The Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys are (sadly) not joining forces for a reunion tour, despite an inaccurate report circulating on the Internet. On Tuesday, The Sun published an interview with Backstreet Boys singer Brian Littrell, who told the paper, “We are actually in early talks about maybe doing a world tour together with the Spice Girls.”

A number of blogs picked up the story, despite the fact that the Backstreet Boys just announced they’re touring this summer with Avril Lavigne. And unfortunately, Gossip Cop has learned that the purported Spice Girls/Backstreet Boys tour is not actually happening. Of course, as one can well imagine, fake tour names like “Boys” And “Girls” were mentioned.

In any event, it seems that Littrell’s interview was from a while back, and it’s not clear why it made the rounds again today. Gossip Cop also checked with a Mel B. rep, who tells us there’s been absolutely no talk of a joint tour with the Backstreet Boys. The news that there’s no such tour planned is, depending on your view, either an absolute blessing or a total bummer. Gossip Cop won’t offer its opinion about the non-existent Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls tour.
