The British pop quintet, known for hits such as Wannabe and Say You'll Be There, announced earlier this month that their Feb. 26 concert would be their last.

Melanie Brown, known as Scary Spice, signed autographs outside a downtown Toronto nightclub after the group's second last show on Monday.

She said she was feeling "kind of emotional" about the end of the tour, and wouldn't rule out another reunion.

"Our friendship will go on forever, so who knows," she said.

The reunion began Dec. 2 with a concert in Vancouver that combined high-tech flash and a taut dance routine.

The Spice Girls toured to Montreal, around the U.S. and held 17 shows in London, England, and the requests for more concerts were still pouring in from Australia, China and other areas of the world.

The decision to cut short the reunion tour disappointed thousands of fans.

The members of the Spice Girls — Brown (Scary), Melanie Chisholm (Sporty), Geri Halliwell (Ginger), Emma Bunton (Baby) and Victoria Beckham (Posh) — said they all had other commitments, including family.

Beckham met with fans earlier Tuesday at a Holt Renfrew store in Toronto to promote her line of eyewear and designer denim.

Other members of the group also have commitments to advance their solo careers.

Chisholm will visit MuchMusic to promote the video for her new single, Carolyna, from her  solo album, This Time, due to be released in April.

Brown is slated to be a Dancing With the Stars correspondent for Access Hollywood, and is working on a a solo album.

Halliwell's children's book series featuring the strong female character Ugenia Lavender is to be launched in May.
