Spice Girls fans demand refunds after poor sound complaints at comeback tour

Mel C claims Victoria Beckham turned down Spice Girls tour because of stage fright

When the Spice Girls announced a reunion tour in November, fans noticed the absence of Victoria Beckham, A.K.A Posh Spice. Now former bandmate Mel C is opening up about the true reason behind Beckham’s absence, stage fright. While the star noted that Beckham is afraid to take the stage, she stopped short of saying that’s the sole reason she opted out of the tour.

Spice Girls fans have demanded refunds after complaining about bad sound for the second time during their comeback tour.

The group took to the stage at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on Monday evening but audience members struggled to hear the music properly once again – after Mel B insisted they would sort it.

Their first show back after seven years – at Dublin’s Croke Park – was marred by similar complaints, with some fans even walking out.

Taking to Twitter to discuss last night’s sound issues, one person wrote: “Okay so @spicegirls 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.”

While another moaned: “@spicegirls how disappointing to spend money on a ticket to see you @principalitysta and the support act stole the show! Sound was pants! #shuttheroof #sackthesoundguys! #refundwanted.”

"@spicegirls not much better in Cardiff… The sound was awful again.. What a way to spend money! #refundplease,” tweeted another.

A third added: “@spicegirls it was a shame that you still had not fixed the sound at your Cardiff gig tonight. Couldn’t hear half of it!”

However, not all fans agreed and many tweeted to say they had not experienced any issues with the sound.

One called it a "fantastic show" while another said the evening was "phenomenal".

Excited fans have splashed out between $83 and $185 to see the girl band’s comeback tour, which will see them perform around the country.

Mel B addressed the issue after the show in Dublin and told fans she hopes the vocals and sound quality will improve at the next show.

She said: "Hey guys, thank you for attending our show tonight in Dublin. We will see you in Cardiff and hopefully the sound and vocals will be much much better."

The Spice Girls' Spice World tour will continue at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester (May 29 to June 1), followed by stops in Coventry's Ricoh Arena (June 3-4), Sunderland's Stadium Of Light (June 6), Edinburgh's BT Murrayfield Stadium (June 8), Bristol's Ashton Gate Stadium (June 10) and London's Wembley Stadium (June 13-15).
