Will Britney Spears Begin Her Long Awaited Comeback with Three Shows at the House of Blues?
Just Jared believes he has the scoop with something he posted early this morning:
Brit Brit has a packed schedule coming up — she will be performing with a handful of back-up dancers under the alias “The M+M’s” at the House of Blues in San Diego on May 1st, House of Blues Anaheim on May 2nd, and House of Blues Sunset Strip on May 3rd.
Unless it's a terribly devious hoax, whoever the act is, they have to be somewhat popular since the ticket price is $35 and nobody knows who it is.If it indeed turns out to be a hoax, wouldn't you think that HOB would be held partially responsible for allowing people to think that they were buying tickets to Britney Spears' wig-sporting comeback?
Well, LAist believes in Just Jared so we picked up a pair of tickets. We don't recommend you doing the same unless more information is revealed.
But we will certainly know for sure on May 1 after the San Diego show, which means if it really is a Britney show, expect mayhem in Anaheim the next day, and a paparazzi feeding frenzy on May 3rd here in LA.
Although how funny would it be if these were actually Eminem's comeback shows?
Update: we're being told that Celeb Slam first broke this story, so we're going to them with our refund demand if they're wrong. :)
