Britney Spears Lets Loose Her Femme Fatale Tour Set List
No, Britney Spears will not be going all-acoustic and covering Nina Simone on her Femme Fatale tour with Nicki Minaj, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a few surprises in store. No one should be shocked to learn the jitterbugging pop tart will be singing (or lip syncing, at least) past hits like “Baby One More Time” and “Toxic” along with the majority of her Femme Fatale tunes. However, in addition to a new Madonna cover, a couple of bonus tracks (“Up N’ Down” and “He About To Lose Me”) have been chosen in favor of a number of tracks from the standard edition of the album. Are you as excited as Brit is? See the set list below.
Britney Spears “Femme Fatale” Tour Set List
1. Hold It Against Me 2. Up N’ Down 3. 3 4. Piece of Me 5. Big Fat Bass 6. How I Roll 7. Lace and Leather 8. If U Seek Amy 9. Gimme More 10. (Drop Dead) Beautiful (feat. Sabi) 11. He About To Lose Me 12. Boys (Remix) 13. Don’t Let Me Be The Last To Know 14. Baby One More Time 15. S&M 16. Trouble For Me 17. I’m A Slave 4 U 18. Burning Up (Madonna cover) 19. I Wanna Go 20. Womanizer 21. Toxic 22. Till The World Ends
So which Femme Fatale tracks didn’t make the cut? Currently missing in action: “Criminal,” “Gasoline,” “Trip To Your Heart,” “Inside Out,” and “Seal It With A Kiss.” We’re also a little surprised to see that Britney is taking “S&M” solo as well, considering that it was Rihanna’s track to begin with originally. Now is it too much to hope that Nicki Minaj will take over the rest of the vocals? And sub in for Sabi on “(Drop Dead) Beautiful”? Or at the very least spit some remix rhymes during the “Till The World Ends” encore?
This will also be Britney’s first live performance of “Gimme More” since the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards fiasco. According to Perez Hilton and The Hollywood Reporter, she sings “maybe 40% of the show” live, which is a marked improvement over the 0% we’ve grown accustomed to. Way to get back on the horse, Brit-Brit!
We have to say — after taking a peek at the set list, Britney’s next single sums up our feelings about this tour perfectly.
