Britney Spears - The Circus

After one extremely bad review of this show, Australia was up in arms about lip synching... I was honestly surprised that anyone who had a ticket to this show wouldn't know that Britney doesn't sing live... I bought my Mum a ticket for her birthday and in part to say thanks for looking after Marley all of the time... Not a big fan, but have enjoyed her latest album...

Rod Laver arena was full of young women, I felt old at the ripe old age of 31... Seating around the three ring circus was great, no matter where you were you could see the stage... The show started with side acts, circus side acts, complete with clowns, little people and an amputee... It was definitely amazing, and this was before we were graced with her presence... She came out and did what she was supposed to do, she danced around, her dancers were amazing, the costumes and choreography were great, the pyrotechnics were brilliant... We heard all of her songs worth hearing... I loved the 'everybodys looking for something' segueway, hotness!!! The few things that didn't impress me 100% was that she was cold, I imagine she didn't want to go on stage after that review, but she had to, and it felt like that... The lack of talk to the audience, we got something like 'Its great to be in Melbourne' she had more to say about Melbourne on her twitter that day... And lastly I think her heels were too high to pull off her moves convincingly... I had seen rehearsals in the studio for this and her fluidity when she was dancing was much better... Otherwise I truly feel like we got our moneys worth...
