When I was 11, my parents did the unthinkable: they took me on vacation to Hawaii instead of letting me stay home in Ohio to go to the Spice Girls concert with my best friend. After 21 years of pain and suffering from missing seeing my idols live in concert , I finally got to make my dreams come true when I saw the group perform on their reunion tour this year in London. The concert was everything 11-year-old Hedy dreamed of and more, and that is not even an exaggeration.Today’s Spice Girls – Geri “Ginger Spice” Horner, Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton, Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown, and Melanie “Sporty Spice” Chisholm – set out on a mini stadium tour this year to bring Spice World to their fans, 25 years after becoming a band. Though the group admittedly feels like its missing a piece, thanks to Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham deciding not to participate, the four remaining members put on the show of a lifetime anyways. They performed their mega hits – which they made sure to remind the crowd that they had written themselves two decades ago – like “Spice Up Your Life,” “Viva Forever,” and “Mama” to tens of thousands of devoted fans who had waited years to see the girls on stage together again.
