The Spice Girls seemed to leave the door open for another reunion when their tour ended in February, but Melanie Brown says that door has shut for good.

Asked whether the group would ever come together to tour again, Brown offered a quick and emphatic “No” to reporters Thursday night at the 8th Annual BMI Urban Awards in Beverly Hills, adding, “[last year’s tour] was our final goodbye.”

But Scary Spice still misses her bandmates – Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) – despite comments she made recently, which indicated she and the girls are “not in touch much.”

“I think we always really enjoyed the whole journey,” Brown said. “It was really nice to tour again. Really nice. We’re all still friends.” 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 in February.

Brown has appeared on Dancing with the Stars and is working on her own fashion line, Catty Couture, as well as a new album which, she told PEOPLE, “is going pretty well.”
