Britney Spears is taking her big-time Circus tour to Dublin for two shows this summer.
Final negotiations are under way to bring the notorious American pop princess to the RDS, a major venue in Dublin, and Irish fans are sure to scrape up tickets faster than you can say “Womanizer.”
The name “Britney” is rarely missing from the headlines. Her controversial personal life is faithfully spread across tabloid covers around the world daily. From the star’s public meltdown to her custody struggle for her two sons, the world has had a ringside seat to more than just her concerts.
But her antics aren’t affecting her worldwide appeal when it comes to her music.
The megastar’s 49-show U.S. comeback tour, which kicked off in New Orleans in March, is a huge success back in the States. The pop star has been met with standing ovations at many of her glitzy, large-scale song-and-dance performances.
The singer has already booked nine shows in June in Britain, and Ireland is a natural fit as the next stop on her tour.
Spears has performed to sell-out crowds at Dublin’s RDS before, and Irish fans have been appealing to Britney on her Web site for their pop idol to return. “Britney plz come to ireland ive watched the tour on youtube and it looks amazing,” one Dublin fan begs. “Come to …Dublin plz plz plz.”
Tickets for a Britney show start at £49 ($73) in London. And if you’re a hardcore Britney fan looking to splurge, two VIP passes, including a backstage tour and “ringside seats,” will cost you a whopping £1,300 ($1,937).
But hey, it may be worth it to the true fan, because who knows when the pop star will have her life together enough to tour again?
