Britney Spears Announces Her ‘Piece Of Me World Tour:’ See The Dates
Britney Spears is hitting the road for a world tour this summer. The pop princess performed the final date of her Las Vegas residency January 31. She celebrated the end of the era with a pair of performances on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, but it turns out she is not done with the show just yet. This morning (January 23), she announced she was traveling across North America, Europe and the UK for another round of Piece Of Me shows.
“I can’t tell you how much I miss performing the #PieceOfMe show,” Britney wrote alongside an Instagram post she shared this morning. Shortly after that she followed up with the big news. “I’m so excited to announce that we’re bringing the #PieceOfMe tour to select cities in North America, Europe and the UK! See you guys this summer,” she wrote alongside footage of her last “Toxic” performance.
The Piece Of Me World Tour kicks off with a show in Washington, D.C. on July 12. She will perform a string of shows across the east coast before wrapping up her North American leg with a show in Florida on July 29. The European leg will start with a performance at Brighton Pride on August 4 and will include a headlining set at Smukfest Festival in Denmark.
Rumors of a new world tour have been building for weeks now, and it is nice to have official confirmation. Although Britney has performed the reimagined rendition of Piece Of Me for the last two years, this offers fans who have not been able to travel to Las Vegas an opportunity to see her live. With any luck, she will also make some minor updates to the setlist to keep things fresh.
Fans are speculating that Brit will promote the upcoming show with a commercial during the Super Bowl, and there is hope a new album is in the works as well. These are lofty ambitions, but the superstar is gearing up to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of “Baby One More Time” this winter. With any luck she has something big planned.
