Don’t get your hopes up too much though: It’s only the slightest smidgen of a “maybe,” according to BSB’s Brian Littrell. But “maybe” is good enough.
“We are actually in early talks about maybe doing a world tour together with the Spice Girls,” BSB’s Brian Littrell old U.K. newspaper The Sun.
While it wouldn’t be too hard to get the Backstreet Boys together for a worldwide double date — they’ve already got their A World Like This Tour kicking off in May and their Backstreet Boys Cruise setting sail in October — but getting the girls back together may be a little trickier.
One member that we’re sure would be down is Mel B. When MTV News caught up with Scary Spice, she told us she’s itching for a reunion in 2014 to celebrate their 20th anniversary.
“It will be our 20th year anniversary next year so I’m hoping we do get together and do something,” Mel B told MTV News. “It kind of would be a shame if we didn’t.”
And while Mel may be able to get Sporty, Baby and Ginger on board, Victoria Beckham may be a harder get: last year, she said her days with the Spice Girls were unequivocally behind her.
“I realized it was finished for good in 2008, when we reformed for our reunion tour,” Beckham told Vogue Paris. “It should have been the best moment of my life, but I just wanted to be elsewhere. It wasn’t a lack of respect for the girls or the audience, but the passion just wasn’t there.”
With Posh or without, this sounds like one excellent idea.
