While I am not a fan of Britney Spears, I am very happy that she has rebounded from tabloid fodder to being able to dance again. I attended the opening night of her 3-night stand at New York’s Madison Square Garden. She pulled out all the hits for this sold out show. Unfortunately, she didn’t do much singing – in fact, the only time she used her microphone at all was to welcome the crowd, to sing one song while seated and to count to 10 while she made her dancers do push-ups. At least for the majority of the show, she didn’t even bother holding a microphone, so at least she wasn’t trying to fool anyone. In that sense, without the use of microphones, the Circus Tour is eco-friendly. With that aside, she danced her butt off and the crowd, which consisted primarily of teeny-bopper girls and gay men, went wild during every song.
