Article On 'In The Zone' DVD

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

As Britney Spears readies for her tour, she’s making sure there’s plenty of her to go around while fans wait for her to come around. The singer’s about to release a DVD that’ll include pre-tour concert footage as well as bonus tracks.

Two new songs are found on the CD portion of Spears’ “In the Zone” DVD, due March 23. The first is called “Don’t Hang Up,” and it finds the singer pleading on the phone for her lover to keep her satisfied long-distance.

The second song is the P. Diddy-produced “The Answer,” which both artists had talked up before the album’s release (see “Britney Talks New Album But Remains Coy On First Single” and “Britney Raps On New Album, Teaches P. Diddy A Thing Or Two”). In the song, Spears sings that her lover is the answer to all her needs: “Who can hold me tight, keep me warm through the night?/ Who can wipe my tears when it’s wrong, make it right?/ Who can give me love till I’m satisfied?/ Who’s the one I need in my life?”

Video clips of Spears’ first two singles, “Me Against the Music” and “Toxic” (as well as the “Making the Video” episode of the latter), are also featured.

The bulk of the DVD concentrates on the live performances that last year helped tease Spears’ then-upcoming album. Some of those shows were short — such as her two-song set for MTV’s Spankin’ New Music week and the half-hour surprise appearance at club Rain in Las Vegas (see “Britney Romps On Bed, Loses Her Shirt At Surprise Vegas Show”). But her also-included hour-long ABC concert special, “Britney Spears: In the Zone,” offers somewhat of a preview of her upcoming tour.

Shot in New York’s Gotham Hall in October, the show featured stage settings evoking “Cabaret,” and Spears is taking the New York theater motif even further with the Onyx Hotel tour. According to a source close to the production, this tour is “less Vegas” than previous productions, with no stage extended into the audience.

The trek’s “Onyx Hotel” resembles Tommy Tune’s Broadway musical “Grand Hotel,” which portrayed a day in the life of the Berlin Grand Hotel in 1928. Spears has been decked out in 1920s/1930s hairstyles in promotional pictures for the tour and her Showtime concert special, which airs live from the Miami tour stop on March 28 at 9 p.m. ET (tape-delayed on the West Coast). Spears will take the role of hostess of the Onyx Hotel, with her dancers becoming the hotel staffers and audience members finding themselves to be the invited guests.

The tour kicks off March 2 in San Diego and hits 25 North American cities before wrapping up April 12 in New York (see “Britney Spears Lines Up Tour For In The Zone”). Following the North American tour, Spears heads to Europe on April 27, playing England, Scotland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Austria and Ireland. Closing out the European tour, Spears hits the stage at Portugal’s Rock in Rio-Lisbon festival on June 5.
