Reviews are coming in for the first stop on Britney’s The Circus: Starring Britney Spears Tour, and sure there are some kinda decent ones, but why would I want post those? People reports:
Descending from above in a red ringmaster-meets-dominatrix outfit to sing her hit “Circus,” she showed that her body was tight, even if her dancing always wasn’t. Indeed, throughout the show’s four sections, there was a lot more strutting than real choreographic feats from Spears. And there was a decided lack of joy in her performance, which felt labored at times. It didn’t help that she hardly engaged the audience, not addressing them at all until after her lone encore, “Womanizer,” performed in sexed-up cop uniforms. Given that Spears probably doesn’t do much live singing either, it left a definite chill in the air. The show was all about the spectacle, with vibrant visuals, illusions, Cirque du Soleil-inspired aerialists and an army of dancers taking some of the focus – and the pressure – away from Spears. There was one major miscue, when Spears didn’t join two backup singers for a rendition of Duffy’s “I’m Scared” – apparently because the lyric sheet went missing onstage. When she wrapped the concert about 90 minutes after emerging, she seemed more relieved than anything that it was all over.
I hope no one is shocked. I mean, because well, it’s Britney Spears. How did you think it was gonna turn out? It’s complete comedy at this point. I’m surprised the review didn’t mention a cat stepping on a hoe or an anvil being dropped on somebody’s head.
