SEXY SINGER, DANCER, ACTRESS BRITNEY SPEARS
ON TOUR AND BRINGING HER ACT TO HARD ROCK
On June 28, 28, 1999, Spears began her first headlining "Baby One More Time Tour" in North America, which was positively received by critics, but generated some controversy due to her racy outfits. An extension of her tour, titled Crazy2k, followed in March 2000.
Spears premiered songs from her upcoming second album during the show. “OOPS!..I Did It Again,” her second studio album, was released in May 2000. It debuted at number one in the U.S., selling 1.3 million copies, breaking the Sound Scan record for the highest debut sales by any solo artist. The album sold more than 20 million copies, worldwide to date, makng it one of the best-selling albums of all time.
Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone said that "the great thing about ‘Oops!-under the surface, Britney’s demand for satisfaction is complex, fierce and downright scary, making her a true child of rock & roll tradition." The albums lead single, "Oops!...I Did It Again,” peaked at the top of the charts Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and many other European nations. The album as well as the title track received Grammy nominations for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, respectively.
The same year, Spears embarked on the Oops!...I Did It Again Tour, which grossed $40.5 million, she also released her first book, Britney Spears’ Heart To Heart co-written with her mother. On September 7, 2000, Spears performed at the 2000 MTV Video Music Awards.
Halfway through the performance, she ripped off her black suit to reveal a sequined flesh-colored bodysuit, followed by a heavy dance routine. It is noted by critics as the moment that Spears showed signs of becoming a more provocative performer. Amidst media speculation, Spears confirmed she was dating NSYNC member Justin Timberlake. She also bought a home in Destin, Florida.
This is surely one tour that should not be missed on July 27-28 and 29, 2018 at 8 p.m. .Tickets are now on sale $220 to $330 and plus. Purchase tickets at Ticketmaster, online at www.ticketmaster.com. The Hard Rock Live is located at on State Road 7 (441) in Hollywood.

PALM BEACH DRAMAWORKS AT THE
DON & ANN BROWN THEATRE
PRESENTS WOODY GUTHRIE’S AMERICAN SONG
The show conceived by Peter Glazer and orchestrated by Jeff Waxman, features more than two dozen of the legendary balladeer’s songs, including “Bound For Glory,” “Grand Coulee Dam,” “Nine Hundred Miles,” “Hard Travelin,” “Union Maid,” “Pastures of Plenty,” and of course, his most famous piece, “This Land is Your Land.” A powerful storyteller and insightful chronicler of America, Guthrie was a wondering troubadour who listened to the people he met in his travels and wrote songs based on what he saw and heard.
He was a poet of the downtrodden, the voiceless, the powerless, and the forgotten, as humanist who rallied against injustice but also celebrated the splendors of this country. Guthrie’s work had a powerful influence on subsequent generations and remains strong to this day.
The performance schedule is as follows. Evenings on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Matinees Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets range from $55 to $90. Pay your age tickets are available for ages 18-40. For all other information call 561-514-4042-extension 2.
