Spice Girls Make Secret Deal
10/16/2007 6:27 AM, E! Online
Sarah Hall

The Spice Girls have found the perfect fit for their new album.

In the latest example of name-brand artists using nontraditional means to sell their music (see: Radiohead; Paul McCartney; Madonna), the reunited pop group has teamed with Victoria's Secret to sell its upcoming greatest-hits CD exclusively through the lingerie chain's stores and on its Website.

The disc is due for release Nov. 13 and is expected to retail for between $10 and $12. It will also be available for download through iTunes and other music sites.

Customers can preorder a hard copy of the 15-track album for 24 hours between midnight Wednesday and Thursday.

Capitol Records initially approached the lingerie purveyor with its proposal in September, far later than Victoria's Secret typically begins setting up its holiday marketing, per the Wall Street Journal. The Spice Girls helped to seal the deal by agreeing to perform at the chain's annual fashion show on Nov. 15. (CBS will air the tribute to all things skimpy, scanty and slinky on Dec. 4.)

The Girls kick off a reunion tour Dec. 2 in Vancouver and will continue on to dates in London, San Jose, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, Cologne, Madrid, London, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Sydney, Cape Town and Buenos Aires.

The erstwhile Scary, Sporty, Ginger, Baby and Posh proved they still appeal to the masses by selling out their Dec. 15 concert in London within 38 seconds. Promoters have since added additional dates to the touring schedule in an effort to meet demand.

This seems like it'll be extremely ineffective way to market the CD.

No joke. I was thinking of checking out the CD because I was a huge fan of theirs when they were new, but there's not even a Victoria's Secret by where I live. I think the closest one is an hour or two away.

Do they expect this to be such a hit that they don't need to put it in other places to sell?

actually, Bob Dylan did this once with one of his cds, he made a lotta money. BUT, that's probably b/c he's mainly for guys so he opened up to a new market with VS sales.

But the Spice Girls don't have that many fans as it is (here) so I'd say this is a stupid move. Hopefully they're ON some Victoria's Secret commercials, or something.

They shoulda gone the starbucks route.

Starbucks would work for them.

Bob Dylan seriously made money selling his CDs at Victoria Secrets? Wouldn't have thunk it, to be honest.

Saw this in the shops yesterday. Costs a bit more than most CDs, but seems to include a DVD with all their old videos. Basically it's just a greatest hits package with what looks like maybe 2 or perhaps 3 new songs. Doesn't seem worth it at all, really. Embarassingly enough, I already have their 3 previous albums.

Well, where I step foot on, we call the penal stuff the gay porn. Chick on chick is just regular porn. While it's gay in the exact sense of the word, I would never call it as such.

Translation: no. Hot chick on chick action is and never shall be gay.

-HECK!

Spice up your wallet ... the Spice Girls have been offered $22m to tour Australia

THE Spice Girls have been offered 10 million ($22 million) to perform in Australia. The band - who have already performed in Canada, the US, Spain, Germany and the UK - have reportedly been offered the massive deal to extend their tour Down Under.

A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "The girls have a massive fan base in Australia and concert promoters are offering them a huge amount of cash to perform there."

The girls - Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Mel B, Geri Halliwell and Mel C - are said to be considering 12 dates in Sydney, Perth and Brisbane for March.

Their tour is currently scheduled to end in Atlantic City, in America, on February 29.

Meanwhile, Mel B's injured ankle is causing problems for their London dates. The star twisted her ankle following New Year's Eve celebrations with her bandmates and Victoria's husband David at London's Claridge's hotel.

Geri told fans at London's O2 arena on Wednesday: "Mel B got so drunk she fell down a flight of stairs and twisted her ankle, so she won't be busting the moves out tonight."
Mel B is not the first Spice Girl to injury herself since the tour began.

Emma was left hobbling around on crutches for weeks after falling on stage in Las Vegas and spraining her ankle last month.

In all honesty, though, I imagine the concert audience would've been fewer people than the group themselves.
