Britney Spears' Circus in New Orleans...ZOMGosh!!

Note: I don't usually post this much in one day so be sure you don't miss the two posts below this one, especially Lisa's. There's important information on how you can help her family, online memorials, etc. Thank you.


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:

~Excellent Twitter play-by-play of the NO show from @britneylive.

~A few pics from the show from @britneylive's TwitPics (click the name to see all of them):

~And finally, I've ordered the costume and it's on its way:

Be prepared for an onslaught of pics/video from Amanda and me on the 24th!

Bruce said...

I admit that Britney is my secret addiction. I don't care about what they write in the press; I don't care about the sensationalism... I just like her music and always have. Even her cover of Sonny and Cher's The Beat Goes On.

And you write up GREAT reviews so I'm looking forward to concert night. I wish she was coming to Austin!

J Morgetron said...

She's not coming to Omaha this time around so I'll look forward to seeing your upcoming post!

My daughter's taking skating lessons and they play "Womanizer". It's pretty funny seeing a bunch of six-year-olds singing along to that song.

Mik said...

Looking forward to your posts about this concert, want to see pics of you in the costume.

I have a passe of grand daughters who would love to go especially if grandpas pays!

Have fun at the show. I'm so glad to hear she's getting back out there proving she knows how to do her thing.

Can't wait for the review.

BlondeBlogger said...

How awesome are all of you?!!!! Love to you guys, and thanks for your wonderful comments!

Like I said in Haloscan comments, the costume arrived today and it looks REALLY good! But it's also really short, and I'm really tall, so I'm making some adjustments on it.

Thanks again for being so wonderful! I so <3 you guys! *hug*
