Singer Britney Spears performs onstage during the opening night of "The Circus Starring Britney Spears" tour at the New Orleans Arena on March 3, 2009 in New Orleans, Louisiana.
“It was great dancing, great showmanship. But the whole thing was lip-synced, which was to be expected,” concertgoer Tina Antoine said.
The Circus Tour stepped into the ring at the Sports Arena. It was Britney's third time performing at the Midway District venue.
Some of the tabloid goddess's littlest fans were offered a great deal to see her San Diego show. Children under the age of 2 got in for free if they sat on Mom or Dad's lap.
The concert was a hot topic on radio stations this morning, including on AJ in the Morning on 94.1. Geena the Latina, Delana Bennett and young Tanya went to concert Thursday night.
“I saw a lot of kids at the Britney concert and I was wondering who would pay for a two year old to come to a Britney show? Now it all makes sense,” Delana told NBCSanDiego. “Great idea for a promotion, because a lot of young moms love Britney. Even if she did do a little lipsyncing!”
Twitter was all a flutter Thursday night and Friday morning. Here is a sample of what people were saying about the concert.
