Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Britney is back after a four-year residency in Las Vegas. To mark her first UK show in seven years, this weekend she turned Brighton Pride into its biggest year yet with a record-breaking 57,000 fans packing into Preston Park to see her headline.
Scantily clad glitz
The crowd abuzz with electricity and glitter match Britney’s skimpy bejewelled outfit. The audience has gone to town with their outfits, emulating her different looks, from flight attendants to school girls, to red catsuits.

Who is it?
The trend of fans shouting, “who is it?” before her famous line of “It’s Britney Bitch” is in full force since it went viral and the crowd can be heard screaming it during the intro.
Literally all of the hits
Opening with Work Bitch the show has everything you would expect from the princess of pop with a 90 minute extravaganza of revolving sets, a troop of twenty dancers, and multiple costume changes.
Gyrating her way through a mammoth set of her back catalogue, all the biggest songs are featured, including Womaniser, Boys, Stronger and …Baby One More Time.
The biggest crowd pleasers prove to be Toxic and (You Drive Me) Crazy, sending spectators wild with eruptions of screams and singing.
Leave some hits for the rest of us, eh Britney?

Dancing until the world ends
Wowing with the slick routines that she’s known for, the adoring crowd cheer as she’s flung through the air by her dancers. With Britney, we can always expect some strutting and dramatic floor moves, and the spectacle even features her dancing around a pole during Slave 4 U. The set list is up-tempo and the choreography gymnastic, so it’s no surprise that she’s got the abs to match.
I took this picture at the end of the @britneyspears performance and honestly I’m about to change my job title to creative art director.
