The Spice Girls may be Hawaii-bound.

Spice Girls may
do Hawaii show

If so, they'd perform here in
late summer or early fall

No need to rush to the box office just yet, but the Spice Girls may be coming to Honolulu in late summer or early fall.

Marek Lieberberg, one of Europe's most prominent concert and event promoters and a part-time Maui resident, hopes to bring the English group here between its current United States and European tours.

"Nothing is close to being set, but (Lieberberg) wants to arrange a concert here probably at the Blaisdell Arena in late August or September," said a Lieberberg representative on Maui. "We hope to have this finalized one way or the other by the end of July."

Lieberberg promoted two sold-out Celine Dion performances earlier this year at the arena. He also promoted the Spice Girls tour in Germany, but he is not handling their United States tour that began Monday in West Palm Beach, Fla., and ends Aug. 26 in Dallas.

Spice Girls, the manufactured quintet-turned-quartet, is composed of Baby (Emma Bunton), Posh (Victoria Adams), Scary (Melanie Brown) and Sporty (Melanie Chisolm). Ginger Spice (Geri Haliwell) recently quit the group.

The group has taken the cult of personality to the maximum, compensating for less-than-amazing voices and dancing abilities by creating characters with brand identities.
