Britney coming to Charlotte in August

Britney Spears kicked off her “Femme Fatale” tour in Sacramento, Calif., Thursday night, and it must have gone pretty well: On Friday morning, she announced she will bring the tour to Time Warner Cable Arena this summer.

The 29-year-old pop princess has set Aug. 25 as the concert date; tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 25, through Ticketmaster.

It’s likely to be a provocative, hit-filled show: According to an MTV report, Spears “took to the stage (in Sacramento) on Thursday night in a collection of revealing outfits, including fishnet stockings and a sexy silver hotpants and bra ensemble, sporting a more fuller-figure than usual. She opened her 22-song set with hit, ‘Hold It Against Me,’ powering through some of her most famous tunes and ending with ‘Toxic’ and ‘Till The World Ends.’ ”

No opening acts were announced for the Charlotte show, although rapper Nicki Minaj opened Thursday night.

Although Spears brought her “Circus” tour to Greensboro Coliseum in September 2009, she hasn’t performed in Charlotte since the “Dream Within a Dream” tour came here (to the old Charlotte Coliseum) in 2002.


The press release issued by Live Nation and Time Warner Cable Arena notes that "Citi cardmembers will also have access to presale tickets through Citi's Private Pass Program. For complete presale details visit www.citiprivatepass.com
."

Spears will play the RBC Center in Raleigh the night before coming to Charlotte (on Aug. 24).

I can hardly wait.

Oh, by the way, what's she gonna do while she's here?

TC said...

To Ronnie at 12:11 PM...........first off,learn how to spell correctly,and your statement will have more meaning! Second,Britney Spears WOULD be more appropriate doing a show at the Uptown Cabaret because that`s the type person she is!

It's funny. The only posters that want to go see Britney can't even spell correctly.

You guys kill me. You gotta admit....if you can't make fun of Britney, who can you have a chuckle at?

I wish her well and really hope for her (and anyone's) success, but I gotta take my cheap shots when they're this easy.

You can call her an entertainer. You just can't call her a singer. Brit hasn't sung a live note in her life! I'm just glad she is doing something to support herself and her little ones. Long Live Autotune!

I bought my ticket.I've seen her once before in 2009 and its been the greatest show ive been to, to date.She puts on a great show. Britney is one of the greatest entertainers in the industry. She has proven to be a class act.
