Britney Spears, in association with AEG Live, is bringing "The Circus Starring Britney Spears" to Scotiabank Place in Ottawa on Friday, Aug. 21. The concert is part of the North American tour's 20-date second leg, which was added in response to overwhelming fan demand, and follows the sensational performer's current tour of Europe.

"The Circus Starring Britney Spears" is a dazzling display of music, dance, magic and theatrics. With its cast of nearly 50 dancers, magicians, clowns and acrobats, and a travelling staff of more than 200, the $50-million extravaganza tours with an unprecedented 60 tonnes of equipment in 34 trucks for what has already proven to be the most electrifying musical event ever.

"The Circus Starring Britney Spears" kicked-off in New Orleans on March 3. To date, The Circus is the highest-grossing tour of 2009 in North America.

Britney is currently touring Europe to rave 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, while The Financial Times states "...with costume changes, a mini-magic show and blingy bicycles, the presentation was a feast for the eyes."
