Britney Spears to play The O2?

Britney Spears is rumoured to be playing The 02 in Ireland later this year.

A source told The Irish Mirror: 'Brit is back, and this tour is going to be bigger than ever. Her new work is going to blow people's minds and she's adamant that she wants her Irish fans to get in on the action.

'This is going to be the comeback of the year- it's what we've all been waiting for- it's going to be the hottest ticket in town.'

According to the source: 'Britney's team have already sat down and drawn up a list of countries they want the show to roll into. And the UK and Ireland are top of the list in Europe.'

They also claim that Britney will be singing live, unlike on her 'Circus' tour. 'She will be singing live this time. Britney wants to win back the support she lost on the last tour.'

Rehearsals are set to 'start in August'.
