The Spice Girls reunion tour has gotten off to a rocky start, to say the least.

The iconic 1990s girl-group performed at Croke Park last Friday, and Cardiff's Principality Stadium last night, and fans are slamming the sound problems and even demanding refunds.

The band's opening gig in Dublin was plagued with sound issues, with some fans in the crowd even walking out after they were unable to hear any of the songs or the commentary in between.

After Friday's gig, Spice Girl Mel B said she hoped the sound "will be much better" at their Cardiff concert, but seemingly the audio problems remained.

Many fans took to social media to vent their disappointment, describing the sound delays and feedback as atrocious.

"How disappointing to spend money on a ticket to see The Spice Girls and the support act stole the show!," wrote one Twitter user, Kate Carr.

Jess Glynne was brought in as the support act, and apparently the sound during her set had no issue.

"The Spice Girls was so much fun however the sound was atrocious and you could not hear what they actually said! So disappointing when you pay soo much for a once in a life time opportunity," wrote another Twitter user.

Not being able to hear their favourite 90's pop icons after paying huge prices for tickets left many people upset, understandably.

The four band-members (Geri Halliwell, Mel C, Mel B and Emma Bunton) powered on with their set list of greatest hits despite the issues.

With fans paying almost €100 for tickets, it's easy to see why they became frustrated, to say the least.

Others were unhappy when Cardiff's stadium roof was bizarrely left open, allowing the rain to come in.

The girl group will continue to perform 12 more concerts in the UK, but we hope they sort these technical difficulties out. At least some fans had a brilliant time, with some describing the experience as 'phenomenal'.

The Spice Girls are heading to Manchester, Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh and Bristol and will finish their tour at London's Wembley Stadium.

It seems that with every passing day, a brighter light is being shone on the degrading situations women in the entertainment industry are faced with while simply doing their jobs.

From the women, who have come forward against Harvey Weinstein, to Blake Lively's admission that a make-up artist filmed her without her permission while she slept, countless stories are emerging which speak volumes of the power imbalance in the entertainment industry.

Yesterday, footage from 2005 was unearthed which saw Emma Bunton fend off degrading questions posed by Howard Stern and his co-host, Robin Quivers.

While appearing on Howard's radio show, the former Spice Girl was questioned about her virginity, her puberty and the arrival of her first period.

While clearly attempting to keep the mood light, Emma sidestepped a lot of the questions before outwardly insisting she wasn't going to answer some of them.

"I don't care, I'm not telling you about that. Absolutely not. I am being honest but I don’t want to tell you that," she responded when Howard asked her when she got her period.

The footage has caused outrage on social media, with one person sharing the video and writing: "Should watch this Emma Bunton/Howard Stern clip. Entertainment industry allows men w/power (like Harvey Weinstein) to treat woman like meat."

Nicola Roberts of Girls Aloud fame also shared the video and expressed her disgust for the way in which a then 29-year-old Emma was treated while appearing as a guest on the show.

"This old tape is disgusting. Poor Emma. Don't let anyone ever subject you like this, you're well within your rights to tell him to GFH," Nicola wrote.

In a move which has everyone at SHEmazing! HQ weeping into their Christmas jumpers this afternoon, Robbie Williams and Emma Bunton performed one of our firm festive favourites last night.

In front of some very lucky Heart listeners, the singers, who became household names in the 90s, took to the stage, and absolutely nailed 2 Become 1.

20 years after the song took the charts by storm, Robbie and Emma dusted it off, and frankly we're in love.

Promoting the performance online, Heart tweeted: "We think this should totally be Christmas number 1! Love this version."

Ah lads, the feels!

After months of drama, speculation and controversial revelations, former Spice Girls Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Mel B decided to ditch the name which made them famous and reunite as GEM.

Since news of the partial Spice Girls reunion broke, fans have been waiting patiently for a glimpse of the band’s new music and now, at long last, their first track seems to have arrived.

Earlier this week, a single called Song For Her was leaked online with the claim that it is GEM’s debut track as a trio.

While the band has yet to confirm or deny that the music is in fact theirs, many believe Song For Her is sufficiently nostalgia inducing to pass for the work of one of the 90s most beloved bands.

When a current popstar decides to cover a chart classic, it can go one of two ways.

And thankfully for Lady Gaga, her brief duet with Spice Girl, Emma Bunton, this morning went down an absolute storm with Instagram users.

Capturing the moment on camera for fans and followers, Emma, who now has a breakfast slot on Heart FM,  looked thrilled to be giving it her all with the queen of meat dresses.

And despite the fact Gaga altered her line from 'Wanna make love to ya, baby” to “I’ll make love to you, baby', the duet has received nothing but love from thousands of fans this morning.

"Omg I love it. They need to do a song together," wrote one while another added: "This has just made my life. Got a tear in my eye."

It's two generations of popstars, and it is EVERYTHING.

Victoria Beckham officially won throwback Thursday when she posted an old Spice Girls photo album on her Instagram account last night. And the world obviously went totally crazy afterwards.

Then began the rumours: the girls were reuniting to mark the 20th anniversary of their global hit debut single, Wannabe

Unsurprisingly given her mega-profile and her successful career as a fashion designer, Victoria Beckham was said not be joining the girl gang on stage for their tour – but the others were seemingly very much on board.

