The Spice Girls will make their much-anticipated return to Ireland next year, 21 years since they last played a concert here.
The girl group will kick off their reunion stadium tour at Dublin's Croke Park on Friday, May 24 2019 with singer Jess Glynne supporting them.
This will mark the first time a girl group has headlined Croke Park.

The announcement comes after the group revealed their UK tour last week, without original member Victoria Beckham.
Tickets will go on sale on Thursday, November 22 at 9am from usual outlets nationwide.
The Spice Girls, who formed in 1994 and became one of the most successful acts of the Nineties, have not performed together since the London Olympics closing ceremony in 2012.
Beckham is reportedly focusing on her fashion business. The Spice Girls performed as a quartet for two years after Geri Horner quit the band in 1998.
They went on hiatus in 2000, after recording their third album, Forever, and are best known for their hits including Wannabe, 2 Become 1 and Spice Up Your Life.
Naturally, there's been huge excitement on Twitter about their return to Ireland.
