So far, the Spice Girls (minus Posh Spice) have played Dublin and Cardiff, and fans at both shows have complained about not being able properly hear the concert.
Some fans have left gigs early, while others are even demanding refunds.
Mel B (a.k.a. Scary Spice) addressed complaints about the sound following the Dublin show at Croke Park, admitting via Instagram story that "Hopefully, the vocals and the sound will be much, much better."
Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case, as plenty more fans in Cardiff have voiced similar complaints. See some of the responses from fans below.

Reading about sound issues at Spice Girls and I'm 80% sure the issue is Croke Park itself, when I worked at U2 years back the first night I was stationed at the top at the back right hand side corner and the sound was awful, loads of complaints.— B e r n i e ☕️🌈 (@groovybernie) May 27, 2019
There's something wrong when the crowd at @spicegirls concert are all sitting down because no one has a clue what song is on because the sound really is THAT bad. @mcd_productions @CrokePark @IrishTimes @LovinDublin #SpiceWorldTour #SpiceGirl pic.twitter.com/QkENc7BJ8Y— Sabrina Egerton (@sabrinasstyle_) May 24, 2019
The #spicegirls put on a fabulous show tonight. But am really surprised that nobody seems to be talking about how poor the sound was. Could hardly make out the words they were saying at times. Was worst sound I've ever heard at a concert pic.twitter.com/UnKsi3B4Wo— Louise Sullivan (@lousul) May 24, 2019
Watching @spicegirls last night in Cardiff was my 10 year old selfs dream come true. Although I was soaked & freezing I sang and danced my heart out. Those in charge of sound need to improve. You couldn't hear a word when they were talking #spicegirlstour pic.twitter.com/oamXl3NBeI— Emma (@Emz_louu) May 28, 2019
Concert goers complaining yet again about the #SpiceGirls concert in Cardiff, maybe there's nothing wrong with the sound & they just can't sing!? 🤔🤔— Celeste McCreesh 📚📚📚 (@CelesteMcCreesh) May 28, 2019
@spicegirls you don't ever come to Cardiff and rip off people again. You should publicly apologise, and reimburse the fans who were affected by the sound issues. It was lazy and fraudulent not to fix the sound issues after the gig in Ireland went so badly.— Johnny Vedmore 🌹 (@JohnnyVedmore) May 27, 2019
