Oops! Britney Spears Has New Try At Old Songs

Contributed by hellahooked:

Joan Anderman of the The Boston Globe reviewed concert in Manchester, New Hampshire. Anderman writes, “Lip-synching? Check. Lavish fantasy-themed production? Yawn. Simulated sex? Give me a break. It’s a terrible thing for a critic to admit, but there’s nothing left to say. Everything regarding Britney Spears’s mysteriously brilliant career has been covered, and all she brought to the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester last night was more of it. Spears was wheeled in on top of a glorified luggage cart, strapped into a black vinyl cat suit, mouthing the words to ‘Toxic.’ She happily skipped off 90 minutes later, looking for all the world as if she’d been sprung, to ‘In the Zone’. In between, like the long-suffering star of a show that just won’t close, Spears shimmied, squirmed, stroked, and pretended to sing her way through a series of fantasies (Lounge Singer Britney, Garden Nymph Britney) brought to cheesy and sinister life within the hotel’s magical walls. That’s not to say there weren’t any impressive musical moments. Lounge singer Britney transformed ‘Hit Me Baby . . . One More Time’ and ‘Oops! I Did It Again’ into jazzy, vintage-style show-stoppers. It was, in fact, brilliant, and it was a tidy way of relegating those pesky early hits to oldie status.”
