The Spice Girls have added three new dates to their reunion tour, taking the total number of concerts to 14.

In addition to the original dates, the group will perform in Vancouver, San Jose, California and Shanghai - kicking off the tour in Canada on 2 December.

At the height of their fame, the Spice Girls sold 55 million albums and had nine UK number one singles.

Three million people have registered to see the band since plans for the reunion tour were revealed last month.

In a statement on their website, the group said: "In true girl power tradition we are taking over the world... again!

The tour will cover six continents, but includes just one date in the UK, in London on 15 December.

'Spice City'

Fans can also vote for the tour to come to their hometown.

"If we haven't announced a date near you, you can still vote for your city to become Spice City," the group announced on their website.

"For one night only, exactly where we perform is down to you and your votes. We are literally in your hands."

The band split six years ago, recording one further album as a foursome after Geri Halliwell dramatically quit the band in 1998.

The reunion tour follows the recent success of reformed boy band Take That, despite the absence of original member Robbie Williams.

However, unlike Williams, Halliwell has rejoined fellow Spice Girl Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton and Melanie Chisholm for the tour.
