“She’s dancing! She’s really dancing!”
“I’m going to go tell her I can’t see. I’m not letting her ruin it.” *steps over seats and tells a girl to put her camera down*
A girl sitting in front of us had her camera up the entire beginning of the show and it was blocking the view a little bit. Britney had just finished performing Everytime and emerged from behind her dancers dressed as a goth to perform a completely unexpected and bonkers goth medley of “…Baby One More Time”/”Oops!…I Did It Again.” It was so good, and if someone is blocking your view when you are seeing it, it is your right as an American to ask them to kindly put their camera down.
*As “Freakshow” plays* “Is this off her new album?”
OH MY GOSH ARE YOU SERIOUS HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT YOU CAME TO OPENING NIGHT OF “BRITNEY: PIECE OF ME” AND YOU DON’T KNOW EVERY SONG SHE’S EVER DONE? *takes deep breath* OK, so I overheard this during “Freakshow” which is actually from Blackout. It was one of only two songs used during the show that wasn’t released as a single. The other was “Get Naked (I Got A Plan),” also from Blackout. If you come to opening night, you should be well-versed in Britney’s deep cuts.
“I’m going to cry.”
Same. Britney’s slowed-down version of “Lucky” was actually really emotional. When she released it in 2000, it was just a fun song about a fictional actress who had everything she could ever want, but still wasn’t happy. In hindsight, “Lucky” was prophetic. There was something really touching about watching her perform it after all she’s been through. Bravo, Britney.
During “Toxic,” there’s a part where Britney jumps off a tree. If you watched the E! special, I Am Britney Jean, you’ll know there was some concern during rehearsals that if the tree didn’t rotate fast enough, she’d hit it after coming back on her bungee cords. Luckily for all of us, the tree rotated fast enough and Britney didn’t bonk herself.
Britney changed into a new outfit for Freakshow on the 2nd night!
No more badly, painted-on abs!
Also apparently something went wrong on the opening night with the Work Bitch sphere and it took too long to reach the stage. It worked fine on the second night and Brit did the full performance:
CNN did a report on Vegas and it's amazing, reminding you why Britney will always be Godney
Finally during Circus, Brit's outfit almost came completely undone but she handled it like a pro!
