The thrilling journey of Britney Spears’ monumental Circus tour started in New Orleans eight months ago and reached its grand conclusion this week in Australia. With a mesmerizing run that delighted over a million music enthusiasts across various nations including the U.S., Britain, Australia, France, Sweden, Russia, and Canada, this tour stands as a testament to Britney’s global appeal.
As the tour came to an end with shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, and Brisbane, Britney graced the stage, sporting a chic short blonde wig, perfectly complementing her trademark sassy outfits.
Rocking it out: The tour reached its grand finale as Britney spiced up her outfits for the closing shows in Melbourne and Adelaide. It has been quite a journey as Britney has performed a phenomenal 97 shows since the tour kickstarted in March. This tour marks her return to the stage after a hiatus since 2004.
Just yesterday, upon her arrival at Los Angeles airport, the pop icon was spotted carrying a pillow adorned with the Australian flag. Opting for a more casual look, Britney sported a long-sleeve T-shirt, jeans, and stylish black boots. The sight of her triggered a frenzy among her devoted fans and eager photographers.
However, as the tour reached its Australian leg, Britney faced heavy criticism from both fans and local media. Many claimed that she relied heavily on lip-syncing during her performances, sparking disappointment and debate among concert-goers.
Performance Time: During the grand finale performances, the vocalist sported a splendid wig and stunning corsets embellished with precious gems, immersing herself into the role of the mesmerizing circus leader.
Controversy surrounded Britney as she faced criticism for allegedly lip-synching during her Australian tour. Despite the backlash, hordes of fans still flocked to her shows. The 27-year-old expressed feeling hurt by the harsh reviews of her opening performances in Perth, Western Australia. In response, she released a statement clarifying that her main focus was on her fans, rather than appeasing the critics. Although some attendees were reported to be “disgusted” with the show, thousands took to Miss Spears’ personal website and Twitter to celebrate her comeback, praising the Perth performance as “awesome,” “brilliant,” and “amazing.” Tickets for her show were even listed on eBay, starting as low as 55 pence. Surprisingly, top-tier tickets originally valued at £90 were sold for a mere £14.
Britney savors her final moments on stage in Adelaide on Sunday night, bidding farewell to her fans. However, according to Melbourne’s Herald Sun newspaper, some attendees were disappointed by the lackluster performance and left early, even demanding a refund. They had been promised an extraordinary show filled with music, dance, magic, and theatrics, but instead felt cheated and unsatisfied. In the midst of all this, Britney’s ex-husband, Kevin Federline, who had traveled to Australia to assist with their two children, Sean Preston and Jayden James, supposedly cancelled a scheduled radio appearance due to false assumptions about his relationship with Britney.
Heading back: Britney touched down at LAX yesterday, holding tight to a pillow adorned with the Australian flag.
Grins: With a beaming expression, the singer seemed delighted to be back in the United States following an extensive eight-month tour and an impressive 97 shows. According to reports, the dancer decided to cancel his appearance on a television program in Sydney after the broadcaster allegedly distorted his words from their pre-recorded interview. It is claimed that the station misleadingly advertised the show with the tagline: “Listen to his admission that he hasn’t ruled out reuniting with Britney.” In response, the artist’s spokesperson informed the Herald Sun that the headline was completely taken out of context and that Kevin has no intentions of rekindling his relationship with Britney. Frustrated, he exclaimed, “Forget them, I’m not going to participate in their show.”
Anger: Kevin Federline, Britney Spears’ former husband, was seen shopping with his girlfriend Victoria Prince in Sydney. Unfortunately, he had to cancel a radio appearance, causing some frustration. Meanwhile, Britney Spears has successfully concluded her world tour and is now heading home, leaving behind any controversy from her concerts.
