The popster was originally scheduled to play the Mohegan Sun Arena on March 26. However, when officials at the Uncasville, Conn., venue compared the tour’s routing with the logistics of moving in all that stuff – visual effects, acrobatic equipment and a 360° stage – they got a rude dose of reality and realized they didn’t account for nearly enough time for load-in.

Now Britney and the arena have settled on May 3 as the new date for the originally-scheduled March show.

According to the Mohegan Sun’s Web site:

“The reschedule is due to the grand size of the show’s production, including a 360° stage, acrobatic apparatus and intense visual effects. The current tour routing for the Mohegan Sun date does not allow enough time for travel and the needed production set-up time.”
