Britney Spears is known for delivering an over-the-top stage show, and she promises that her forthcoming Femme Fatale Tour alongside Nicki Minaj will be no different.
In a new video interview posted on her website, the pop princess opens up about her 26-date summer venture, which is set to kick off June 16 in Sacramento and make its way across North America, before concluding August 13 in Toronto.
“The Femme Fatale Tour will hopefully just be outrageously spectacular,” Spears said when asked about the trek. “I’m just hoping that the choreographers will come up with just the most outrageous things, and I’m really excited.”
While it’s been just over a month since the release of Femme Fatale, Brit gushed about the outing, saying, “This is one of the most excited I’ve been about a project in a really long time, so I can’t wait.”
While a set list has yet to surface, it would make sense that some of Spears’ personal favorite Femme Fatale cuts will be performed throughout her concert, which she revealed as “He About to Lose Me,” “Criminal” and “Till the World Ends.”
Fans caught an early glimpse at the forthcoming tour last week when video footage of the pop star rehearsing the Bloodshy & Avant-produced “How I Roll” surfaced online. Wearing a baby-blue sports bra and sweatpants, a smiling Spears showed off some playful dance moves surrounded by a group of dancers.
Spears’ manager, Larry Rudolph, told MTV News back in March that the tour is expected to have a postapocalyptic theme in tune with her latest single, “Till the World Ends.” “This is exactly the direction we’re moving in,” he said. ” ’Till the World Ends’ keeps becoming a theme for us. … The way we come up with a concept for a show like this is we sit with Britney, she talks to us about what she’s interested in and what excites her.”
