Melanie C and Sink the Pink join forces for European tour

Melanie C and Sink The Pink have added new dates to their fast-approaching live show, debuting on a tour of Pride events this summer.

Beginning in Sao Paolo on June 21st, this thrilling collaboration will also bring the party to the likes of London, Stockholm, Amsterdam, Brighton, Dublin, New York, Madrid and Berlin.

A tour from Melanie C and Sink The Pink is perhaps no less than you’d expect of a Spice Girl and a nightclub-turned-movement who (in their own fierce, fearless ways) have always taken the road less trodden.

A long-time ally and icon, the friendship between Melanie and Sink The Pink ringleader Glyn Fussell came to its most creative fruition last summer, when Chisolm appeared at the STP-co-founded festival, Mighty Hoopla.

Seizing the opportunity to do something surprising and new, the pair threw themselves into one-off show involving all the hits, a sequined catsuit (with added Adidas, of course), and four extra Spices in drag. If Brockwell Park had a roof, the ecstatic response would have torn it off, and so an idea was sewn for Melanie and Sink The Pink to come back with something bigger, better and brasher than ever before.

The last year or so has seen a rich period of evolution, collaboration and celebration for Melanie C and Sink The Pink alike. This month (24th May), Melanie will, of course, reunite with The Spice Girls for the band’s enormously-anticipated UK stadium tour.

She is also working on brand new, completely re-energised solo material, following unexpected Next Gen co-signs ranging from global sensation Billie Eilish to hip-hop royalty Amine.

Introducing the tour for the first time, Melanie says: “this is a bit of dream come true for me! I’m going on tour with Sink the Pink, the most inclusive, fun and fabulous club night in London and we’re taking their best drag queens round the world, for a truly special show. I can’t wait!”

Glyn, meanwhile, stated: “Melanie has been a long time supporter and friend of Sink The Pink and over the last few years we have created some of the most memorable moments in our history with her, with the standout being last year’s Mighty Hoopla performance.

“It’s not every day a bunch of drag queens get to step out and tour the world with a Spice Girl. This tour shows how committed Melanie is to her LGBTQ fans and we are frankly shitting sequins we are so excited. World here we come!”

This summer, join Melanie C and Sink The Pink as two become one, and pop history is made.
