This interactive concert event, complete with five-part harmonies, original choreography, iconic costumes, British accents, and a stunning “girl power” cast delivers a nostalgic experience that is sure to “Spice Up Your Summer”! “SPICE WANNABE” will premiere Saturday, July 1, 2023, inside the Thunderland Showroom at Excalibur Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas for a limited four-week engagement. Tickets go on sale on today, Tuesday, May 23 at 10am at Excalibur.com.
“SPICE WANNABE – The Spice Girls Tribute” is not your typical tribute show, it is an immersive 90’s concert experience that creates an electrifying atmosphere that gets everyone singing and dancing along to the biggest Spice Girls hits including “Wannabe,” “2 Become 1,” “Say You’ll Be There,” “Spice Up Your Life,” “Too Much,” and many more!
The Spice Girls took the music scene by storm nearly 30 years ago, releasing 10 singles, three albums and selling over 90 million records worldwide, cementing their place in pop-culture history. Today they still maintain a loyal and energetic cult-like following and, “SPICE WANNABE” was created to deliver a high-energy concert experience not only for that 90’s generation but for all ages. The engagement also coincides with the 25th anniversary of the iconic Spice Girls sophomore album, SpiceWorld, which reached No. 1 in 13 countries.
“‘SPICE WANNABE’ is all about getting audiences up on their feet singing and dancing along to the songs, while the cast breaks the fourth wall, making the show a truly interactive experience,” says creator and co-producer, Casey McConachie (who also plays Baby Spice). “When you attend our show, we consider you part of the ‘SPICE WANNABE’ family and encourage you to dress up as your favorite Spice Girl, as many of us did back in the 90’s!”
“The talent within ‘SPICE WANNABE’ is top of the line with incredible performers who have graced stages around the world,” says Adam Steck, founder & CEO of SPI Entertainment and co-producer of the show. “We are excited to partner with Casey McConachie to bring this incredibly authentic tribute show to an even bigger audience.”
“We want to transport the audience through these iconic hits and visuals back to the 90’s when MTV’s TRL filled your afternoons and the Spice Girls dominated the airwaves,” says SPI COO Alex Schechter.
When McConachie decided to make her passion project a reality, she knew she had to pay close attention to detail, capturing the sass and energy of each Spice Girls individual personality, studying and recreating memorable live performances with full choreography, dressing in iconic costumes, and singing live in five-part harmonies.
Not only does the full-scale production showcase five incredible women portraying Baby Spice, Scary Spice, Sporty Spice, Ginger Spice and Posh Spice, the show features the Spice Boys dancers with their choreography created by Jonathan Claudio. Claudio also collaborated with McConachie on additional choreography for certain numbers showcasing the full cast. Justin Velarde serves as costume designer and also does “double duty” by taking the stage as a Spice Boy. All of the music was produced by the show’s band on tour: Dave Landry, Adrian Passarelli, and Colin Brodie Campbell.
With their “girl power” mantra, the Spice Girls redefined the girl-group concept by appealing to a young female fanbase. Those young fans in the 90’s are now women, wives and mothers – making “SPICE WANNABE” a perfect girls’ night out! It’s time to spice up your summer in Las Vegas!
