It’s official! Using their song lyrics and blog, the Spice Girls bid a final farewell Wednesday to cap the conclusion of their successful reunion tour.
“Our time is up … we’ve come to the end of the road … there are tears of both sadness and joy. Look how far we’ve come!,” the group wrote on their Web site. “Yes, our reunion tour is proof that dreams do come true.”
The letter to fans on the Spice blog was signed with love from Emma [Bunton], Geri [Halliwell], Mel B [Brown], Melanie C [Chisolm] and Victoria [Beckham] after concluding a song best summed up their feelings:
“Goodbye my friend, it’s not the end … So glad we made it, time will never ever change it … ”
The Spice Girls, who last year reunited for the first time since 1998 and completed shows in Europe and the U.S., closed their tour with a show in Toronto Tuesday night. They were originally scheduled to go to Australia and South America, but family obligations and an already overextended timeline wouldn’t allow for it.
As for whether the Spice Girls are done for good or just taking another break, the ladies write, “We look to the future with hope and imagination and let Girl Power live on through all of you as it will continue in us and the future generations to come.”
