It turns out all our collective fangirling was all for naught as the Backstreet Boys have officially denied all rumours of a world tour with the Spice Girls.
A rep for the boy band confirmed to MTV News that the nineties pop tour of our dreams were only just a rumour.
The chitchat of a possible Spice Girls/BSB tour began earlier this week when the U.K.’s the Sun claimed Brian Litrell of the Backstreet Boys told the tabloid rag that they were in “early talks about maybe doing a world tour together with the Spice Girls.”
While we knew the chances of a super tour were slim to none considering the boy band’s busy touring schedule and the girl group’s lack of one, we still can’t help but be a little disappointed.
But if Kim Kardashian could get the cover of Vogue magazine, we could surely get a Spice Girls/BSB world tour, right? At least they know now that half of the world is interested.
