Okay. It’s time to officially confirm what I’ve known for a while…
Britney Spears is going on tour in 2011.
According to an Investor’s Report posted on LiveNation (see: Quarterly/Financial Reports, Supplemental Operational and Financial Information under Q4):
At this point, the company expects over 75% of its key Front Line artists to be active and touring during 2011, compared to under 50% of those artists actively touring last year.
Major tours are currently expected from, among others, The Eagles, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Neil Diamond, the cast of â€œGlee,â€ Journey, Kid Rock, Kings Of Leon, Britney Spears and Sugarland.
This has been confirmed to me by several sources over the past few weeks, but I was waiting on something more concrete (and public) before posting for sure.
Expect a formal announcement in the coming weeks.
2011: Year of the Spears.
