Yesterday was one crazy day... So we got in Montreal quite early to go get our tickets for Britney's VIP party at Tribe Hyperclub on Rue St-Jacques. We were almost first in line, waiting in the cold for about 2:30 hours. During that time, we were interviewed by some local newspaper, it was cool. We still waiting outside when they started installing the red carpet, lights and all to be ready for Britney's arrival. Then that doorman came out saying it was a pick and choose and not first in line, first served thing. So they proceeded with selecting people and my we were among the first fans to be chosen. That's when we freaked out, seriously. So we got in and we hear this guy say "I think we picked all the hotties already... Can someone else go outside and see if they're more cuz for me... the rest is blah." While I felt flattered to be among the 'hotties', I felt bad for the other fans waiting outside... Anyway, we got our VIP bracelets and we were out and on our way to the Bell Centre.
We got there but still had a few hours to wait before the doors would open so we just went shopping around and stuff. When we got in line in front of the side doors, we could see them still fixing the stage and doing sound/light checks. That's just to tell you how on a rush they were... The doors were to open in 5 minutes and they were still testing things out. But everything was fine, the full stage was up... It was all there when we finally got inside.
So we bought some tour merchandise (yes, again... I must own every product now), had a drink and proceeded to find our seats, which were amazing.
Met some fans of the site and all, said hi and everything. It's always special to be recognized by people, seriously. Thank you for taking time to say hi.
The show started on time with The Pussycat Dolls and they were on fire once again. One thing is for sure... The crowd in Montreal was sooo amazing and much better than the one in Toronto (sorry you guys in Toronto but it's true). Everyone was already in for the Dolls and people were up the whole time, singing alone, yelling, clapping... It was insane. The Dolls even said we were an incredible crowd, maybe the best so far. They couldn't believe it and they said Montreal fans rocked big time and that they had missed Montreal.
Their set was awesome once again, they interacted with the crowd even more. Whenever Nicole would say Britney Spears, everyone would go wild. It was great.
The artists from The Bigg Apple Circus came out, did their thing and then, usually, that's when the show starts but not this time... People from GEG, the promoters for Montreal's show, came on stage and announced they had a surprise for Montreal fans. They said the concert at the Bell Centre was the best and fastest selling concert for the whole tour and because the demand was so great, Britney and her team had decided to add another concert in Montreal on May 5th and that we were the very first to know. Everyone went wild, once again. I did too... Cuz I'll see her again in May. Crazy huh...
And then, it was time... The Ringleader was about to take the stage.
Ok, I can't tell for sure because I haven't seen all shows so far but this one must have been the best. I have this feeling. It was just perfect and Britney was on TOP FORM. Her dancing was more intense, she interacted with the crowd, her mic was on and some parts were live (as it was in Toronto). You could tell the crowd was giving her mad energy. She was really into it, smiling all the time. We could hear her say 'whooo' and everything. It was perfect, it really was. One thing I noticed is a new dance break during Baby One More Time. I don't know if I just forgot this part about the Toronto concert or if it was really new... Either way, it was sick. Loved it.
Best crowd, best show. The night was already perfect and it would soon get even better.
So we got out of the Bell Centre and made our way to Tribe Hyperclub. We got in line with the rest of the people who had VIP access and we waited for her to get there, which she did surprisingly fast. The press was there, the security was tight again and loads of fans were waiting outside, hoping to get a glimpse of her.
The tour buses arrived, followed by Larry and then, the black SUV in which Brett, Felicia and Britney herself took place. She got out, looking sexy as hell in gray leggings, high boots, black coat and top and sunglasses on. She walked the red carpet quite fast and then she go in the club. I was in shock, seriously. It came to my mind that I should take pictures but I just couldn't... I was just starring at her and couldn't believe how radiant she was. Plus, security were checking on us and lets just say my professional camera isn't very discreet... Minutes later, her dancers arrived on the scene and they were just so cool. They seem all really close and you can tell they're nice people. They were taking pictures of us, waving and all.
After a while, we got inside, passed security, had our digital cameras taken away. Once in the club, I started looking around right away, looking for Britney. That's when I saw the elevated VIP space she was in with all her entourage.
She addressed the crowd saying something along the lines of 'Hope you have fun tonight dancing and all. I'm happy to be here. Peace!" To which, of course, fans went crazy.
So she was there, in the back, having a total blast, laughing and just enjoying herself. She was hidden by the dancers at some point but we could see her dance with Brett and some of the dancers.
To give you an idea, her dancing in the club was pretty much similar to what we saw in dance rehearsals. Nor barriers, nothing... Just her having a good time. She made hilarious faces and moves and spent most of the time with Brett. She had her sunglasses on the all time in good Britney fashion. On the other side were Larry and other people. I heard fans saying Jamie Lynn was in town yesterday but I didn't see her, so I wouldn't know...
The dancers just cracked me up. Their moves were hot, they had fun and they kept throwing napkins at us.
After about an hour, they were all leaving already... Britney was on her way to board her private jet on her way to New York.
Security gathered around the entrance, closed a black curtain and she was out. We went out trying to see her but the security around her wouldn't let us. She jumped in the black SUV and she was out.
She stayed for about an hour and it was just amazing. Man, I was in a club with Miss Britney Spears... I still can hardly believe it. I was partying with Britney man... She was so sweet, so lovely and so down to earth. That's a moment I'll never forget.
Over the past few months, I've been to NYC for the release of Circus, was there for her GMA appearance, saw her twice on the tour and was at a club with her. I just feel really blessed. I think I love her even more now. I really do.
It was kind of surreal to actually be there... You know, I saw Britney in concerts may times, on Good Morning America and all that but it was actually the first time I was at an event she'd attend. Security was tight, fans crazy, vibe extremely hot. My full review is coming up for you guys... In the meantime, check out this first picture of Britney on the Tribe Hyperclub red carpet and a video covering the event.
