I almost didn't go to her recent concert because my Britney Spears concert buddy, Tracey, would be out of town when she was here performing. Then Groupon had tickets for half off, only $25/each, so I went ahead and bought tickets before inviting my friend Ashley, who deserves a break after recently having twins! Luckily, she has a wonderful husband and was able to come.
We stopped at Staples first to get their last day of penny sale items, ate dinner downtown, and still arrived with enough time to get some freebies from the local radio stations and buy a concert shirt. These events were much more exciting than the "main event."
We ran into our coworker, Justin!

Since I purchase our seats on sale, I knew they wouldn't be fabulous. We were on the next from the top row, but could still see the stage pretty well.
Notice everyone SITTING!?!
I was slightly disappointed by the concert. I thought maybe it was just an off night, or that we didn't have great seats, so when I got home I googled reviews. The majority reflected what I was thinking:
Britney just didn't seem like herself. She spent the majority of the concert sitting on some type of prop, walking the stage, posing, or tossing her hair. I go to her concert knowing she will be lip-synching throughout because she is performing, but if she doesn't even do that, then what is the point? Even worse, she slowed the tempo of the majority of her dance hits, making them awkward to sing along or dance to. By the middle of the concert our entire section and the ones around us were sitting.
