Femme Fatale Tour – The VERY Loud Edition

This past Saturday I attended the much anticipated Femme Fatale Tour featuring Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj as the opening act at the HP Pavillion in San Jose. I attended just as a fan (it was a graduation present for my sister.) The concert was so good that I just had to write a review about it (my seats were on the upper level so please excuse the less than stellar pictures.)

I didn’t know what to expect, was she going to sing live? dance? addressed the audience? I had so many questions especially because a lot of her critics had panned her when she had the special performance for Good Morning America a few months back at the Bill Graham Auditorium in San Francisco.

Nicki Minaj was the opening act and I was definitely sold with her performance. It was as if she had a mini concert rather than just being an opening act. She sang live for most of the songs, toned it down with the swearing and did not bring a fan on stage for a lap dance like she had done when she opened for Lil Wayne. After her performance was over I had to wait for 45 minutes for Britney Spears to come on stage, let me just tell you that it was worth it!

At exactly 9:18PM Britney opened the show with the song Hold It Against Me – wearing a tight white sequined body suit and exuding confidence and sexiness. It was official, all the haters had no room to talk, Britney was back full force!

Right before the second song, she addressed the eager fans and everyone got loud and were happy to hear Britney Spears actually talk to them. One of the unexpected songs of the night was having her perform Piece Of Me which she had never done besides during her failed “come back” at the MTV awards a few years back. 

During the song Lace And Leather a very lucky fan by the name of Preston got on stage with Britney and was tied up, the crowd went wild and I am sure Preston will never forget that moment. Britney also surprised her fans by singing some of the songs LIVE, she performed a new rendition of If You Seek Amy, Don’t Let Me Be the Last to Know (while being suspended high up on a swing.) She also performed some of her old hits but with a new more mature sound: Baby One More Time, I’m A Slave For You, Toxic among others.

She also brought fans on stage (who had won a contest through local radio stations) to dance with her while she performed her latest single I Wanna Go. Britney addressed the audience more time and the fans were so loud that they even got  "shooshed" by Britney herself.

Britney Spears has proven once again that no matter what kind of personal problems she goes through, she is an incredible performer and despite whatever negative buzz she might get she still GOT IT, dancing, putting on a phenomenal show, selling out tours,you name it! We have Britney Spears for years to come, the princess of pop is not going anywhere! She has officially regained her throne.
