First of all I must explain how we had MAJOR nose bleed seats, seriously we were hiiiiiigh up! It was so steep I though I would roll all the way down to the bottom if I leaned forward. We still had a better view than the video shows though.
We spent the whole day going round London, hitting covent garden, leicester square and camden before heading to the 02 arena, i.e. previously the millennium dome. I made a gazillion videos an took a ton of snaps but ended up deleting them all to make room for videos! There was nothing too important there though.
So we went into the big 02 hallway and had margaritas, which are really gross, before heading up to our seats, where we passed a bar with a frozen margarita machine so we were pretty shozzled, especially Tom!
As we walked into the arena I got the total shock of how high up we actually were. It was so steep! The stage had a big catwalk with a mini stage on the end and we were so high that we couldn't see the screens on the side so well. But we were there! There were loads of little girls infront who kept turning and staring at us in that way little girls do, not like they were even born before 1996!
I thought it could have been better with a support act as after hardly any time they were announcing the show was about to start. Suddenly the lights went down and the crowds roared and films of mini spice girls started playing in slow motion on the screens. We could see right down on the stage so as five holes appeared in the stage floor we screamed harder and they shot through the floor straight into Spice up your Life!!
They went through almost all their hits, changing costumes super fast and constantly hugging and waving at the crowds all over the stage. And little did I know that David Beckham was in the front row!!! The strange thing was that every time Victoria got a line to sing or even just appeared on the big screen there were huuuuuge cheers, she's definitely a favourite now and looked amazing, even I was like omgomgomg it's actually Victoria Beckham!!! They each did their solo hits, the best being Geri's It's Raining Men, but Posh strutted a catwalk and spun around in a big floating dress.
They sang Goodbye and said a 'real' goodbye before coming back for the encore with the crowd chanting 'we want spice!' My favourite moments were Mama where not only were there their baby pictures and photos of their moms on the big screen, they had photos of them and their own kids! Emma's new baby is soooooo cute!
The only bad things were that two drunk 40 year olds behind kept falling on us and knocked their bottle of wine all over our seats and coats, so at the end I told them that they owed us an apology and they got really annoyed and everyone got really annoyed and we had to flea pretty quickly! Also I thought there would be cheap merchandise outside but there wasn't any! So I didn't end up getting a tshirt or anything! If anyone reading is going PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE buy me a tshirt and I will pay you back!!!!
Definitely a show to remember, the arena had the best atmosphere and everyone was dancing and singing, the Spice Girls totally still have it!!
