Britney Spears Takes Show to Orlando
Despite a music glitch, the pop star performs for a sold-out crowd at the House of Blues
Britney Spears performed her fifth live show Saturday night in Orlando – this time dealing with a few minor technical difficulties.
Spears performed a 14-minute set before a sold-out crowd at the House of Blues Orlando in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., Saturday night. And it was another highly-anticipated show: Fans waited for hours outside in a line that wrapped around the building to see the pop star.
With the crowd chanting “Britney! Britney! Britney,” a blonde Spears, clad in a hot-pink bustier top, a pleated white micro-mini and torn fishnet stockings, took the stage with her backup dancers at 9:31 p.m. to the music of “…Baby One More Time.”
Like the series of concerts she performed at other House of Blues clubs in Southern California and Las Vegas, Spears proceeded to lip-synch a medley of older hits – but this time she experience a glitch: at one point the background track skipped, forcing Spears to improvise by turning her head away from the audience as the song got back on track.
Despite the music mishap, Spears was in good spirits throughout her performance, making eye contact with several audience members and smiling as she responded to audience members yelling out her name.
After wrapping up her set with a short version of “Toxic,” the pop star came toward the edge of the stage, adjusted her mic and said, “I love you, Orlando. Thank you so much for being here. You’re awesome. I love you!” Then she blew a kiss and punctuated it with “muah!”
After the show, concertgoers gave the pop star solid reviews. Judy Jensen, 25, told PEOPLE, “If Britney’s going to make a comeback, it’s going to be the best one yet. She looked amazing.” Said another audience member, Maggie Rood, 25, “She looked sexy, definitely not like a baby’s mama.”
Spears is set to perform a second show in Miami Sunday night.
