CD available at lingerie stores on Nov. 13
Wanna be the first to score a copy of the Spice Girls greatest-hits album? You’ll have to go through Victoria’s Secret to get it.The newly reunited British girl group’s CD will be available starting Nov. 13 at Victoria’s Secret stores and on the company’s Web site in the U.S., Capitol Music Group said Tuesday. The “Spice Girls: Greatest Hits” features 13 hits, including “Wannabe” and “Spice up Your Life,” and two new songs, “Voodoo” and the upcoming single, “Headlines (Friendship Never Ends).” Capitol said the disc will be available nationwide Jan. 15. The original Girl Power group of the 1990s will also appear at the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show, set to air Dec. 4 on CBS. The Spice Girls were one of the biggest acts of the ’90s with more than 55 million records sold. The quintet, who broke up in 2001, announced they had reunited at a press conference in London in late June. Their reunion tour opens Dec. 2 in Vancouver, Canada. Other confirmed dates: San Jose, Calif., Dec. 4; Los Angeles, Dec. 5 and Dec. 7; and Las Vegas, Dec. 8-9. Other North American tour dates are being rearranged, Capitol Music said, due to the high demand for tickets. The shows will be the first with all five of the original group since Geri “Ginger Spice” Halliwell quit to pursue a solo career in 1998. Their last album, “Forever,” released in 2000 and without Halliwell, fared poorly. Other members of the Spice Girls are Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham, Melanie “Sporty Spice” Chisholm, Emma “Baby Spice” Bunton and Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown.
