LA debut for reunited Spice Girls
The Spice Girls appeared on stage in military-style outfits.

The Spice Girls have performed live for the first time since their reunion, at the annual Victoria's Secret fashion show in Los Angeles.

The British five-piece sang two songs at the event, which was being recorded at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood ahead of its US broadcast on 4 December.

The girls performed their new single Headlines and their 1998 track Stop.

Geri Halliwell said the appearance had been "a good warm-up" for their world tour, beginning in Canada next month.

Speaking backstage, Halliwell told GMTV the new concerts would be "full of drama".

Military caps

Emma Bunton said the band was having "the best time", adding the group's forthcoming live shows would include "all our old classics".

A star-studded audience cheered as the five - Bunton, Halliwell, Victoria Beckham, Melanie Chisholm and Melanie Brown - appeared on stage dressed in World War II-era tunics and military caps.

Earlier they had seen Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am perform in place of hip-hop star Kanye West, who withdrew from the event following the death of his mother.

The Spice Girls are due to perform live from Los Angeles on BBC One's Children in Need night later.
