Britney Spears was in Vancouver for a concert and right in the middle of her concert, she left the stage for about 30 minutes because there was smoke in the audience, even if no one in the crowd confirmed that someone was smoking.
Spears’ concert was reportedly halted about 15 minutes into her performance, and an announcer spoke up to tell the concertgoers to put out their cigarettes. The Sun reported that some audience members grew impatient while waiting for Spears and her troupe to return to the stage. After Britney returned and ended the show, Spears told the crowd, “Don’t smoke weed.”
However, Spears’ publicist Holly Shakoor issued a statement after the incident apologizing to fans about the delay. The statement said “crew members above the stage became ill due to a ventilation issue.”
Britney’s’ “Circus” tour started in the U.S. on March 3 and continued to Canada. She is scheduled to go to England for some concerts, while her father and attorneys are still exploring the possibility of expanding the tour to include more shows in Europe and Australia.
