It certainly seems a good time for musical (I use the term loosely) comebacks. No sooner have the recently reformed Take That departed the MEN after a string of triumphant live dates, but the Spice Girls juggernaut prepares to roll into town. They will play the MEN arena on January 23rd and 24th.
The disappointing performance of their comeback single Headlines may suggest that in a pop chart dominated by fresher girl bands like Sugababes and Girls Aloud there is now no need for Ginger, Scary, Sporty, Baby and Posh (posh my arse), but the demand to see them live has been phenomenal - tickets for the Manchester dates sold out in just 18 minutes.
Going to the gig? Let us know afterwards what you thought.
