Spice Girls to kick off reunion tour in Dublin

Spice Girls to kick off reunion tour in Dublin

"Best night ever #SpiceWorldTour2019 #GirlPower #wannadoitagain".

"Another tweeted: "@spicegirls now sitting in croke park, was absolutely buzzing to see you lot but its very disappointing cos the sound is really bad!

"Hey guys thank you for attending our show tonight in Dublin". Unbelievable from start to finish. #SpiceWorld2019 have lost my voice because I screamed like a 15year old girl.

According to Britain's Press Association (PA) news agency members Baby, Scary, Ginger and Sporty opened the show with the message: "We welcome all ages, all races, all gender identifies, all countries of origin, all sexual orientations, all religions and beliefs, all abilities".

The British pop group, which shot to global fame telling you what they "really really want" in their bouncy debut single "Wannabe" in 1996, announced their reunion tour a year ago.

Halliwell Horner greeted the crowd by saying: "Welcome to Spice World". Like a king or a queen, we celebrate you.

Another chimed: "Be great if someone could tell the sound people at Spice Girls that the audience can't hear them".

But conditions imposed on Lindh's release make clear that authorities remain concerned about the threat he could pose once free. When he was sentenced, Lindh said he never would have joined the Taliban if he fully understood what they were about.

The British star uploaded a snap wearing an eye patch and said she was in "a lot of pain", before praising the NHS staff for the help she received with her sight.

Mel's selfie video comes after fans who attended the first date of the Spice Girls reunion tour in Cardiff on Friday voiced their disappointment, as sound problems inside the stadium meant they were unable to hear the show, and one fan even claimed they saw "huge numbers" walking out of the show.

Meanwhile, the Spice Girl will get candid during an interview tonight where she will reveal all whilst speaking on the ITV programme Piers Morgan's Life Stories. The band got back together for a tour in 2007-2008 and also performed at the closing ceremony for the 2012 London Olympics.

The group is undertaking the 13-date tour without original Spice Girls member Victoria Beckham, who has decided not to join them.

But on the opening night, there did not appear to be any tension between them.

The show itself was spectacular, kicking off with Spice Up Your Life and a fireworks display, and included messages of diversity throughout a set list spanning their biggest 90s and 2000s hits.

While another said it was a "surreal night". What did you think of the sound issues?
