So last Wednesday I went and saw the one and only Britney Spears while I was in Vegas because why wouldn’t I? I mean I grew up on her music, loved her, and tickets were only 75 dollars which wasn’t bad. When I got there I found out I was only about fifteen or so rows from the stage, so I couldn’t complain about that one!
Also if you don’t want to know her set list I would recommend not reading any further.
Just to set the scene once you walk in past security you walk into a large lobby area with two different spots where you can buy your merchandize, but there is a little bit more to this lobby. Through out the lobby there are different items of clothing that Britney had worn through out her career. The one that caught my eye was of course the jacket from the Circus music video, all I can say is that home girl has a really tiny waist, i was thoroughly surprised by that.
Once I was seated and the show had started, she opened up with the one and only “Work Bitch” which quickly turned into “Womanizer” and then she ended her quick three songs with “3” you know the song about the threesome? Yeah that was just the quick opening that got everyone to their feet, and she could do a quick costume change. At this point I was so completely overwhelmed I needed to take a moment to breathe. I mean I was witnessing an absolute national treasure up on stage just dancing and lip syncing all over the place. Yes, surprise Britney lip syncs, yes I hope you read that as sarcastically as I meant it to be read.
When the first few cords of “Everytime” started to play I knew that it was going to be good, then it got better because home girl flew over the audience! Yup, she was in a white dress and flew around the stage like a damn angel! Still love that song since it is about Justin though, can’t go wrong with that. After she got all unhooked she was in a tight black dress singing easily her two biggest hits “Baby One More Time” and “Oops, I Did It Again” one right after the other again bringing the crowd to their feet to sing and dance.
Alright then she came out to sing my absolute favorite song by her which is “Me Against The Music” and she just killed it, she danced on a wall like she did in the music video, can’t go wrong with any of that!
Here is the rest of the set list because the acts are all amazing but it is just too much to talk about, I will ramble for days if I keep on going.

I highly recommend you go and see it, or watch it on YouTube because she still has it. So what if she doesn’t sing, so what if she isn’t as good of a dancer as she once was. I promise you that it is easily one of the most fun you will ever have at a show. Who doesn’t love to scream sing songs from their childhood and go as wild as humanly possible?!
BRITNEY FOR PRESIDENT!!!
