Only to say: you don't hear Spice Girls songs on the radio too often, do you? Far from the growing middle-aged surprisingly gracefully air of the Take That reunion - which, as we know, sold to James Blunt mums rather than McFly kids, so presumably this is targeted at the Abba far-too-old-to-be-partying single 34 year olds - this whole thing is surely going to be nothing more than five mid-30s women going "god! Do you remember those stack-heeled wedges?" for an hour and far too much money of your time. And obviously the girls will have been so surprised at the level of goodwill throughout their tour that they'll just happen to find a whole album ready and waiting for them the moment it finishes.
And Paddy Power are offering speciality bets on the whole thing, the last refuge of the overconfidently salaried. Interesting to see that joint favourites to be their UK support are two acts from The X Factor, the show Simon Fuller has recently taken Simon Cowell to court over its intellectual property rights.
