Many of the band‘s loyal followers have been left disappointed after they were hit with a glitch when trying to buy their tickets today.
Seats for the girl group’s highly anticipated reunion tour went on sale this morning, with thousands of fans flocking to the site to secure their place at the gigs.
After the sale started, ticket-hunters were placed in a queue with the message: “Wow! Loads of people have turned up today.
“As soon many people are trying to book tickets, we’ve started a queue. Dom’t refresh this page as you may lose your place.”
However, many fans reported received an error message stating they had been kicked out of the queue due to technical issues and had to start their wait time agan.
Many claimed they had missed out on tickets due to the troubles with the system.
One wrote: “Wow #ticketmaster what a total shambles. Kept getting kicked out of the queue with an “oops something went wrong” message …..yes you didn’t prepare for the volume of people wanting tickets is what went wrong.
“Well looks like I’ve missed out on #spicegirls tickets.”
Another wrote: “@TicketmasterUK @spice… sort out your f***** system as I’ve been kicked off like 15 times now on laptop and phone #fuming #spicegirls #Ticketmaster.”
A third tweeted: “@TicketmasterUK I wish I bloody could choose my ticket. I’ve been kicked out to many time #spicegirls #wishfulthinking #uselesswebsite #alwayshappens.”
The Sun Online has contacted a representative for Ticketmaster for comment.
Since the tickets went on sale this morning, the band has added an extra date in Manchester and one in London to the run of shows which kick off next summer.

Mel B, Melanie C, Emma Bunton, and Geri Horner officially announced their huge UK comeback tour this month with a hilarious new video.
Victoria Beckham is not taking part, but she has wished the other girls luck with the shows.
The foursome confirmed that they will play six stadium shows across the UK with support from Jess Glynne, and tickets go on sale Saturday at 10.30am.
Kicking off at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium on 1 June, the group will call at Coventry’s Ricoh Stadium two days later, the Stadium of Light in Sunderland on 6 June, BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh on 8 June, Bristol’s Ashton Gate Stadium on 10 June, and ends on 15 June at London’s Wembley Stadium.
The Spice Girls first shot to fame as a fivesome in 1994, continuing as a four piece between 1998 and 2000 after Geri quit to go solo.
The group then reunited in 2008 before performing together at the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.
Earlier this year, rumours of another reunion heated up when all five women posed for a photo together during a meeting with their old manager, Simon Fuller, at Geri’s North London home.
