Post Britney Spears Sparkles at Femme Fatale Tour's Los Angeles Stop   Tue Jul 26, 2011 4:25 pm



Britney Spears brought her Femme Fatale tour to
Los Angeles' Staples Center last night (June 20), where the packed crowd
heard a plethora of hits from the singer's decade-plus career. Among
the tunes included in the evening were all five of her Billboard Hot 100
No. 1 hits: "...Baby One More Time," "Womanizer," "3," "Hold It Against
Me" and her Rihanna remix duet "S&M."

Spears opened the
evening with her Hot 100 No. 1, "Hold It Against Me," and then
surprisingly segued into the new "Femme Fatale" U.S. bonus track "Up n'
Down."

All told, Spears blazed through a 22-song set (four of
those were blended into two separate medleys) that was contained within
distinct Femme Fatale-inspired acts. A highlight was the bright and
colorful segment that kicked off with the new "Femme" album track "Big
Fat Bass." Spears seemed especially engaged with the audience and her
dancers, smiling and playful whilst prancing about the stage. Her
giddiness was amplified for "How I Roll," when she was rolled out into
the center of the audience on a tricked-out, Mini Cooper-like car.

Throughout
the evening, the diva was aided by an armada of impossibly athletic and
acrobatic dancers. During "He About to Lose Me," Spears was surrounded
by four especially daring male dancers, who did their best death-defying
Olympian gymnast poses from atop cage-like contraptions high in the
air. Their handstands and Cirque du Soleil-esque contortions drew gasps
from the impressed crowd.

Fans went nuts after Spears recreated
much of her original choreography -- including her memorable slide to
the floor and the arms-in-the-air flings -- for a sensual "I'm a Slave 4
U," which was followed by a cover of Madonna's classic 1983 single
"Burning Up." The crowd also reacted positively to "Boys," but for
possibly a different reason: if you stitched together the fabric that
Spears and her dancers were wearing for the slinky number, it might have
made a scarf.

"Boys" was followed by the ballad "Don't Let Me Be
the Last to Know," which may have been the one song of the night that
Spears sang completely live. (Though it was hard to tell whether she was
singing along to pre-taped "live" vocals.) Most of the show, as
expected, seemed to be lip-synced. Occasionally, especially in the early
portion of the night, what sounded like live ad-libs from Spears could
be heard.

Some aspects of the show were reminiscent of previous
tours by Spears' fellow mega-divas: Madonna and Kylie Minogue. Spears'
Japanese anime-esque rendition of "Toxic," complete with battling
dancers, brought to mind Madonna's "Sky Fits Heaven" performance from
2001's Drowned World Tour. Additionally, Spears' "(Drop Dead) Beautiful"
came with pulse-racing projection imagery of beefcake models that
echoed Minogue's "Red Blooded Woman" from her 2005 Showgirl trek.

In
the final stretch of the show, the simple staging of her latest single,
"I Wanna Go," brought the house down. From the floor to the rafters,
the audience jumped up and down along with Spears onstage. Next up was
the main-set closer "Womanizer," which seemed a bit flat after the
crowd-wowing "I Wanna Go."

Spears' most recent Hot 100 top 10
single, the stomping "Till the World Ends," closed out the night. Nicki
Minaj rose from the stage midway through the number to supply her "Femme
Fatale Remix" rap before Spears herself ascended to the top of an
elaborate multi-story set piece. The song came to a roaring end with an
angel-winged Spears flying over the audience, while a brilliant curtain
of sparking pyro rained down on the stage behind her.


The
Femme Fatale Tour, with Nicki Minaj, Jessie and the Toy Boys and Nervo,
next hits Glendale, Ariz. on June 22 and then Anaheim, Calif. on June
24.
