Spice Girls launch reunion tour
The British pop group Spice girls have done their first show of the reunion tour - they played Vancouver, Canada. They were famous for bringing the world 'girl power' and are doing more than 40 shows around the world - they plan to hit five continents. Heather Alexander was there.
It was a sell out show - almost 16,000 people packed into Vancouver's GM Place to see the five together on stage for the first time since they broke up.
Many had come dressed as Spice Girls saying they had waited their whole lives to see them.
The five women had a lot to prove in this show and the verdict from fans afterwards was that they had impressed.
Many leaving said they thought it was amazing and most had bought some of the Spice Girls merchandise that was on sale.
With their share of that, plus the percentage of the tickets sales and sponsorship deals, the girls are looking at ten million pounds or twenty million dollars each.
