LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Pop star Britney Spears is planning to hit the road in support of her forthcoming album "Circus" in 2009 for an international tour.
Produced by AEG, the tour will likely follow in the tracks of successful AEG-promoted outings by Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake and the Spice Girls and target arenas and similar venues.
Brit has been a serious earner in past tours with her last outing in 2004 grossing more than $34 million in ticket sales, according to Billboard, and $30 million in tour merch.
The tour will offer the singer a chance to put behind her the erratic behavior and unfortunate personal problems that have dominated Britney-related headlines in the last year. Spears has seemed considerably more focused in recent weeks and her appearance at this year's VMAs was praised by fans and critics alike.
She will also attempt to confront the issue with an 90 minute "documentary" slated for November 30th on MTV. Tentatively titled "For the Record," Spears hopes that the broadcast will provide her with the chance to "set the record straight."
As of yet, no dates or itinerary has been posted for the tour. "Womanizer," a single from her next album "Circus" has been released to the pleasure of her fans – look for the full album on December 2nd. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
