AEG Live will produce arena shows by the reunited Spice Girls in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and London. The ‘90s pop sensation announced the reunion at the O2 Arena in London yesterday.

The five-piece group will perform shows in 11 cities in eight countries, beginning with a concert Dec. 7 in Los Angeles, most likely at Staples Center. The tour will press on to Las Vegas, New York, London, Cologne, Madrid, Beijing, Hong Kong, Sydney, Cape Town and Buenos Aires.

Local/regional promoters will be used in non-AEG Live markets. They group is expected to play four dates in London, probably at the O2 Arena, and singles in other cities. It is possible more dates will be added.

The agent for the Spice Girls is CAA's Jeff Frasco, who also books such successful AEG Live tours as High School Musical, American Idols, and others. Tickets are expected to go on sale within two weeks.

The tour will be the first time all five singers -- Geri "Ginger" Halliwell, Melanie "Sporty" Chisholm, Melanie "Scary" Brown, Victoria "Posh" Beckham and Emma "Baby" Bunton -- have performed together since 1998, when Halliwell left the group.

The tour will support the November release of a greatest hits compilation through Virgin Records. In addition, filmmaker Bob Smeaton ("The Beatles Anthology," "Who's Next") will oversee an official documentary on the reformed band, which will be distributed worldwide at an undisclosed date. The group admitted the reunion is unlikely to become permanent. "We want our kids to see what we do," said Beckham, who is married to soccer superstar David. "I might even get to be the cool one in my family for once."
