(Newser) – Cape Town, Buenos Aires, Beijing, and Sydney will be spared the Spice Girls' reunion concert tour. The brief reunion of the all-girl group will really really end in Toronto February 26. The Spice Girls cited family commitments as the reason, but previous reports suggested lack of interest in some cities was a major factor.

Victoria Beckham is said to be unhappy on the road away from husband, soccer star David Beckham. The possibility of a future reunion was left open. "As the girls return to normal family life and the kids go back to school they are reviewing all the options. Who knows what the future might bring?" a spokesman said.
