Music news

1994 marked the year in which the history of Emma Bunton, Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chisholm and Melanie Brown or (Mel C and Mel B, if you prefer or Baby Spice, Posh Spice, Ginger Spice, Sporty Spice and Scary Spice). While we wait for the dream of millions of fans who want to see them on stage again to come true, the tribute acts to Spice Girls have officially started.

The British postal service has been the first to start the year paying tribute to the girl band that changed the history of pop. The group with the greatest successes, the greatest impact, the greatest sales figures… swept away in just a decade before ending its history and starting from then on. an almost constant tug of war around their returns.

To mitigate that wait and satisfy the collecting side of his followers, Royal Mail has presented a collection of stamps with which review the history of Spice Girls. From the first iconic images of the group performing at the Brits in their unmistakable Union Jack flag dress to their performance at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

In addition to this historical review, the girl band is also presented with several stamps taken from one of their most famous photo sessions: those from the movie Spice World.

“A superb collectible packed with images and stories celebrating three decades of Girl Power. This extraordinary foldout souvenir contains the complete collection of 15 Spice Girls stamps. The 10 stamps in the main set capture the girl group in a variety of live performances icons that span his 30-year career” can be read on the official website.

“The Miniature Sheet, on a separate holder, includes stunning individual photographs of the girls taken by photographer Christophe Gstalder. The factsheet charts the Spice Girls’ journey from an audition studio in south London to the world stage, exploring the catchy hits and celebrated spirit of ‘Girl Power’ that changed the face of pop,” concludes Royal Mail.

A possible reunion of the Spice Girls with its five members is something we have not seen since they came together a decade ago to sing together at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics 2012. Later the girl band met again but as a quartet to give shape to a reunion tour that was enjoyed by tens of thousands of people half a decade ago.

In recent years, their personal relationship has improved incredibly. The fact of recognizing their best but also their worst experiences as a girl band has united them in a common front. Something that separated them until a few years ago when Victoria Beckham, the posh spice, decided to voluntarily move away from the shadow of one of the most important British groups in the musical history of the United Kingdom.
