Today was the day when 5 became 4 and the Spice Girls announced their world tour… minus Victoria Beckham.

The Spice Girls announced in a surprise announcement video that they will be returning in 2019 for a world tour that will start at Manchester Arena on June 1st and includes London’s Wembley Stadium.

Though Mel B got fans hopes up about it being the full group: “It’s just the four of us that are fully confirmed, but Vic might join us at some point,” the star said on ITV’s Loose Women. “It’d be a shame if she didn’t.” Well, it doesn’t look like Vicky B is taking that bait, and she took her Instagram page to wish the girls the best of luck:

And although Posh Spice won’t be with them, the girls will be supported by… wait, Jess Glynne? Umm, sorry love, they already got a ginger spice.

OH, AND ALSO: The Spice Girls now have an Instagram of their very own

There are whispers that if the tour does as well as is hoped, it will extend to a number of other countries.
