Super fans on the wrong track: Melanie C and her Spice Girls colleague Geri Horner love the British band Blur so much that they even had to be carried off the stage at a Britpopper concert.
The Sporty Spice Melanie C remembered a show by the “Song 2” group in the Astoria concert hall in London, in which she and the Ginger Spice Geri Horner jumped on stage.
The singer (“Blame It On Me”) said that she had “so many funny blur stories” from the past and revealed that she and her bandmates Geri and Mel B (Scary Spice) were in the mosh pit at the Mile End Blur Stadium concert in 1995.

Spice Girls have to be indecent …
In an interview with “The Line of Best Fit” Melanie said: “I am a big fan of Blur and I have seen her so many times. I love all of their albums, but Parklife is great and it came out when the Spice Girls were founded. I have so many funny blur stories.
They had this big gig at the Mile End stage and that was before we released anything, but we must have already had our record deal because we didn’t have to pay admission. ”

In 1994 five girls answered an advert in The Stage newspaper for a new girl band. 25 years later, those five girls headline Wembley Stadium, for the third night in a row! Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that all these years later we would be playing to sold out stadiums, performing what I believe to be the best show we’ve ever done. It’s an honor and a privilege to share a stage with my fellow Spices, @therealgerihalliwell @officialmelb @emmaleebunton and the gorgeous @victoriabeckham will always be missed (hopefully someday to return)! I never forget though, none of this would have been possible without you – the unbelievable fans. You have made a very normal girl feel incredibly special and I can never thank you enough for this. I love you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to live this amazing life.
The 46-year-old singer and the 47-year-old Geri got into “trouble” because they jumped onto the stage on their second visit to a blur show.
Damon Albarn, the 52-year-old lead singer of the English band, subsequently confirmed that he would have allowed the two to stay on stage if he had known they were Spice Girls.
Melanie added about the experience: “Then in 1997, I and Geri jumped on stage at the Astoria, but were accompanied by the security guards.
After that, Damon said that if he had known who we were, he would have left us on stage. We got into trouble for it, but we’re Spice Girls, sometimes we just have to be indecent! ”(Bang)
