Spice Girls concert e-mail 'fake'
The Spice Girls
The Spice Girls announced their reunion earlier this year
The Spice Girls have denied cancelling a concert in Argentina, after a story appeared on several websites claiming they had.

A spokesman said an e-mail sent to fans claiming they had scrapped the Buenos Aires concert due to high demand for their other dates was "fake".

The Spice Girls are due to play in the South American city as part of their reunion world tour.

They hope to schedule the gig for a date in February, the spokesman added.

Dates in Cape Town, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Sydney are also still to be finalised, according to the band's website.

'Unofficial'

In a statement, the Spice Girls' spokesman said: "The Spice Girls would like to make it clear that they have not cancelled their Buenos Aires show.

"A story has appeared on several websites that includes a fake e-mail and competition from the girls. The fake e-mail claims that due to the demand so far in the UK and the US this show is going to be cancelled.

"The e-mail goes onto say that they will be running some competitions for their South American fans to travel to the UK to watch a show.

"This is not the case and this email is 100% unofficial and has nothing to do with the Spice Girls."

The Spice Girls will kick off their world tour on 2 December in Vancouver, moving on to San Jose, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago and Boston; then across the Atlantic to play Manchester and 17 nights at the O2, in London.

At the end of January their tour takes them back to North America for gigs in Boston, Toronto and New York.
