Britney Spears to Headline Brighton and Hove Pride, Crashes Ticket Site

Britney Spears isn’t slowing down. After completing her “Piece of Me”Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood, she took the performance to Times Square for a New Year’s Eve spectacular.

Now, she’s taking the show abroad. This summer, she kicks off the European leg of her tour. From the UK to Germany to Denmark, she’s bringing her Britney magic to the world. But her first stop is a visit to the queers, showing some love to her loyal fan base.

On August 4, she’ll headline Brighton and Hove Pride, one of the largest Pride celebrations in the UK.

“I’m so excited to be kicking off my UK tour this summer at Brighton Pride,” Spears said in a statement. “I guarantee it’s going to be a night to remember and can’t wait to sing and dance with all of my LGBTQ fans.”

And her fans can’t wait to celebrate Pride with one of their icons. Twitter has been rampant with excitement over her upcoming performance.

The gay British masses have taken to more than just Twitter to express their pride for Britney. The ticket sales website temporarily crashed after the announcement was met with an underestimated enthusiasm.

“Obviously with an artist of Britney’s popularity, and 56 million Twitter followers, there was always going to be a high demand for tickets,” a spokesperson told Gay Star News. “Our tech team are currently monitoring the servers and doing everything they can to keep them online but the sheer volume of database requests is overwhelming at times. Our advice would be just to be patient and keep trying.”

Advance tickets start at £21 ($29.40), but tickets won’t last for long if Spears’ loyal queer fans have anything to say about it.
