(Newser) – In a blast from the British past, all five of the Spice Girls reunited today in London for the first time since 2001 to kick off an 11-date, 8-country world tour, which starts in December. "The time is right," said Sporty Spice. "We want to have some fun and wanted to keep this announcement mysterious."

As for old squabbles, Sporty reassured, “we were kids then and we’re woman now." The reunion tour launches in Posh Spice's new hometown, Los Angeles, but the Girls will need to attract a younger crowd of fans. "I like to think our songs are universal and they are timeless. Hopefully, the kids will like it too," said Ginger Spice. (Read more music stories.)
