...

This really is mental! so many fans were dissapointed by the cancelled dates now they can't even enjoy the show in hindsight. Rubbish! Rubbish Rubbish! What's the matter with their bloody management they used to want to clean up at one point and now they can just choose to dump us.

Boosting their popularity in the states? Do you mean individually cos they are PRETTY well known worldwide. and they haven't really been doing anything to capitalize on this "popularity"...

I really can't understand why they aren't releasing a DVD. S'not rational at all. I know there's gonna be angry people going on about how it was all about the money and NOT the fans but releasing a DVD would earn them a shitload of money.

NO WAY!!! this sucks initially i tot they would come over to Asia for the tour and was so lookin forward to it but after they said they weren't then i was looking forward to owning the DVD version of the concert but now NO dvd!? so disappointing!!! Y NOT?! are they afraid of e media's comments? i hope they change their mind... someone start an online petition!!!

I have been wondering ever since they canceled the rest of their tour wether or not they would have a DVD. Im very dissapointed. The sales would have been HUGE and yes the fans who didnt get to see them would have had the chance to watch the show at home. Im sorry, but the Spice Girls are not what they use to be. "Girl Power" where did that go?

Melissa said...

I am a HUGE spice girls fan and always will be but whoever thought this was for the fans was completely nuts. I never thought it was for the fans. It's about popularity, money, etc. I would do it for the money too! I do wonder why they wouldnt sell dvds though, they'd get a lot more money... but I think they just got big heads and think they got all this money from the concerts that they don't need a dvd... whatever. I love them anyways, I just wish they released a dvd.

Amber said...

Oh how can they do this to us? I was so waiting for the DVD!!!

jessica said...

well it is no concidence that that the tour was announced when the Beckhams moved to LA. the tour only increased interest in victoria

Allie said...

Awww I was looking forward to one! Since they never made it up to Minneapolis- I missed out on the concert. I think they kind of owe it to us.

Fashion Critic said...

they do owe there fans who missed out and I am very surprised that they can not see nor appreciate that fact.

I hope some way down the line this decision is revoked.

yonna said...

I think everyone schould understand the facts: they have children and they come firts not the concerts, and if the shows are not taped maybe they didn't plan on it in advance! Just my opinion.

peach said...

This is wrong on so many levels. How do you disappoint all those fans in countries you had promised to tour and then didn't - then add insult to injury and not even release the dvd. This will leave a bad taste in a lot of fans' mouths.

sunshine said...

what? no DVD? oh common! what the heck! Thats a stupid decision. it would make a big gross worldwide! change it pls..pls..DVD.DVD. Too bad. Im waiting for it though.

Allie said...

AGREED (fashion critic)- Didn't they cancel a few shows in South Africa and South America and never made them up? We do deserve something. I feel like we shell out a lot for them. Hundred for tickets and hours of waiting for appearances. I feel so jipped

Ying said...

oh my gosh are they serious!!!!
i couldn't get any of the tickets in LA or vegas so all im hoping is the dvd to come out.............speechless

Chris said...

How could they do this to their fans?!!! This was one of the greatest shows of 07/08, and now they're doing this?! How dare they?! Thousands of fans were dissapointed they didn't get to see them, and a DVD could have been GREAT for all those who didn't get a chance. Now they come with this BS! Greedy, greedy selfish women! I am so angry. As so many are. It looks like they have forgotten that it was THE FANS who made them famous, but WE the fans can bring them DOWN too! I'm so angry at them!

I saw them at the O2 arena in london but I was so high up and so far back I was actually hoping for a DVD release. I'm a huge Spice Girls fan and I'm so disappointed they are not releasing a DVD. They should be ashamed. I feel like protesting until they finally give in and release a DVD. Anyone with me?

ssupers said...

I'm Thai and also a huge fan of SG. I have more than 1,000 CDs from them. U know! I really wanna see their final show but dont have opportunity to see it fantastic and finnaly goodbye and thank you.

SO, please release DVD for ASIAN FAN.

I know u guys have own duty. But this is the one last things that u can do it for your worldwind fan.

But I always LOVE u Spice girls.
