Revised Britney Spears Cdn. tour infoCanadian Summer Tour Dates
By RICHARD JOHN
With all the publicity this week surrounding Nestle pulling out of the upcoming Britney Spears tour, it must come as a relief to the 17 year old pop star to finally get a solid itinerary together.
The tour, announced through online service Pollstar, starts Monday, 28 June in Pompano Beach, Florida and runs the length of the summer.
The last of the 47 North American dates is the Allentown Fair in Allentown, Pennsylvania on Sunday, 5 September.
Canadian fans of the teen sensation won't have to worry about failing currencies keeping their idol from playing here. Spears has lined up no less than eight Canadian dates.
The Great White North leg of the tour stars 13 July and runs until the 25th.
However, the promoter of Spears' Canadian dates, Universal Concerts Canada, says at least two of the shows on the Pollstar itinerary are incorrect. Universal is working on a Toronto concert on July 14 at the Molson Amphitheatre and a July 17 stop at the Corel Centre in Kanata, Ont., just outside Ottawa. Neither of those dates has been finalized.
The Pollstar information lists a total of eight Canadian dates; JAM! has decided to remove the other six Canadian dates from our story and concert listings until they can be confirmed.
At the venues, watch for blatant advertising from Tommy Hilfiger and maybe Kelloggs, but don't expect to sate your hunger on any Nestle products.
