The Spice Girls have issued a personal apology to fans across the globe for scrapping the last leg of their reunion tour.
The pop stars were due to play concerts in Cape Town, South Africa; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Beijing, China; and Sydney, Australia later this month - but due to the high demand for extra performances in London, their tour schedule changed and subsequent dates were never officially set.
And on Friday, the band - comprising of Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm and Victoria Beckham - announced the final leg of their concerts had been cancelled due to "family and personal commitments".
In a message to their devotees, they said: "It's been incredible being back together and seeing our fans again.
"Really sorry if we didn't get to see you this time around. We have other commitments in our lives now. But who knows what will happen next?"
The world tour will now end in Toronto, Canada on February 26.
The Spice Girls gave something rather special to their audience this week - no, Geri Halliwell didn't do the decent thing and cover herself up for once, but the Spice Girls all brought their children onstage.
During their performance of Mama at the O2 arena in London on Tuesday night, it's been reported that most of the Spice Girls brought their children onstage to say hello to the thousands of buyerless eBay touts who make up their audience these days. In the middle of the song Victoria Beckham, Mel B and Emma Bunton all brought their kids out on stage. In fact, the only Spice Girl mother not to introduce her child to the audience was Geri Halliwell, for fear that the effect of 20,000 people all derisively going "pffft" at the same time after hearing the name Bluebell Madonna would knock over a lighting rig or flip the stage upside down or something.
Victoria Beckham decked out her boys, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz in matching T-shirts emblazoned with the words 'POSH'. Baby Spice Emma Bunton cuddled four-month-old son Beau, while Mel B brought along daughters Phoenix Chi and Angel Iris. The children wore bright green ear muffs to protect them against the noise. Geri Halliwell's daughter Bluebell was the only Spice offspring missing.
For what it's worth, Mel C couldn't bring any children onstage because she hasn't had any yet.
Italian fashion designer Roberto Cavalli is the man the reunited Spice Girls have turned to outfit them for when they hit the road this winter for their The Return of the Spice Girls tour.
As the sketch shows, expect the Spices' getups to be sparkly and sexy, just like much of Cavalli's famous clothes, and fitting right in with the image the Spice Girls' going-for-glam image.
"I have known Victoria Beckham for a long time," explains Roberto. "And I have always admired her style and personality. When we talked about the worldwide tour, The Return of the Spice Girls, she put forward the idea of me creating all their costumes to which I immediately agreed."
"When I met them, I immediately understood the reason why the world went crazy for their unique brand of girl power as they are an irresistible mix of energy, pure joy, humor and a spicy dash of glamour. I'm sure their strength will take us by storm again," the designer added.
The girls will hit the road starting Dec. 2 and have 30 dates planeed out for the U.S. and Europe! For more info, check out www.thespicegirls.com.

The Spice Girls paved the way for their blockbuster comeback tour with a 1930s and 40s themed appearance at the Victoria's Secret fashion show
Performing in front of an enormous lighting rig spelling out Spice, the pioneers of girl power belted out their hit "Stop" and new single "Headlines."
Sporty, Ginger, Posh, Scarey and Baby switched between khaki and military caps and full-length 1930s-style ball gowns to promote their latest CD, Spice Girls: Greatest Hits which is being sold exclusively at Victoria's Secret lingerie chain.
The band has sold more than 55 million albums, with 10 No. 1 singles and won another admirer last night.
"I'm in love with Victoria Beckham, which is probably an issue for David," American Idol host Ryan Seacrest said.
"They could have stood there and done nothing and I'd have been happy," he raved.
Other celebrities appearances at the Kodak Theatre, home of the Academy Awards, included supermodel Heidi Klum and her husband, the singer Seal, who perfomed a duet culminating in a prolonged kiss at the base of the catwalk.
The Black Eyed Peas' William Adams, also known as will.i.am, started the show with the fitting rap hook: "Baby, where you get your body from?"
Adams was a last-minute stand-in for hip-hop star Kanye West whose mother died earlier in the week.

It has been rumored that Tesco is about to sign on a deal to sponsor the Spice Girls’ reunion tour starting in December. They paid each of the Spice Girls $2 million dollars to appear in their ads.

New single from the reunited Spice Girls, charity song for Children In Need
The first new video from the reunited Spice Girls, for "Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)," will make its online debut Friday – and here's a photo preview of what's to come.
The clip, which will air on the Today show's Web site at 4 p.m. EST, is the first single from the group and their first release since splitting up in 2001.
"We are celebrating the past!" said Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell in June when the band announced their reunion tour, set to launch Dec. 7 in Los Angeles.
The new song, a collaboration with their original songwriters, is a declaration of friendship that "feels like taking a little bit of the past. You feel that flavor but then it's moving on," Halliwell told Britain's GMTV last month. "The other girls chipped in later, adding lyrics. It's magical."
The upcoming tour, marking the Spice Girls' first performances in nine years, "will be a proper good farewell to our fans," said Melanie "Sporty" Chisholm.
Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham added, "We are going to celebrate the past, do a small tour and that will probably be it. Our priority is our families." All of the Girls except Chisholm have become mothers since their '90s heyday, when they sold 55 million records worldwide.
he Spice Girls are set to star in a raunchy campaign for lingerie chain Victoria's Secret.
The reunited girl group - Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Geri Halliwell - are in talks to pose in the brand's underwear ahead of their performance at the company's star-studded fashion event next month.
However, the band are said to be terrified about stripping down to their lingerie and have embarked on strict diet and exercise regimes to ensure they look their best.
A source said: "The girls are working out like crazy to ensure they look sexy. The shoot will feature each girl wearing lingerie appropriate to their Spice Girls nickname."
The photos will be released on November 15, just before the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at Hollywood's Kodak Theatre.
