Today was the day when 5 became 4 and the Spice Girls announced their world tour… minus Victoria Beckham.
The Spice Girls announced in a surprise announcement video that they will be returning in 2019 for a world tour that will start at Manchester Arena on June 1st and includes London’s Wembley Stadium.

Though Mel B got fans hopes up about it being the full group: “It’s just the four of us that are fully confirmed, but Vic might join us at some point,” the star said on ITV’s Loose Women. “It’d be a shame if she didn’t.” Well, it doesn’t look like Vicky B is taking that bait, and she took her Instagram page to wish the girls the best of luck:

Today marks a special day for the girls as they announce the first tour dates since we performed together in 2012! I won't be joining my girls on stage again but being in the Spice Girls was a hugely important part of my life and I wish them so much love and fun as they go back on tour next year. I know they will put on an amazing show and the fantastic fans past and present are going to have a wonderful time! X vb #spicegirls #friendshipneverends
And although Posh Spice won’t be with them, the girls will be supported by… wait, Jess Glynne? Umm, sorry love, they already got a ginger spice.
OH, AND ALSO: The Spice Girls now have an Instagram of their very own…
There are whispers that if the tour does as well as is hoped, it will extend to a number of other countries.
