Spice Girls Posters
Spice Girls posters include Baby Spice, Posh Spice, Sporty Spice, Scary Spice and Ginger Spice collectively know as the Spice Girls.
The Spice Girls released their debut album ‘Spice’ on the 19th September 1996 becoming the best-selling album by a female group in history, selling over 30 million copies.
Our posters for Mel B, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Melanie C and Geri Halliwell followed up with the album 'Spiceworld' selling over 20 million copies worldwide.
The Spice Girls posters were signed to Virgin Records and released their debut single "Wannabe" in 1996 which reached number one in 37 countries and commenced their global success.
In May 1998, Halliwell left the Spice Girls and the group continued as a four-piece. Their only album without Halliwell, Forever, was released in November 2000 and achieved comparatively disappointing sales of four million copies.
At the end of 2000, the Spice Girls posters began an indefinite hiatus to concentrate on their solo careers but insisted that they were not splitting. Since then, the group has reunited for two concert tours, the Return of the Spice Girls (2007–2008) and Spice World (2019), both of which won the Billboard Live Music Award for the highest-grossing engagements of their respective years.
The Girls have sold 90 million records worldwide, making them the best-selling girl group of all time, one of the best-selling artists, and the biggest British pop success since the Beatles.
The group received a number of awards, including 5 Brit Awards, 3 American Music Awards, 4 Billboard Music Awards, 3 MTV Europe Music Awards and 1 MTV Video Music Award.
In 2000, they became the youngest recipients of the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. According to Rolling Stone, "Ginger, Posh, Baby, Sporty and Scary were the most widely recognised group of individuals since John, Paul, George and Ringo of The Beatles.
The Spice Girls posters came about after Bob and Chris Herbert, the father-and-son duo of Heart Management, decided to create a girl group to compete with the boy bands who dominated the UK pop music scene at the time. Together with financier Chic Murphy, they envisioned an act comprising "five strikingly different girls" who would each appeal to a different type of audience.
In February 1994, Heart Management placed an advertisement in the 'The Stage' asking for singers to audition for an all-female pop band at London's Danceworks studios. Approximately 400 women attended the audition on 4 March 1994, during which they were placed in groups of 10 and danced a routine to "Stay" by Eternal, followed by solo auditions in which they were asked to perform songs of their own choosing.
After months of auditions, Victoria Adams, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell were selected as the five members of the Spice Girls.
All of our Spice Girls posters are 100% original promotional posters from the 1990's which have been carefully preserved and exclusive to us at The Original Poster Shop.
