Instead of writing just a ‘review’ of the show I went to last night, I thought I would write about the whole day in general too.
We left my house at about 12:30PM and we caught the train to Chester at 1PM. When we arrived at Chester we waited for about 30 minutes and caught the hour long train to Manchester. Once we got there, we were totally lost, the train station was like an Airport! I am used to seeing fields and stuff and this was a really big change of scenery. We found somewhere to eat and walked around for a while. After a bit we got really tired of the crowds and we decided to get a Taxi to the MEN arena about 5:20PM.
We queued outside the arena for around 2 Hours and then they finally opened the doors. I was really worried because there was a sign saying ‘No cameras or recording equiptment allowed. You will be checked and if you refuse this check, you will be removed from the building without refund.’ So as we got closer to the door I realized that they weren’t checking ANYONE which was really cool (but also bad because someone could have taken a gun or anything!)
We got a drink then went to sit down in our seats. After some confusion, we finally got where we were supposed to sit, after the damn usher moved us about 3 times, it turned out we were in the right seats to start with!
At around 7:30PM Wicked Wisdom came on. I have to say that this was the biggest load of noise I’ve ever heard in my life. The sound was too loud, she was screaming and the music was just terrible! She thanked Britney, her ‘doll’ for letting her come on tour with her and then went. She didn’t get a big reponse from the crowd, unlike…
…JC Chasez, the crowd went wild for him! He did ‘Some Girls Dance With Women’, ‘Blowin Me Up’ and another song, and also a coreography part. He also thanked Britney for letting him tour with her and said ‘Thank you for welcoming me into your home’. He then went on to say that this week is really big for him because his debut album was released.
About 9:05PM the curtain dropped and Britney came out. It was amazing. The crowd went wild, and she couldn’t stop smiling! She performed the usual set, Toxic, Overprotected, Boys and Showdown. For Showdown she rolled the sleeves up on her suit so she must have been really hot!
After a costume change she did her Caberet bit, Baby One More Time, Oops I Did it Again and You Drive Me Crazy. The crowd didn’t really know what she was singing and on the radio after the show they were saying that she should have sung the original versions.
Then we saw the piano being pushed on stage and Britney performed an AMAZING version of Everytime LIVE. In my opinion, this version was MUCH better than the Showtime Special one. Well done Britney! Everyone loved it!
Then she did The Hook Up and I’m A Slave 4 U. The audience went wild (once again) for The Hook Up, which surprised me. I Love The Hook Up but I didn’t think it would get such a good response from the audience!
After Slave 4 u came the interlude. The camp Hotel Manager came into the audience and asked a lady if she was having a good time. He then asked if she wanted to say anything to Britney, she replied “Can I come backstage” and he goes “Better luck next time dear”, lol.
The show started again with Shadow. This wasn’t live, which was dissapointing, but seeing her in the air in that dress was amazing! She had her hair tied back in this one.
Then the dancers came out looking ‘naked’ and did some acrobatics. Britney came on and performed Touch Of My Hand. I don’t really think the audience got what she meant by the performance but anyway..its was a great performance and she wore her hair tied back for this one too.
Next came the very controversial performance, Breathe On Me. At the start when Britney and Leo roll around on the bed, they almost fell off. It was funny but I’m glad they never fell! During the kiss lots of people cheered (see my video below) but I heard someone say behind me ‘this is a discrace’. Straight after came Outrageous. Another great performance but the second verse was cut.
Then came I’ve Got That Boom Boom. This was a good performance and Britney looked great. It’s obvious that she’s been doing a lot of sun bathing recently.
She then thanked the audience and came out with a video camera to film the audience for her new reality tour show which will air this summer. She did her ‘I don’t wanna go bit’ and then ran off stage.
This part was a shame because lots of people left after this not knowing that Me Against The Music would be an encore. Although they were stupid to leave seen as the band was still playing and the lights were still down.
Me Against The Music was great, everyone loved this, especially when the remixed part started. This was fun to sing along to except my glow stick flew off and hit this man on the head LOL.
After it had finished, the lights came back on and everyone got up. I couldn’t believe it was over. I’d waited 5 years for last night to come and now its over. But I will definately be going to see her again!!
These were on every seat at the show last night in Manchester. The DVD is out in the UK tomorrow so make sure you go and buy it!

Hey everyone, I’m so tired right now! I just wanna say, that the show was AMAZING! If you don’t have tickets I advise you to get some. I will post the short video clips I got tomorrow but for now I’ll give you some things that happened. During ‘Breathe On Me’ Britney and Leo almost fell off the bed, it was kinda funny lol. And also, Britney was filming for her REALITY TOUR SHOW. After I’ve Got That Boom Boom she came on stage with a video camera, maybe I’ll be in the show cus she was pointing it right at me and my glow stick 😀
Anyway, what a great night! Videos and full review coming tomorrow 😀
