The Spice Girls shook their fanbase earlier this year with the announcement of a reunion tour. Yet, when the girls group kicked-off the outing in Dublin over the weekend, fans started to leave the stadium as they were unable to hear the performance correctly.
Melanie Brown (Scary Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice), and Geri Halliwell Horner (Ginger Spice), performed at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland. While the show was highly anticipated, some fans left unsatisfied after they weren’t able to hear the popstars sing well, or even at all.
There’s something wrong when the crowd at @spicegirls concert are all sitting down because no one has a clue what song is on because the sound really is THAT bad. @mcd_productions @CrokePark @IrishTimes @LovinDublin #SpiceWorldTour #SpiceGirl pic.twitter.com/QkENc7BJ8Y

Brown took to Instagram to address the situation.
“Hey guys, thank you for attending our show tonight in Dublin,” she said in an Instagram story. “We will see you in Cardiff and hopefully the vocals and the sound will be much, much better.”
When The Spice Girls announced their reunion late last year, they sold out nine stadiums, breaking Ticketmaster UK’s sales record. They will stop next in Manchester for three shows, followed by gigs in Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh, Bristol, and London. At this time, U.S. dates have not been announced.
Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), opted out of the reunion shows, but still wished her former groupmates good luck on the trek.