Still, late this afternoon Emma Bunton delivered the devastating news that "nothing's happening at the moment". Nooooo!

The Sun had reported today that the reunion tour was definitely in the offing.

"If anything happens and it's concrete, and we decide on something, I will let you know," Baby Spice said on Heart FM this morning.

Mel C later tweeted: "Woke up this morning wondering whether I need to start practising my backflips???!!!" A jibe to which Ms Bunton then replied: "Do I need to put my pigtails in?!?!?"

Victoria Beckham has previously said the London Olympics back in 2012 was definitely her final appearance with the others in any sort of musical capacity.

Although in the past year, the band haven't been shy about meeting up in public and they're quite open about how they are all still really close friends and all stay in touch regularly. 

And we're quietly hopeful that the worldwide reaction today may have given the girls some serious food for thought. Indeed, The Sun reporter who broke the story, Dan Wooton, was eager to stress that no actual denial had been issued. 

He's sticking to his guns, in fact, suggesting via Twitter that an official announcement will still come later this year – a message which Emma then shared with her 1.2million followers. 

Sounds promising, we say!!

Former Spice Girls members Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Mel C, were spotted all hanging out together recently at the Isle of Wight festival and we are so happy about it! 

It's years since they had a hit but they are still massive icons of ours and seeing these pictures of them together bring us right back to the early days.. 

In case your wondering who Geri Horner is, Geri Halliwell got married and took husband Christian Horner's second name. 

Geri and Christian tied the knot at St Mary's Church in Bedfordshire in front of their family and friends on Friday 15 May. At one point the 42-year-old singer cuddled up to her new husband, proving that the honeymoon phase has not yet passed

Fans commented with replies including "pictures like this make me so happy", "Spice babes", and "great to see you all happy together.miss your music"

Blast from the past: Geri also bumped into the spice bus!

The three singers seemed over the moon to run into each other at the festival and spent the day joined by Ronan Keating and his fiance Storm too. 

But it turns out this might not be the only reunion for the girls, it is reported that chief of Isle of Wight festival John Giddings is trying to get the girls back together next year to celebrate the twenty year anniversary of the releases of Wannabe. (Fingers crossed!)

Geri Halliwell has teased all loyal fans of the Spice Girls by hinting that Emma Bunton could finally be getting married after being engaged for four years and in a relationship for 17. 

Geri shared a snap on her Instagram, after her own wedding, showing an adorable Baby Spice and her long-term partner Jade Jones in a sweet embrace and holding Geri's bouquet with the words "We're next!" above it.

39-year-old Emma previously admitted that they keep "forgetting" they have a wedding to plan.

They got engaged in January 2011, four months before Emma gave birth to their second son, Tate. The couple are also parents to seven-year-old Beau. 

We know there will be a wedding eventually, but after the excitement of Geri Halliwell's big day last week we can't wait for another wedding to spice up our life.

Posh and Becks better make it to this one…

As if her wedding day wasn’t already special enough, Geri Halliwell’s new husband Christian Horner pulled out all the stops to give his bride a truly amazing day.

As is tradition, the Formula One boss gave the former Spice Girls star a gorgeous, thoughtful gift on their romantic day; however, his choice of gift surpassed anything we could ever imagine receiving.

So, what do you get the Spice Girl who has everything? An Aston Martin car, of course. Not just any Aston Martin, either: a £350,000 DB5 retro model.

Christian got the idea to gift Geri with the car – which is the very same model that featured in the James Bond movie Goldfinger – after she reportedly mentioned that it was her favourite.

The man certainly did well. Lucky Geri!

The 42-year-old looked stunning as she arrived at St Mary’s Church for her nuptials yesterday, wearing a beautiful couture lace gown and gold Prada stilettos.

While former bandmate Emma Bunton was the only Spice Girl in attendance at the wedding, the band was well-represented; Geri’s daughter Bluebell, Mel B’s daughter Madison, and Emma’s sons Beau and Tate were among the wedding party that are said to have walked the bride down the aisle.

It was wedding bells for Geri Halliwell today, as the former Spice Girl married her sweetheart Christian Horner in a summer ceremony in Bedfordshire, England.

Geri looked every bit the perfect bride in a gorgeous couture lace gown with a full skirt and a nipped-in waist, accessorising the princess-style dress with gold Prada stilettos and vintage pearl earrings.

Beautiful!

Geri and Christian said "I do" at St. Mary's Church, surrounded by family and friends including Myleene Klass, Amanda Holden, Jennifer Saunders and Geri's fellow Spice Girls Emma Bunton and Mel B.

Victoria Beckham and Mel C were unable to attend due to other commitments, though Victoria did share this sweet throwback picture in honour of the big day:

Geri herself tweeted her excitement before the ceremony, simply posting a smiling emoji that said it all:

The singer shared some of this morning's wedding preparation with her followers, taking to Instagram to post pictures of her something old (her vintage earrings), new (her lace dress), borrowed (a diamond necklace) and blue (a sky-blue ribbon in honour of her daughter Bluebell). 

So sweet. 

The big day was not without its drama though, with the groom's parents choosing not to attend the ceremony, something many believe was a show of their disapproval for the marriage. Christian left his girlfriend Beverley Allen for Geri in March 2014, just six months after the former couple became parents to a daughter, Olivia.

We hope that Geri and Christian enjoyed their big day all the same…

Congrats to the newlyweds!
