Mel B has told Spice Girls fans she hopes the sound “will be much better” for the rest of the groups’ stadium tour after some fans walked out of the first gig in Dublin.

Mel, along with bandmates Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Mal C kicked off the 13-date tour in front of 75,000 people at Croke Park on Friday night.

But many fans took to social media during and after the gig complaining about the sound quality, with some even leaving midway through the gig.

Addressing the sound issues in an Instagram story, Mel B said: “We will see you in Cardiff. And hopefully the vocals and the sound will be much, much better, pfft.”

HuffPost UK have contacted band’s reps for comment.

The Dublin gig marked the first time the band had performed together since the 2012 London Games opening ceremony.

After emerging from beneath the huge stage, they opened the show with their number 1 hit Spice Up Your Life.

Backed by a huge production, the message of unity, togetherness and love was clear from the off.

“Welcome to Spice World,” Geri told the crowd. “Spice girls, spice boys, everyone is welcome. We want every single one of you to feel special tonight. Like a king or a queen, we celebrate you. But I got to say there are a lot of queens here tonight.”

The 23-song setlist featured all nine of the group’s number 1 singles, as well as a few surprises.

Scary, Baby, Ginger and Sporty had six costume changes each - and there were nods to some of their most famous looks, including Geri’s iconic Union Jack dress.

The group are performing another 12 sold-out stadium shows across the UK over the coming weeks, culminating in three sold-out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium next month.
