20 days until the Britney Spears Circus Tour hits the Verizon Center in DC! :)
Is that not the hottest show ever?!!! Click here to see more videos from Tuesday night's performance in New Orleans.
~Here's Britney's Set List, which I was a little disappointed in. I wanted more tracks from "Circus" in the show, like "Mannequin", "Lace and Leather", "Kill the Lights", and "Unusual You."
And "Break the Ice" from Blackout is only a video presentation. (I would've loved to have seen "Gimme More" and "Toy Soldier" from Blackout on the set list as well).
The intro to "Break the Ice" would've been a perfect opener for the concert, IMO...."It's been awhile. I know I shouldn't have kept you waiting. But I'm here now."
I've heard rumors that she surprised the audience by including "Break the Ice" in the encore, but I don't know if that's true yet. But even without some of my faves in there, it's still going to be beyond incredible.
She did perform "Everytime" which was NOT on the set list so who knows what surprises she'll have in store for the other tour stops. Have you watched that video by the way? Click here to see it. So powerful and so symbolic of what she's been through. I can't imagine that song is easy for her to perform.
There's talk that Madonna may pop in on one of the shows like Britney did for her, especially since "Me Against the Music" is on the set list. I doubt DC would be the place for that to happen but I can dream. :)
~Rumor before the show was that this video was the one that would be played in the "Break the Ice" interlude. Turned out to be true. Here it is (*chills*):
~Here's a peek at the rehearsals:
