The Spice Girls Set to play Baghdad

The Spice Girls are set to perform in Baghdad.

The recently reunited girl group face the prospect of appearing in the war-torn capital of Iraq after allowing fans to choose the location of one date on their forthcoming world tour.

An online campaign to make Baghdad 'Spice City' for one night only is now underway, and is attracting thousands of votes.

Web user Earle wrote on "It is down to us so make the right choice, choose Baghdad!"

Another 'fan', calling themselves Tensor, posted the following message on "I think they could get airlifted in to the greenzone, play a surprise gig, and get out with relative safety."

The girls - Mel B, Mel C, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham - announced the special vote last week, saying: "It's impossible for us to perform everywhere but we thought why not let our fans decide where we play? This is your chance to turn your city into 'Spice City'! All you need to do is tell us where you want to see us. We are literally in your hands."

Their statement ends with the promise: "The city with the most votes will become 'Spice City' and we'll definitely come and play there as part of our tour."
