The media circus surrounding Britney Spears’ first ever tour of Australia is in full swing, with many media outlets savaging the performer’s first Australian concert in Perth. News.com websites along with The Australian website were reporting that many fans had left the concert in disgust, some within a few songs of the concert beginning.
Britney’s Australian publicists have tonight issued this statement about the reports;
“Burswood Entertainment Complex is proud to host the Britney Spears ‘Circus’ concert tour in Burswood Dome.
Last night’s concert (Friday) saw record crowds turn out for her first performance in Perth and from Burswood’s perspective the event was a huge success. Early media reports that hundreds of fans left the concert early cannot be substantiated and Burswood has received no complaints about the concert.”
They also cite hundreds of excitable fan posts from Britney’s official website, her Twitter page and other Britney-related sites, all praising Britney’s first Australian show.
The performer’s second Perth show is due to get underway within a few hours. She next heads for Melbourne.
