Britney Spears Readies Circus Tour

Britney Spears Readies Circus Tour
Next week sees the start of Britney Spears’ ‘comeback’ tour, and by most accounts it’ll be a spectacle to remember. Check out the report via Extra below:

Move over Barnum & Bailey — Britney Spears is the new ringmaster in town, and her “Circus” tour is going to be more than light tricks and puffs of smoke!

The pop princess is going to be sawed in half and disappear into thin air — and those are just two of the tricks Spears has up her sleeve for her upcoming tour, “The Circus Starring Britney Spears.”

“Right away, she got into the boxes and into the magic contraptions to learn the stuff, and she’s so excited about this tour and all the elements that are in it,” illusionist-comedian Ed Alonzo dished to E! news. Alonzo has revealed that he will be performing onstage with Brit during her concerts, where the “Womanizer” singer will serve as the magician’s assistant.

Ed continued, “We’ll be doing a little dissection, transposition, a vanish, an appearance — and if I do a trick, she doesn’t just hold the props, she’s actually getting inside the big boxes or I am slicing her up.”

Alonzo also dished that Spears has a knack for magic! “I made [the tricks] really easy for her, but there are some complicated things that she is doing that you would think a contortionist would have to do, or a trained magician’s assistant,” he said, “but because she’s a dancer, it really makes sense to put her in the magic, and it works and she’s really, really good at it.”

Britney will also perform some of her hits that helped her skyrocket to the top of the charts. Ed confessed that the show would feature “the best music of Britney that people have loved over the years and, of course, brand-new favorites from the new album.”

“The Circus Starring Britney Spears” kicks off March 3 in New Orleans.

Like most, I’m hoping all works out for Britney after all the craziness of the last few years. That said, here’s hoping her performances are saying more than the nonsense she was serving up on her ‘Circus’ promo spots.
Tidbit: Britney’s video for brand new single ‘If You Seek Amy’ is set to premiere on March 2nd.
Are you anticipating Britney’s ‘Circus’ tour?

    Sam, March 2nd is false. Her site already confirmed that. The video will debut in March though, we just don’t know what date yet.

    Anyways! Can’t wait for this! Britney’s tours are always epic and shes been working really hard the last few months! All Hail Queen Britney!

    Anonymous 6:28 PM – No, Janet never did a circus theme but she DID used to do a section of her show with a childlike theme, she had giant stuffed animals and balloons and her dancers dressed up as puppets and other colorful things like that.

  9. You Mad? February 26, 2009

    LMAO @ 8:16 sounding dumb as F***. Womanizer and Circus have both been doing VERY well on the charts (Womanizer being her second #1 hit and Circus being her biggest debuting single). Clearly if they weren’t good, they wouldn’t have acheive such chart success. Dumbass….

    Britney a flop? Thats why her album sold already 3.4 million Worldwide in only 3 months? And she has 3 songs right now on the Hot 100? And she hasn’t even done any promotion since December lol. Britney owns. Haters to the left.

    No, I am not anticipating this circus tour Sam. There is no way I am going to spend my hard earned money on a show like this. I'd rather wait for something better & bigger.

    Get out of the ghetto you stupid racist piece of trash.

    At 2:37 AM –

    I’m not white, I’m black, and I AM INDEED rooting for Britney. Britney has fans of all races, be it Black, White, Asian, Indian, Native, etc. So why the hell do you gotta bring race into this anyway? You straight up sound ignorant, and it’s black folk like you that make the rest of us look bad. The fact that you had to bring race into this at all means you’re just as racist as the next person, and that ain’t right. God REALLY don’t like that kind of ugly and you need to fall back off that mess immediately and get educated, because clearly you’re not.

    firstly, i dont have the $$ right now, but even if i did, i dont think i will be spending it on britney’s concert. it’s just not worth it

    @ 2:37, No you f****** R*****, I live in the United States and got my schooling here. Where did you get yours, with all those horribly misspelled words and robust ignorance? You need to sit your ass down in front of a G.E.D book and drop this whole “im from South Central, I’m HARD!” act and get a life. BTW, What hard ass n**** sits and comments on Britney Spears to begin with? F**!

    I can’t wait for it! Britney always has the best tours! 😀

    If there is anything that Britney Spears can do, it’s put on a show. B**** gives Circ de Soliel a run foe their money. Lest we forget that a year ago she was hospitalized on the brink of insanity. I’m rooting for her and if i had the money, I’d go. And YES I am Black.
