The Spice Girls seemed to leave the door open for another reunion when their tour ended in February, but Melanie Brown says that door has shut for good.
Asked whether the group would ever come together to tour again, Brown offered a quick and emphatic "No" to reporters Thursday night at the 8th Annual BMI Urban Awards in Beverly Hills, adding, "[last year's tour] was our final goodbye."
But Scary Spice still misses her bandmates – Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) – despite comments she made recently, which indicated she and the girls are "not in touch much."

Friendship never ends?
That's not exactly true, admits Melanie Brown, who says she doesn't speak regularly to her fellow Spice Girls. "We're not in touch much," she tells the new issue of British magazine Closer.
And that includes Victoria Beckham – even though the two former bandmates live just a few miles apart in Los Angeles.
"Victoria and I are very different," Brown explains. "People bracket us together because we live in the same city and we're both interested in fashion. Victoria's fashion line has been very successful and hopefully mine will be too. But that's where the similarities begin and end."

Sure, the Spice Girls world tour (which wound down in February) offered plenty of onstage action. But some of the best moments happen behind the scenes. Witness: Victoria Beckham sharing a pre-show liplock with her hunky hubby David Beckham. The tour may be over – but see the moments you missed in PEOPLE's backstage gallery. (See the photos here.)

It's official! Using their song lyrics and blog, the Spice Girls bid a final farewell Wednesday to cap the conclusion of their successful reunion tour.
"Our time is up ... we've come to the end of the road ... there are tears of both sadness and joy. Look how far we've come!," the group wrote on their Web site. "Yes, our reunion tour is proof that dreams do come true."
The letter to fans on the Spice blog was signed with love from Emma [Bunton], Geri [Halliwell], Mel B [Brown], Melanie C [Chisolm] and Victoria [Beckham] after concluding a song best summed up their feelings:
"Goodbye my friend, it's not the end ... So glad we made it, time will never ever change it ... "

Planning to catch the Spice Girls on the next go-round? Don't hold your breath!
That's the pessimistic prognosis from Geri Halliwell (a.k.a. Ginger Spice), who tells Billboard magazine that a reunion tour "probably won't happen ever again."
The group's Return of the Spice Girls World Tour finishes in Toronto on February 26 and that, she said, "is the last time you will ever get to see this Girl Power, the five Spices on the stage as one."

The Spice Girls are saying goodbye – at least for now. The reunited Girl Power enthusiasts will end their tour Feb. 26 in Toronto, the Girls announced Friday on their official Web site, citing a need to return to family and personal commitments.

In a holiday treat for Spice Girls fans in Britain, the group took to the stage Saturday night – although Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) showed signs of a recent ankle injury.
Still, when she came onto the stage, Bunton shouted, "We are back again!" And Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice) greeted the crowd, saying, "Hello, London!"
In the front row, Victoria Beckham's family cheered for the group, and her eldest son, Brooklyn, waved to his mom (aka Posh Spice) when she came close to where they were sitting during the opening sequence.

The Spice Girls may be dancing on air during their reunion, but they hit much weightier topics – in particular, Geri Halliwell's abrupt exit from the group in 1998 – in their upcoming documentary, clips from which hit the Internet this week.
"I just felt like the band had got so big, and the girls were almost like they didn't need me anymore, really," says Halliwell, aka Ginger Spice, of her decision to strike out on her own, leaving her four bandmates in the lurch.
