Christopher Blagg of the Boston Herald was at the Verizon Wireless Center in Manchester on Tuesday (April 6) for the latest stop on Britney Spears’ Onyx Hotel tour. Blagg writes, “With apocalyptically dressed dancers floating down from the rafters, Spears made her grand entrance in a tight black Catwoman suit atop a metal bus singing her latest hit single ‘Toxic’. Actually, Britney rarely sang anything at all. Lip-synching was the order of the night, and while she was adept at this skill, it contrasted sharply with the slower ballads where she managed to flex a couple vocal chords. Obviously Britney’s tightly choreographed performances are not intended to be vocal showcases, but the miming was disappointing nonetheless. Her one attempt at the piano was also suspect as her hands were cleverly hidden.”
