Sorry, World: Backstreet Boys And Spice Girls Are Not Touring Together

Despite rumors of a legendary hookup, BSB and Spice Girls are not hitting the road together

Remember when we all collectively freaked out when we heard that the Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls might just be joining forces for a world tour? Yeah, well, scratch that.

A rep for the Backstreet Boys confirmed to MTV News that rumors that the hookup to end all hookups were definitely not true.

The rumor caught fire after BSB's Brian Littrell reportedly told U.K.'s The Sun that "We are actually in early talks about maybe doing a world tour together with the Spice Girls."

But they'll be a little busy this year -- not only are they hitting the road with Avril Lavigne on a North American trek this summer, they've also got their Backstreet Boys Cruise in October.

Their In A World Like This Tour with Avril kicks off on May 3.
