Spice Girls to reunite - unfortunately

I note that 4 of the 5 Spice Girls are to do a reunion gig and have promised a 1 hour set during which they'll play their greatest hits.

What will they do for the other 55 minutes?

I once watched a video of them and a sound engineer filtered out all 5 vocals so you could hear them as individuals , "the absent one" sounded like a teenager whose voice had just broke.

Nevertheless, they have a huge following. They have already had to add two extra London dates to satisfy the demand for tickets.

Oh joy, my unfettered enthusiasm for the coming musical extravaganza is truly boundless, I can't wait.

Or maybe I can.

"they have a huge following".

Which merely proves the old adage - there's no accounting for taste (or lack of).

Sneering at someone else's taste in music isn't clever or funny.

Whatever they are up to Clapton is God they are not doing it for the likes of you and me but for the millions of youngsters who will pay good hard earned money to see their heroes. Just because they are a youth thing is no reason to knock them. We were all young once Clapton
