Britney Spears began her comeback tour last night in New Orleans, her first real tour in 5 years, and although understandably nervous, the early major reviews have been good. MTV said…
…welcome to Britney's Circus, a big, huge, loud, funny, nonsensical three-ring affair that includes everything under the big top — even an actual big top. Broken down into four acts — "Circus," "House of Fun," "Freakshow/Peepshow" and "Electro Circ"— the two-hour show is every set designer and choreographer's wet dream, or nightmare, or both. There are literally dozens of costume changes, dancers of all shapes and sizes and acrobats and set pieces that fly about willy-nilly. It's truly a sight to behold … the biggest show under one roof. At times, Britney herself is almost dwarfed by the spectacle. She looks great in her myriad of outfits (Genie! Drill Sergeant! Kinda Stripper!) And she can still move with the best of them…
And the LA Times says:
But on Tuesday's opening night of her "Circus" tour at the New Orleans Arena, Britney Spears, the mighty Aphrodite with the troublesome tawdry streak, nonetheless renewed her claim as one of the world's most adept manipulators of the public interest. Powering through a 90-minute show that integrated her impetuous teen hits with the more perverse material from the albums she released after a very public breakdown that made her a constant in the tabloids, the Louisiana native flashed her famous good ol' girl smile at the fans, mostly female, who still find her a worthy patron saint of the erotic arts.
Someone associated with Britney needs to get me tickets for tomorrows show in Atlanta. If I went I would tell Britney that I thought the circus theme for her show was good, because if you think about it, her life has been a "circus" for the past few years. You know, because of all the turmoil. And she’d be real impressed because no one had mentioned that yet. And then we’d do it.
