We blogged previously about the coming Spice Girls musical, Viva Forever! It launched recently, at the St Pancras Renaissance London Hotel. To commemorate, here are 7 truly awesome classic Spice Girls figures!
9 – number ones in the UK, tied with ABBA.
13 million – copies of their first album, ‘Spice’, sold.
£35,000 - price fetched by Geri’s Union Jack dress, bought by Hard Rock Cafe. This makes it the most valuable piece of Pop Costume ever!
£29.6 million – annual earnings of the group for 1998, highest for an all female group at the time.
11 - the position reached by ‘Wannabe’ in the US charts, the highest for a British debut.
38 seconds – time taken for tickets for the Spice Girls shows sold out. Astonishing!
7 million – copies of ‘Wannabe’ sold, making it the most successful single ever released by an all female group.
6 – the number of singles in The Spice Girls’ uninterrupted run of number ones, before it was finally broken with ‘Stop’ in 1998.
55,000 – copies of the movie ‘Spiceworld’ sold in the shops in its first day of release – alone!
£32 million – the profits returned from the Spice Girls 2008 Reunion Tour.
