(4/24/00, 12 p.m. ET) - Britney Spears headed to Hawaii on Easter Sunday so she can tape a Fox television special today titled, simply enough, Britney Spears In Hawaii. The free concert is scheduled to start at 6:00PM local time on the beach in front of the Hilton Hawaiian Village lagoon in Honolulu, Hawaii. Britney Spears In Hawaii is scheduled to air June 8. The Fox concert event will serve as a preview of Spears' Oops... I Did It Again North American concert tour, which kicks off June 15 at the Blockbuster Pavilion in Charlotte, North Carolina. The tour wraps September 10 at Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Fla.
The Fox special also serves to promote her album Oops... I Did It Again, which features 12 new songs and is due out May 16. The album contains contributions from Mutt Lange, Max Martin, Rodney Jerkins, and Kristian Lundin, among others. Spears tells LAUNCH that her voice and her material have matured since her debut album: "I think my voice has matured a lot, but I don't know if it has gotten more soulful," she notes. "I think it will probably have a little bit more of a hip-hop flair."
The complete track list for Oops!... I Did It Again is as follows: "Oops!... I Did It Again," "Stronger," "Don't Go Knockin' On My Door," "Satisfaction (I Can't Get No)," "Don't Let Me Be The Last To Know," "What U See (Is What U Get)," "Lucky," "One Kiss From You," "Where Are You Now," "Can't Make You Love Me," "When Your Eyes Say It," and "Dear Diary."
In other Spears news, the singer will soon release the biography/photo book Heart To Heart, which she wrote with her mother, Lynne Spears. The book offers a behind-the-scenes look at Spears' life at home and on the road, and it is due to hit stores on May 9.
