Well first off, fans will be happy to know that Mel B is recovering and has already returned to rehearsals for the tour- which kicks of this Friday in Croke Park. The singer was rushed to hospitals on Friday after she couldn't see out of her right eye. People reported that a herpes eye infection caused the temporary blindness. According to the source:
She’s doing fine now, she’s not blind. This has happened before. She has herpes in her eye, so this can happen.
So fans can be reassured that they won't be another Spice Girl down.
On that note, here are a few useful pieces of information for concert goers:
Doors for the event open at 6 pm. Support act Jess Glynne is set to take the stage at 7 pm and the main act the Spice Girls are scheduled for 8.15 pm. As you all well know, this can be subject to change, these things never start right on time.
Concert Entry and Prohibited Items
Ahead of the most anticipated gig of the Summer, Garda and concert promoters have issued a series of guidelines and warnings. Within the warnings and guidelines, it states no queuing is allowed prior to the gates opening. Strictly no overnight/ early queuing allowed before the concerts. They warn that if patrons do turn up they will be turned away at retricted area points around the stadium.
Concert-goers are urged not to bring backpacks or large handbags. No bag larger than A4 size will be permitted inside the venue and everyone will be subject to search. There will be NO cloakroom or storage facilities on site.
They have also released a full list of prohibited items, and it is extensive:
- Audio recorders

- Camping equipment
- Chinese lanterns
- Cooler boxes
- Crash helmets
- Excessive amount of batteries, wire or cables (what counts as excessive...)
- Illegal substances
- Large umbrellas
- Large chains
- Large flags
- Light-sabres (I'm intrigued, are light-sabres something people regularly bring to concerts)
- Lasers or laser pens
- Led headbands or glow sticks
