Spice Girls fans walk out of the band’s reunion concert

Cape Town - Fans of the Spice Girls are telling them what they want – what they really, really want – and it’s better audio quality during their reunion tour.

Emma Bunton (43), Geri Horner (46), Mel Brown (43) and Mel C (45) kicked off their string of highly-anticipated comeback shows on Friday, with the first performance in Dublin’s Croke Park.

But instead of singing their praises, fans took to social media to complain about the stadium’s sound problems, ABC News reports.

But it didn’t end there.

When the four ladies took to the stage at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium in Wales on Monday evening, it was the wet conditions and terrible audio quality that had concertgoers up in arms. According to the Daily Mail, a number of fans were so angered, they left during the performance.

"It was really, really disappointing," fan Alison Powel told Claire Summers on BBC Radio Wales.

"You couldn’t hear anything they were singing. You couldn’t hear the harmonies, you couldn’t hear the words. The band drowned them out.

"When they started talking to each other and there was a bit of banter on stage, you just couldn’t hear it. It left us totally flat, so flat that we actually left early – about 45 minutes before the end," she says.

However, not all spectators found the show disappointing. Others praised the girls for a stellar performance, which saw them have six outfit changes while belting out hits such as 2 Become 1, Wannabe and Say You’ll Be There.

"It was absolutely amazing," Emily Farley told the BBC.

"I heard these reports of the sound being bad but when I was in the moment, I couldn't notice it myself."

Next on the group’s list is Manchester, Coventry, Sunderland, Edinburgh and then Bristol. They’ll finish their tour at London’s Wembley Stadium.
