Nineteen-nineties pop sensation the Spice Girls are proving that girl power continues to reign.
The singing group is currently in the midst of a worldwide reunion tour, with an extended stop in their native England for several dates for which tickets are selling on the UK secondary market for big prices, according to Joe Cohen, founder of Seatwave.
“As the biggest girl band ever, you would expect the Spice Girls’ reunion tour to attract huge numbers, and it certainly is,” Cohen said in a statement. “Understanding how much fans are willing to pay to get hold of sought after concert tickets can really tell a story about the group, and the Spice Girls are obviously still as popular with the fans as ever.”
On Seatwave, the most expensive ticket for one of the O2 Arena shows sold for £797, or roughly $1,610. For an upcoming show at the Manchester Evening News Arena, the most expensive ticket sold for £195, or about $394.
The UK secondary market is generally smaller and tightly regulated than its U.S. counterpart, but Cohen said average tickets for the tour are selling for about £120, or $242 each.
