Ginger And Sporty Spice Share Charity Bill

Ex-Spice Girl Geri "Ginger" Halliwell and current group member Melanie "Sporty" Chisholm will be sharing a concert bill on January 28 when they perform for a charity event in Manchester, England, according to Reuters.

Mel C., who released her debut disc "Northern Star" last November, will be opening the concert, while Geri, whose solo career has found more success on her home turf than it has in the States, will be closing out the show.

The two singers have not performed together since 1998, when Geri left the Spice-y group (see "Geri Halliwell Quits Spice Girls"); it remains to be seen whether or not the pair will share the stage at the concert, though they are not expected to do so.

The event is billed as "Music For Life," a concert to benefit cancer research at Manchester's Christie Hospital. Billie, Lulu, and The Honeyz are among the other artists expected to appear at the show, which will take place at

the city's MEN Arena.
