Glastonbury Festival: Mel C claims the Spice Girls ‘never asked’ to do Glasto despite Emma Bunton saying they were

Spice Girls icon Mel C has claimed the former girl group were “never invited” to play Glastonbury Festival.

The singer, 47, made the revelation on a recent podcast after teammate Emma Bunton previously insisted they had been invited to the event.

In 2019, during an appearance on Zoe Ball’s Radio 2 show, Emma shared that the girls were approached by Glasto ahead of their comeback tour.

She said, “We were asked, let’s see how this tour goes first.”

But Mel C doesn’t remember what happened, reports Mirror Online.

“I can tell you the absolute truth, we were never approached,” she admitted on The Search Engine Podcast.

Sporty Spice added: “I would love to play Glastonbury, in fact any girl would. But yeah, I haven’t had that call yet.”

The pop group – made up of Melanie, Emma, ​​Victoria Beckham, Mel B and Geri Horner – recently celebrated their Wannabe 25th anniversary.

And in the coming months, they are expected to release their first song in 14 years.

The iconic group has revealed that new track Feed Your Love will be available to stream on July 9, before fans can get a physical copy of the song on July 23.

Their new material comes to mark the legendary band’s Wannabe anniversary celebrations.

The original hit Wannabe is the seventh best-selling single of all time with over 1.3 million CD single and download sales.

Baby, Scary, Ginger, Posh and Sporty Spice captured the imagination of a global audience when they formed in 1994.

And now the girls, who have all remained in the celebrity spotlight ever since, hope to have a special year celebrating their accomplishments and spoiling the fans who have followed their incredible journey.

“The Spice Girls belong to everyone and that’s why we want to mark 25 years of Wannabe by celebrating our amazing fans,” they shared on Twitter at the time.

“There’s a Spice Girl in all of us, and their rise to fame has been a story experienced by millions of us around the world…it’s time for those stories to be told.”
