For the first time ever, Melanie C - aka Sporty Spice - will tell her amazing life story in her own words, live on stage at the Barbican, London.
“I never told my story before because I wasn’t ready. Now I am.”
In conversation for this exclusive event, and to celebrate the publication of her autobiography, Who I Am: My Story, Melanie will give a full and honest account of what life was really like in pop group sensation, The Spice Girls. Beginning in her bedroom in the North-West of England dreaming of performing on stage, Melanie will consider the meteoric rise of The Spice Girls, from a collection of singers brought together by an ad in the paper to a worldwide sensation that would spread the message of Girl Power to stadiums around the world.
Taking in the incredible highs of becoming one of the world’s most recognisable popstars – playing at Wembley, conquering the BRITs, closing the Olympics – Melanie will also talk openly about the difficult lows. For the first time ever, she’ll open up about the pressures of fame, the shaming and bullying she experienced, the struggles she has had with her body image and mental health, and the difficulty of finding yourself when the whole world knows your name.
This is the ultimate Spice Girls fan event, sharing Melanie’s incredible story of resilience, hope and how you can find your power.
