(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) -- Britney Spears is bringing Femme Fatale to her fans. Her tour, featuring Nicki Minaj as the opening act, kicks off in Sacramento, California Thursday night.
According to published reports, Spears' over-the-top show will feature nine costume changes and features an "action-hero"-type theme, with the singer changing identities and appearing to travel the world. At one point during the show, the singer will pull some fans out of the audience to dance with her.
As for the music, Spears will cover Madonna's "Burning Up" and Rihanna's "S&M," as well as much of the Femme Fatale album and pretty much every single one of her hits, from "...Baby One More Time" to "'Til the World Ends." Supposedly, Spears will also be singing more songs live this time, as opposed to her past tours, where she lip-synched nearly everything.
In an interview with the British morning TV show Daybreak, Spears said of the Femme Fatale tour, "There's a lot of surprises in the show...it's probably one of the most impactful, entertainment shows I've ever done."
She also said the show is "just more me" than any one she'd done previously.
The North American leg of the Femme Fatale tour is scheduled to wrap up on Aug. 14. In September, it heads overseas.
