The four remaining members of the band, who will also play in Coventry, Sunderland, and Bristol, revealed the tour dates in a video on Twitter on Monday.

The Spice Girls have been teasing a reunion tour since February when images of the band, including Victoria Beckham, were posted on social media.
The band originally split up in 2000, having played as a four-piece without Horner for two years, following her exit from the group in 1998.
The reunited five-piece played a reunion tour in 2007 and went on to perform together at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The Spice Girls will perform at Manchester Etihad Stadium (June 1), Coventry Ricoh Stadium (June 3), Sunderland Stadium of Light (June 6), Edinburgh BT Murrayfield Stadium (June 8), Bristol Ashton Gate Stadium (June 10) and London Wembley Stadium (June 15).
Glynne re-tweeted the Spice Girls’ announcement, writing: “ARE YOU MAD! I’m Joining @spicegirls ON TOUR! Y’all best come through cause this stadium tour is gonna kick OFF! ”
The Spice Girls, one of the biggest acts in British popular music in the 1990s, have sold more than 85 million albums worldwide.
The band is the biggest selling female group of all-time.
Spice Girls released two albums as a five-piece: Spice (1996) and Spiceworld (1997).
The group also released a third album, Forever (2000), which was recorded without Horner.
Mel B previously said on ITV’s Loose Women that she hoped Beckham would join the band on tour.
