It’s finally happened: the Spice Girls (minus one) have reunited at last.

Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton, Mel B and Mel C kicked off their Reunion Tour in the UK on Friday night, taking to the stage in Dublin in front of screaming fans.

The foursome, minus Victoria Beckham, opened the show with Spice Up Your Life in their signature looks; Mel B, AKA Scary Spice was clad in leopard print, while Emma Bunton, AKA Baby Spice, wore a pink mini-dress.

While fans at the first of 12 shows seemed ecstatic to see the Spice Girls live for the first time in years, there was of course something missing: Victoria Beckham.

Despite an enormous amount of pressure from her former bandmates and the public, Beckham refused to join the reunion, opting instead to focus on her fashion line. But she did post a supportive message on Instagram hours ahead of the Dublin show, as did husband David Beckham.

Because friendship never ends, you guys.

Want to see the Spice Girls live? You’ll need a plane ticket. At least so far, the tour, which wraps up on June 22, is only hitting venues in the United Kingdom.
