The last time Britney Spears played Dublin, it was 2011 and it was not her best outing. As a megafan I can lay my hands on and admit that. It was not her best achievement. Her latest piece of me-tour, an adaptation of her residency in Las Vegas, sees Spears the best she has been in years.
Despite the release of 2016 & # 39; s Glory, Piece of Me is a deep dive into the favorite songs of Spears and her fans. Throw out Breathe on me and Touch of my Hand, album tracks from 2003 & # 39; s In the areaand place them next to huge singles like Skirts hunter and I am a slave 4 UThis is essentially a tour for fans, rather than a biggest hit show for fair-weather fans. With life beaming behind her eyes, the dance moves so smoothly that she would hydrate a body and hair flashes that would make a grown man cry, Spears is the top of her game and this tour is a treat.
It's been 11 years since Spears saw his public slump, when the then 25-year-old hair stripped her hair in a salon, and although it's unlikely that that part of her story will ever disappear, the life of Piece of Me is a star see that is stronger than ever before. More than a success story, hers is a survival story.
Despite the poor planning of this performance on a Monday night, there are plenty of after parties in the city for fans, including the It & # 39; s the Britney Afterparty, B * tch happening at PrHomo in The Hub, Temple Bar. So now that you know what to do after the concert, here is all you need to know for the performance of Britney Spears on Monday, August 20 at 3Arena in Dublin.
Are there any tickets available?
Although this performance was initially sold out on the day of the release, there are more tickets available that you can buy at Ticketmaster for € 88.50.
What time does everything start?
Doors open at 6.30 pm and support comes from Mr. Worldwide himself – that's Pitbull, if you do not know – and he is expected to be on stage at 8pm. Spears must arrive at the podium at 9 pm.
How do I get there?
Parking is available in the parking garage at Point Village (you can make a reservation for € 12 via Ticketmaster), but gig visitors are encouraged to leave their cars at home and use the red line Luas or use Dublin Bus. The 151 runs every 10 minutes during rush hour and takes you to Castleforbes Road, the nearest stop of the location.
What about security?
Bags are sought upon entry. Bottles, cans, selfie sticks, large umbrellas, iPads / tablets, video cameras, professional cameras (lens 35 mm or more), audio recording devices, Go-Pro, large posters (A3 +), large flags on poles, belt chains, laser pointers and anything that can be considered as a weapon is forbidden. So take light to keep the waiting as short as possible.
