It's Britney

Friday night I went to see Britney Spears perform her final night in Sydney with my sister-in-lawHelen

This tour is the first time she has come to Australia, but after all the bad press I think she may not ever come back! So I consider this a once off to see someone who puts on a fun big show!

She only sang one song live - Everytime - but really, since we knew that going in I was fine with it. I think it would have been better if she had sung OVER the tracks like most pop artists do (it did sound quite obvious that they were playing studio tracks....) but at the end of the day it was what we expected and it was fun!

It was a big show with lots to see and an AMAZING stage. The dancers were fab, the costumes were great, and I loved some of the remixes of her old stuff.

All in all a very fun night:)

Sunday Steve & Selina & the girls came over. It was 42c degrees (114f)!!!! It felt like walking in a hair dryer - there wasn't even a cool ocean breeze but a HOT one! It only got cool when we got RIGHT down by the water, and the water was chilly - nice & refreshing. So of course we had to go get some ice cream. Unfortunately though, Ben & Jerry's has NOT designed their store well for lots of ice cream lovers. We gave up after waiting awhile in this queue (it snaked around inside the store too). My Copenhagen strawberry ice cream was yummy anyhow!

  1. If you gave up, how did you get the ice cream? I'm confused.
    Why was there bad press about Britney? I'm glad you set your expectations at the right level for her singing - that would have definitely made it easier to enjoy. I'd have loved to have seen the costumes!

  2. There is 5 ice cream places in Manly! So we just went to another one with a shorter line:)

    She was getting bad press for lip synching - but duh - everyone knew she was - I remember that being in the press when she first starting doing this world tour!! Didn't bother me - it was still a GREAT show! I especially loved the Bollywood mixes & Britney's sari outfit was gorgeous!
