    Britney Spears Is Playing Brighton Pride And...Scarborough For Some Reason

    The icon is playing five venues in the United Kingdom, including an open-air theatre in Scarborough just off the A165, near the Sea Life Centre.

    Britney Spears has announced that her "Piece of Me" Las Vegas show, which she has been performing in the city since 2013, will be touring the UK this summer.

    And in a rather amazing turn of events, it turns out she is bringing her Las Vegas show to Scarborough.

    Now to give the venue some credit, many acclaimed artists have played this theatre, including Little Mix, the Script, and Elton John.

    But a lot of people, quite rightly, are confused and delighted that Britney is playing Scarborough.

    Can we please address the fact that Britney is playing Scarborough?

    Britney Spears playing Scarborough is the biggest curveball 2018 could possibly have thrown at us

    It was also announced on Tuesday morning that Britney will be headlining Brighton Pride on the Saturday, with Nile Rodgers and Chic playing on the Sunday.

    And my god, the announcement on Twitter was so damn big so many people are going to be late for work today.

    Is "I was trying to buy Brighton Pride tickets" a legitimate excuse for being late to work?

    Does anyone want to do an Uber Pool to Brighton because there is no effing way I'm getting that train.
