The Spice Girls are in talks to perform during the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics Games in London, according to British music mogul Simon Fuller — who turned the group into the most successful girl bands of all-time during their chart reign in the late ’90s.
“They stand for so much in British music history and I can’t think of a better time for them to get back together for another performance. The demand for them as a band is as strong as ever,” Fuller said.
“They will not want to be performing hits like Wannabe in their 40s, but it”s amazing how often people talk about another reunion. And I think if they do it, it”s going to be in 2012.”
The event will be seen by an estimated two billion people. The most successful British bands since ‘The Beatles, The Spice Girls has sold more than 65 million records worldwide. In 2007, the hitmakers briefly returned for a reunion tour.
