TV magician spills Spears tour secrets
The TV magician hired to jazz up Britney Spears's forthcoming world tour has given fans a glimpse of what to expect.

Illusionist Ed Alonzo, who has previously appeared on Saved By The Bell, promised E! Online that 'The Circus Starring Britney Spears' will be an "amazing concert" experience.

"We're going to be doing the classics of magic but a little high-tech," he explained. "We'll be doing a little dissection, transposition, a vanish, an appearance.

"There are some complicated things... but because she's a dancer, it really makes sense to put her in the magic, and it works and she's really really good at it. Some of it's pretty scary but she gets right in there with no reservations."

He added that Spears will be performing "the best music... that people have loved over the years" and "brand new favourites from the new album".

Describing the three-ring, circus-inspired set, he said: "[It is] exactly what you would see in a big giant Vegas production show."

Spears kicks off her tour in New Orleans on March 3. She is scheduled to play a mini-residency at London's O2 arena from June 3 and a one-off show in Manchester on June 17.
