Mel C said stage fright is to blame for Posh Spice not on the new tour.
It turns out that a nasty case of stage fright is the fault of Victoria Beckham A. K. A. Posh Spice – the absence of the Spice Girls’ upcoming reunion tour, according to her former band member.
In November, the pop group of fans dreams come true when they announced that they are going on tour again. Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Geri Horner (Ginger Spice) and Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice) announced the news in a tweet at the time, but many were quick to notice Beckham’s absence.
Speaking during an appearance on Jay Rayner’s “Out to Lunch” podcast, Chisholm got candid about Beckham’s decision to stay out of the upcoming tour.

“I’m sure Victoria wouldn’t mind me saying, the Olympics was difficult for her,” The 45-year-old singer said the group’s last appearance in 2012 in the closing ceremony. “You know, she has moved, her life has changed, and they simply do not have the love of performing, and in fact, it completely petrifies her.”
While the star noted that Beckham is scared to be on stage, she kept it short saying that is the only reason that they opted out of the tour.
“I’m sure there are many reasons, you know. She is very busy and successful in what they do. She has her heart and soul into her business, and, you know, to step away from that, and … not give it the time that they are doing at the time that it would be difficult,” she said. “But I’m also sure, if they felt passionate about on the stage, and loved, then she would be there.”

Beckham himself has not yet said much about the reason why they decided not to stop at her fellow Spice Girls on tour. However, shortly after they announced the reunion tour in November, she took to Instagram to give a short comment on the case.
“I will not be with my girls again on the stage, but in the Spice Girls was a very important part of my life and I want them so much love and fun as they go on tour again next year,” she wrote. “I know she will be a great show and the great fans past and present a wonderful time!”
