“The company that was the foundation for AEG Live was jump-started by Britney Spears’ 2001-02 ‘The Dream Within A Dream’ sold-out arena tour, so it is with poignant satisfaction that we are Brit’s promoter again,” said Randy Phillips, CEO of AEG Live.  “We’re honored to have been entrusted with the live career of one of contemporary music’s greatest performers.  ‘The Circus Starring Britney Spears’ is on target to be one of 2009’s great success stories, based on early box office reaction, and it’s a wildly imaginative production.”
 
“Britney and I are both thrilled to see how excited her fans are for the Circus tour,” said Larry Rudolph, Britney Spears’ manager.  “This show will blow people’s minds, and promises to show Britney’s fans something they will never forget!”
