What songs will Britney Spears play in concert?
Spears barely has room to breathe in her current Las Vegas setlist and through her highly choreographed set. Given the high quantity of chart-topping smash hits she’s amassed, she has little room for deploying deep album cuts. This makes a typical Britney Spears set very consistent, if not predictable.
Her sets are almost identical because of the highly choreographed and theatric structure of the show. She opens every show with her lead single from her last album, Britney Jean, called “Work B**ch” and quickly moves into a trio of lead singles including 2008’s “Womanizer” and 2011’s “3” drawn from Femme Fatale.
Britney Spears takes a detour into the deep past with the back-to-back arrangement of “Baby One More Time” and “Oops…I Did It Again.” These are the two tracks which put her on the map and illicit the biggest crowd reaction.
Spears closes every show with her 2011 pop adventure, “Till the World Ends.” It is an odd choice, given the deep catalog of show stoppers and epic closers she has in her arsenal. But it is an appropriate track lyrically.
The following is a great example of what you can expect from the Britney Spears Piece of Me Las Vegas concert series.
…Baby One More Time
Oops…I Did It Again
Me Against the Music
Break the Ice
Piece of Me
Scream & Shout
Get Naked (I Got a Plan)
I’m a Slave 4 U
I Wanna Go
(You Drive Me) Crazy
Till the World Ends
How long is a Britney Spears concert?
The specific design and structure of the show keeps things moving along at a decent pace. Every little aspect of Spears live show is intentional, so she barely takes time to talk to the audience or extend tracks into a prolonged ‘jam.’ With that said, shows always end up at a swift 90-100 minutes in length. If you are bringing young children along, or you have a teen with a curfew, the sets end at a reasonable hour.
What should I expect in the stage design?
Britney Spears has always been exquisite with her stage presence and its design. Glitter will captivate audiences and get in your hair after shooting out of giant tubes. Dancers grace the stage on every song, and a highly choreographed set places different people on stage at different times and in different consumes. A Britney Spears show is just as close to a play, in many ways, as a big arena concert.
Who is Britney Spears publicist and press contact?
Considering the huge popularity (let alone years of media controversy), Britney Spears has built up a team of individuals which work around her. This includes her manager Jeff Kwatinetz, and her agents Jason Trawick and Theresa Peters. You may have the best luck contacting her publicist and media contact, Leslie Sloane Zelink. She can be contacted by calling (212) 901-3928 or via email through her firm’s website. She works direct through the Michael Chiklis Media Company.
How do I get access to presale tickets for Britney Spears’s tour?
Britney Spears and her marketing took an interesting angle for this latest 2014 tour, Piece of Me. Those who ordered a copy of the record from her official website earned a password to get presale tickets for a specific show. Each code allows for a purchase of up to four tickets days before the public onsale. Considering the popularity of this latest tour, this could be your only opportunity to get a great seat.
But not all is lost for people still itching for some options. American Express card holders can get a few remaining tickets through the TicketMaster platform. Not all dates are included, and you have an American Express card to take advantage of these offers.
“If you’re a pop idolator, going to a Britney Spears concert is like making a pilgrimage to the mother land. Brit (along with tour opener Nicki Minaj) brought her Femme Fatale tour to LA’s Staples Center last night, and Spears’ two-hour set was jam-packed with musical goodies: the girl had so many hits to get through, many times she had to coast through a song’s opening verse and a chorus so she could move on to the next number.” – Becky Bain of Idolator
“The theme of the show was that everyone wants Ms. Spears, leaving her constantly under pursuit: by a club-wielding SWAT team, tabloid photographers, smitten men and a stalker shown in video interludes vowing revenge against seductive, powerful women. She was costumed as Cleopatra and a trench-coated secret agent when she wasn’t revealing her tummy.” – Jon Pareles of the New York Times
“Britney Spears Femme Fatale set started with a bang. Huge video screens showed high definition clips of Britney breaking out of prison and being chased by cops. The production values of the clips were top notch and it built to a grand entrance by Britney who flew in on a platform (one of many times she’d be flown, wheeled, carted and pushed around the stage). This level of high octane staging and lighting would continue the entire set.” – Geoff Kleinman of On Portland Entertainment
