As 2015 fades away and a New Year is ushered in, the Music world seems set to welcome back two major acts from yesteryear. Both Guns N’ Roses and the Spice Girls have made encouraging noises in recent weeks about their probable return to the spotlight in the near future.

Following the lead of Bay City Rollers?

After the triumphant return of the Bay City Rollersin December, with sell-out concerts in Scotland and plans for further dates in America and Japan in the pipeline, it seems that other well-known names are set to follow suit.

Expected relief for Guns N’ Roses’ fans

Guns N’ Roses fans must have been wondering if their heroes would ever tour again.

Yet a very public statement of intent seems to have been made over the Christmas period, with their official website being updated to display their old logo and a brand new photo being added to their profile on Facebook.

Early plans for a reunion tour seem to suggest that they will feature as the headline act at the Coachella music festival in April. With key band members Slash and Axl Rose having seemingly patched up their relationship after a long feud, the ingredients seem to be in place for a world tour involving both men in the line-up.

Positive vibes from Slash

Guitarist Slash left the globally successful group in 1996 but indicated during 2015 that a truce had been made between himself and the fiery Rose, stating that “it was probably way overdue.” With worldwide sales amounting to in excess of 100 million units, they are one of the best-selling bands in music history.

Spice Girls also to stage a comeback?

British stars the Spice Girls have also gone their separate ways in recent years, since their mega stardom during the 1990s saw ‘girl power’ push them to nine UK number one singles. With 80 million records estimated to have been sold worldwide by the group, they became a global phenomenon.

Although Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Victoria Beckham have re-united at several events since their heyday, it seems that the milestone of their 20th anniversary is making a suitable celebration inevitable in the near future.

Mel B believes re-union likely

Mel B for one has been making her thoughts on the matter clear in recent interviews.

Of the significant anniversary she told the press that “it would be rude not to celebrate so hopefully something will be happening pretty soon.”

“Scary Spice” isn’t short of work at present though. The Leeds-born singer and TV personality is set to host theLip Sync Battle UK” programme on Channel 5 in 2016. She will take on the role previously performed in the US version by LL Cool J.
