Get your pom-pom pigtails ready
Britney Spears Live In Concert
Throw it back to the 2000s this weekend as the Princess of Pop will be hitting Bangkok’s Impact Arena with not one, but two concerts. If you’re a Britney fan, we know you already have your ticket since the "Toxic" singer sold out faster than you could say “oops!” and graciously added a second show. So get ready to channel your inner Spears and sing your heart out to pop classics such as "Oops!.. I Did It Again", "Womanizer", and of course, "Baby One More Time".
