The Spice Girls’ reunion tour will be an exclusive experience, with the girl group (minus Victoria Beckham, sadly) performing six shows around the United Kingdom. But lo and behold, there is an even more exclusive experience for Spice Girls superfans — a night inside the original Spice Bus from the 1997 movie “Spice World”!
On June 14 and 15, lucky fans will be able to sleep in the renovated bus in Market Square at Wembley Park in London. These dates happen to coincide with the Spice Girls’ performances at Wembley Stadium, which take place on June 13, 14 and 15.
Suzanne Godley, who is renting out the bus, says she has no official affiliation with the Spice Girls — she simply loves the group and is fortunate enough to know the person who bought the original “Spice World” bus.
“My greatest love is the Spice Girls (after my children and partner of course),” Godley wrote on AirBnb.
“I adored their music growing up and used to choreograph routines to all my favorite songs! I watched ‘Spice World’ on repeat and never thought I’d get the chance to go inside the actual Spice Bus — so to get this opportunity and now be able to share with other fans is just a dream come true,” Godley explained.
The interior design is certainly evocative of the girl band, thanks to disco balls, a large “Girl Power” neon light, bus seats upholstered in the U.K. flag and a zebra print carpet.
For a true ’90s throwback, you’ll have use of a CD player as well as a basket of scrunchies.
According to the AirBnb posting for the Spice Bus, it comfortably sleeps three people at a time. It would be ideal if they are three short people, as there is only 1.7 meters of space inside — about 5-and-a-half feet.
You can expect a bed, three chairs and a TV, and a small table for eating snacks (or writing hit song lyrics) in your cozy space.
Note that there are no kitchen facilities and no running water on the bus, but you will have use of a private bathroom near the bus, containing a shower and sink.
There is also no WiFi on the bus.
But who needs WiFi with all the time you’ll spend taking selfies in front of the Spice Bus’ Union Jack exterior?
According to Insider, the Spice Bus is renting for 99 pounds per night, or $128. However, competition for the rental will be fierce — remember, it’s only available for two nights!
Guests who wannabe the renters have to log onto the AirBnb listing at 8 a.m. BST on May 22 to try their luck at the booking.
So, say you’ll be there?
It is, after all, the response to the request, “Tell me what you want, what you really, really want!”
Nostalgia for the ’90s — and especially the Spice Girls — is fierce these days.
And if you’re craving yet more spicy girl goodness, mark your calendar for June 28 so you can nab a copy of the Spice Girls’ greatest hits vinyl record.
Or buy two copies — one for you and one for your Spice Girls-loving BFF — because friendship never ends!
Even Victoria Beckham knows this, even though she won’t be joining the other Girls on the reunion tour.
In February 2018, Beckham posted a photo of herself with the rest of the spice squad on Instagram, with the caption, “Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!!”
How much do you want to spice up your life with a night on the Spice Bus?
