(Newser) – If what you want, what you really really want, is a Spice Girls reunion, you've got it. The five-woman pop group resurfaced yesterday in Vancouver, dressed a little more conservatively than in the past. It was the quintet's first concert in a world tour expected to run through Canada, the US, Europe, and possibly South America and South Africa, Reuters reports.

Famous for a few catchy songs in the late '90s, the British group lasted only 4 years before breaking up in 2000. But the sold-out show of over 15,000 fans indicates that Posh, Baby, Ginger, Scary, and Sporty haven't been forgotten. As one fan said, "It was so good it made me want to cry."
