Britney Spears

The princess of pop has sent Belfast fans into euphoria by announcing that she will be performing in the city during her “Femme Fatale” world tour at the Odyssey Arena on October 25, after years of absence.

So far the “Toxic” singer has slated just one show for Belfast following a period of seven years of nonattendance to the city, making her Northern Ireland fans ecstatic.

"I like that she announced Belfast as her first venue in the UK, it's so good for the city, especially with the MTV Europe Music Awards coming up, it's just so exciting," fan Kayleigh Stevenson said.
It is expected that the singer will announce further UK dates in the coming weeks, however for the moment her only UK performance will be in Belfast, the night after she plays Dublin's O2 Arena on October 24.

Britney's last tour, Circus, in 2008 grossed $120 million and she played in London, Dublin and Manchester. BBC reported that Britney said: "I can't wait to come back to the UK and perform for my fans there, it's been too long!"

The show will comprise of 21 of her smash hit songs and two surprise songs. She will be in The O2 in Dublin on October 24 2011 and then up to The Odyssey Arena in Belfast on October 25.
