Britney Spears Concert Review
Oops!... I Did It Again Tour
Concert Date: August 12, 2000
OK, I admit pop music isn't my bag baby, but after Britney blew the roof off GM Place, my opinion of the pop princess has changed. I ended my Christina review with "Look out Britney this girl can sing!" But Miss Aguilera, Britney's performance packed a wicked punch leaving people buzzing for days!
The show featured video images of a bald virtual Britney being sucked through a portal inviting you to enjoy "The Britney Spears Experience". Even before Brit's spaceship came floating down from the darkness during Crazy, the crowd was pumped, a thousand glow sticks wildly fluttered like a swarm of fire flies.
Britney's in-your-face dance moves were rocked by massive explosions as she flung her arms in different directions. The stage automatically changed design for each song, for example, during Lucky it changed to a bedroom. That wasn't the only thing changing as Britney sported a hot new costume just about every song. My highlights included a fan who met Britney, an elaborate Asian costume that fanned out over the entire stage as Britney shot to the ceiling during a Beat Goes On, the explosive finale of ...Baby One More Time and of course Oops!... Did it Again.
I think Britney got as much from us as we got from her, graciously saying "you guyz are an awesome audience and I know I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you". Her delivery was so sincere and it appeared she got a little choked up about her first world tour. If you get the chance to catch Britney's tour make sure you do 'cuz I guarantee it's one of the best excitement packed performances you'll ever see!
