Woot!! First we learn that Britney is really dating her hottie agent Jason Trawick and now we learn that she is coming back to the US to tour one more time around. Things are going very well for our dear Britney these days. I’m not sure if I’ll need to see the show again (after all, I did see it 3 times the first time around) but I’ll wait until we hear more about this second North American leg of the tour to make a determination. I’m curious to find out who will be opening up for her on this second leg and I’m really hoping she’ll change up the setlist a little bit. My gut tells me the show will not change that much so … I might take a pass. But, for those of you who missed seeing the show before — you now have another chance to see it. It’s deffo worth seeing … I loved the show! I think you will, too.

    Ughhh why do artists go to Tulsa? People (including brit) should go to the Ford Center instead.
    OKC is the place to be!

  • Jadedkitten

    Omg I’m seeing this again and u might want to go see it again Trent…….

    “The Circus is coming back to the states and I’ve made some really hot changes. Check out for the new dates.-Britney

  • Mr. Gyllenhaal


  • Ally

    Ok, I think Britney is doing great and I’m happy for her, but the woman had a meltdown like two years ago. Can we please give her a break for a little while???

  • Jenna

    woohoo!!! Yay Tulsa! I’m perhaps going to have to make it to that one!!

  • Devin

    I definitely want to see the show again! I had amazing ringside seats last time, so I’ll probably just get regular seating this time. Apparently she’s adding a new song or so and changing up some stuff :)

  • Alex

    @ Mr. Gyllenhaal I KNOW!!! i live in scottsdale and there’s no AZ tour dates WTF :( :(

  • kittkatt

    While I think it’s wonderful that Britney is doing so well, how much money does her father really need. Ever since the courts left him in charge of her life he’s been running the poor girl ragged. I just hope that all the constant traveling and work doesn’t cause her a (mental or emotional)set-back in all the progress she’s made so far.

  • Kendra

    I missed her shows last time around so hopefully I’ll get some tix to the Staples Center! I DO wish she’d take a little time off for herself, though..I guess after this last leg she can take a few months off with her man!!

  • Jadedkitten

    When are ppl going to realize that Jamie has to REPORT EVERY CENT HE SPENDS TO THE COURT and if she wasn’t paying him she would be paying someone else more to be her conservator.

  • Jessica

    Ugh..I spent lots of money getting to Toronto for her show and now she’s coming to hamilton! Major poop sandwich.
    Does anyone know who is opening for her?


    I am so annoyed that she’s playing in LA! Why there? Why not San Diego or something else? I mean, she’s done two shows there and yet she wants to do a third one? Absolutely ridiculous. There’s no way I’m going to drive 10 hours out of my way to LA to see her and I doubt she’ll change anything major but I did enjoy myself when I did go back in April. Congrats, Brit!

  • Emily

    Aaaah! I’m thrilled she’s playing again. I bought my tickets in December and saw her April 16th in LA. This time around, I can’t go. :( I’m sooo bummed. I got laid off on Monday from my teaching job. I simply don’t have the money. :[[[[[

  • Lana

    @ Chase – I agree with you! She should play San Diego. I already drove up to Anaheim to see her, and I don’t know if I care to drive up to LA for a show I have already seen. I think I am just going to wait until the next album and use that money for a different artist.

  • Elle O. Elle

    @K, I wish she would play the Ford Center, I work down the street from BOK, traffic is gonna be INSANE.

    Speaking of OKC venues, does anyone still play the Myriad, or whatever it’s called now? I saw the Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters there ten years ago, but the Ford Center opened across the street at some point and it seems like everyone plays there now.

  • meaghan

    wow way to skimp out on the stops in canada! what’s up with that??

  • I can’t believe you went 3 times! Last time I went to the Oakland show, and it was AMAZING! I’m planning to go to Vegas this time and buy some front row seats. You should still go once more, Trent! And make it Las Vegas! LOL

  • Kelli

    I went to see this show last time it came around and it was amazing! I want to know how to get those big circus like ringside seats? Or even in the standing room?

  • JessicaGiovanna

    I don’t think she has a say as to where these shows take place. So anyone who has seen these shows, is it really like she’s not into it when she’s performing? Does it look like she’s just basically going through the motions?

  • Jon

    Why is she going back to some of the same area. I’m not a huge fan but my partner loves her. We could drive the 4 hours to ATL to see her but we just bought a house and don’t have the extra money like we did last year to spend on the trip and hotel and everything needed. Why couldn’t she come to TN or some where within 2 hours drive. We both enjoy the crowds in ATL we went to see Dolly (two times), Tina, Janet and NKOTB in 2008 at Different venues in ATLANTA and had some of the best times we have ever had at concert. Maybe I will just break down buy him tickets for our 6 year anniversary.

  • canuckistani

    This makes me wonder just how much money she lost to Adnan and Sam. If she’s busting her ass on this long tour, she must be trying to make up for what she lost while she was out to lunch.
