 Los Angeles, CA (June 10th, 2009) - Britney Spears in association with AEG Live is bringing "The Circus Starring Britney Spears" back to North America. Currently touring Europe, Britney will return to North America this August to perform in 20 cities.

"The Circus Starring Britney Spears" kicked-off in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA on March 3, 2009, and is the highest grossing tour of 2009 in North America to date. "The pop star...pulled out all the stops before a sell-out crowd of 16,400 to launch her much anticipated world tour," states Reuters. Britney is currently touring Europe to raves reviews. "The Circus starring Britney Spears, the relentlessly high octane and superbly choreographed affair delighted 23,000 assembled fans" claims the UK's Daily Mail, and The Financial Times stating "...with costume changes, a mini-magic show and blingy bicycles, the presentation was a feast for the eyes."

"I'm so excited to bring The Circus back to North America. I've made some really cool changes to the show that I think my fans are really going to love. I also get to bring the show to some new cities we missed the first time around," exclaims Britney.

    I am so glad that Britney is returning to NC. I haven't seen her since 2000 on her "Oops!" tour. That was probably one of the most memorable experiences of my childhood. I can't wait to see her on stage again. Ahhhh! I'm sooo excited!
