Bonfire Night with Britney Spears!!!
After a few troubled years its brilliant to see Britney back stronger and better than ever. She wore beautiful sparkly costumes throughout, had audience members up on stage with her, was very warm hearted and friendly towards the crowd and danced like a trouper all the time she was on stage. My one complaint is that it just did not last long enough. Britney came on stage at 9pm and the show was over for 10.30pm...gimme more! Having been lucky enough to see Kylie more than once I have to admit that a Kylie concert is much better value for money as she is on stage for at least two hours and sings every word live; whereas Britney only sang a few songs live. In fairness to Britney though, much of her work is dance music and is highly produced in the studio so it would be nigh on impossible to recreate that same sound with purely live vocals... I guess she needs a bit of help from time to time to maintain the sound she is known for.
I had a brilliant night, came away with a big bag of souvenirs including a pink Femme Fatale coffee mug, and I would absolutely go to see Britney again if she returns to my home town. However, I am not convinced that a 90 minute stage presence would be worth a long trip out of town to see her. Still I am thrilled to have seen her perform live on stage and it was a magical evening. It is the one fireworks night that I will never forget!
