Britney Spears kicked off her "Circus Tour" her first in five years Tuesday night in her home state of Louisiana at the New Orleans Arena before a nearly sold-out crowd.
Dressed as a sexy ringmaster, she gyrated and pranced on stage during the the 16-song show that lasted nearly two hours.
She kicked things off with the title track to her latest album, Circus, and then sang “Piece of Me,” which she performed in a cage — just one of the many elaborate stage backdrops.
Acrobats twirled from suspended fabric as a toned Spears sang and danced.
She also sported a blindfold — and got saucy with two male dancers — as she sang “Touch of My Hand.”
The show slowed down in the middle when she belted out the ballad, “Everytime,” as the audience sang along.
Even though Spears didn’t interact much with the audience (and appeared to be lip-synching at times), fans went wild as she performed hits like “Womanizer” (in a cop costume) and her classic “Baby One More Time.”
At the end of the show, she told the crowd, “Thank you, New Orleans.”
