1997 was a fantastic year for film. A year that featured some of the most iconic releases of the last 25 years, including the likes of the original Men In Black, the movie that made Jim Carrey and undeniable Hollywood legend Liar Liar and one of the most successful and groundbreaking movies of all time, James Cameron’s Titanic.
There was also legendary another movie that was released in that year. Spice World. Yep, whether you like it or not, Spice World became one of the most talked about movies of the year, taking over a frankly unbelievable $150million at the box office both in the UK and in the USA.
For those of you who haven’t seen the film, or those of who you pretend you haven’t to hide your shame, Spice World is a musical-comedy that follows the lives of The Spice Girls; Geri, Victoria, Emma, Mel B and Mel C and for most of the film, they tour London and the UK in a massive Union Jack-covered bus.
Well for those of you who wished you were in The Spice Girls’ gang back in the day, we have got some amazing news for you. As of next week, you’ll be able to rent out the legendary double-decker bus from the film, courtesy of Airbnb!
The impressive ‘Spice Bus’ will be available to rent from Wednesday 22nd May for the weekend of 14th-15th June, when The Spice Girls will be returning to Wembley. The bus will be stationed at Wembley Park, giving you the perfect location to get yourselves to Wembley Stadium for the gig.
According to Airbnb, the inside of the bus has had an ‘interior makeover’ and the description states: ‘working with some incredible designers, we’ve turned it into accommodation so you can stay the night and live out every fan’s wildest dreams’ and judging by the pictures, it looks absolutely incredible on the inside!
The description also states that although the bus had its own makeover, the designers have tried to ‘include as many little touches as possible inspired by the girls and their music, to make the inside just as iconic as the outside’. This will also be the first time the bus has ever been available to stay on.
The bus can sleep 3 guests and both the upstairs and downstairs are available to use. Upstairs, guests will find a double bed, a day bed which can accommodate the additional third guest and a separate dressing room area. Downstairs though, is really where the magic happens, as the guests will find a spacious seating area with 3 Union Jack-covered cinema seats, sitting in front of a neon ‘Girl Power’ sign. There is also a big flat screen TV and a classic 90’s CD player, perfect for putting on The Spice Girls’ Greatest Hits before the gig.
The Spice Bus will be available to book on Airbnb on Wednesday 22nd May from 8am, so make sure you set your alarms so you don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity!
