The Economics Of Pretending To Be The Spice Girls

January 22, 2016 in Daily Bulletin

It’s been about 16 years since the Spice Girls rocked the world. But their legacy lives on writes Nazanin Shahnavaz:

  • Spice Girl tribute groups have popped up where women use wigs and make up to dress up as the Spice Girls.
  • They do live performances where fans get really into it and sing along as if it were a performance by the real group.
  • Some requests are unconventional. A group once performed at the funeral of a super-fan.
  • One company that puts them together – Pink Productions – has an ensemble of characters ready to play any of the Spice Girls in case one should become sick or find another career.
  • The company also has Taylor Swift and One Direction tribute performers.
