I think this is a blatant hint at a reunion tour! Im expecting an announcement something along the lines of "We didnt realise just how much we missed eachother until we performed on that olympic stage"... Dont be surprised people!!
Doubt it. They have other commitments. VB doesn't seem very interested , has her fashion empire, David, kids and doesn't seem to like being the one who doesn't seem to sing much .She reportedly had most problems last tour. Emma has her radio show. Mel B has TV commitments. Its like S Club 7 who would have come back for a tour if Jon and Hannah were not busy making new careers in the West End. The SG's don't need the money - unless they invested really badly.
The Olympics gig though did the job. Its coverage, and, judging by some of the theatre professionals in the right age group's twitters, it brings back positive memories. All the newspapers are mentioning the musical in their reports . it just stirs interest and makes them visible nicely. There's other things coming too. Mel C is going to be perfroming in JCS to enough people to pack Viva for months and Emma already has enough twitter followers to fill it for a year and a popular radioshow.
The interesting bits are the rest of the casting which will decide if its sounds right (and the SG's have to sound right given the disaster it is for most people to try and sing them without matching the SG's sound) and how much time, interest and money is put into the show if they want it to last . Brian May shows how to do it tp preserve your legacy - although he missed out not using the WWRY cast as support last night.
