“The Circus Starring Britney Spears” will return to North America to perform in 20 cities, including two performances at the Mandalay Bay Events Center Saturday, Sept. 26 and Sunday, Sept. 27.
“The Circus Starring Britney Spears” is a dazzling display of music, dance, magic and theatrics. With its cast of nearly 50 dancers, magicians, clowns and acrobats, and a traveling staff of more than 200, the $50 million extravaganza travels with an unprecedented 60 tons of equipment in 34 trucks, for what may prove to be the most electrifying musical event ever.
“The Circus Starring Britney Spears” kicked-off in New Orleans on March 3 and Reuters reported, “The pop star…pulled out all the stops before a sell-out crowd of 16,400 to launch her much anticipated world tour.” To date, the Circus is the highest-grossing tour of 2009 in North America.
Spears is currently touring Europe to rave reviews. The UK’s Daily Mail claimed, “The Circus starring Britney Spears, the relentlessly high octane and superbly choreographed affair delighted 23,000 assembled fans” while The Financial Times wrote, “…with costume changes, a mini-magic show and blingy bicycles, the presentation was a feast for the eyes.”
Spears said, “I’m so excited to bring The Circus back to North America. I’ve made some really cool changes to the show that I think my fans are really going to love. I also get to bring the show to some new cities we missed the first time around.”
Spears is one of the top-selling artists of the last decade and, to date, has sold in excess of 63 million albums worldwide. These albums include Baby One More Time (1999), Oops!… I Did It Again (2000), Britney (2001), In The Zone (2003) and Blackout (2007). Her current album Circus was released on her birthday, Dec. 2, 2008 and debuted at No. 1 in six countries including the United States, Canada, Switzerland, Mexico, Brazil and Japan. It also landed in the Top 10 in an additional seven countries.
