Britney Spears Pushes Back U.S. Tour Launch To November 1

10/30/2001 7:00 AM, Yahoo! Music

(10/30/01, 7 a.m. ET) -- Britney Spears's Britney 2001 U.S. tour, which was scheduled to kick off tomorrow (October 31) at the MCI Center in Washington, D.C., has been pushed back one day due to production delays and will now launch at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, on Thursday (November 1).

The MCI Center date has been rescheduled for December 21 and her New York City show at Madison Square Garden (MSG) has been moved from December 4 to December 5. Upon her return from a promotional tour of Australia, Spears was overcome by a case of the flu. After a doctor prescribed a week of rest, tour rehearsals were delayed, prompting the postponement of the initial tour dates. Spears is currently rehearsing at the Nationwide Arena with her full stage production, which includes a new tri-platform "end stage in the round" design.

Tickets for the original December 4 date at MSG will be honored for the December 5 show. Tickets purchased for the scheduled October 31 date at MCI Center will be honored for the December 21 show. Patrons that are unable to attend the rescheduled shows may obtain a refund at the point of purchase.

Last month at the 2001 MTV Music Video Awards Spears performed "I'm A Slave 4 U" with a live snake wrapped around her neck. She told LAUNCH that while her upcoming tour will be an amazing production, she will not be bringing any live animals on stage with her. "No, there's not going to be any animals on this tour. I'm already doing enough crazy stuff--no animals," she said. "Yesterday I was going through the run through, and I was, like, 'By the time I'm 30, there's not going to be anything left for me to do.'"

Spears is scheduled to perform "I'm Not A Girl" on the Rosie O'Donnell Show on November 5, and she will perform on CBS's The Late Show With David Letterman on November 6, the day her new album, Britney, comes out.
