Britney Smokes Out Vancouver

Britney Spears is apologizing to fans after smoky conditions at a concert in Vancouver led to a 30-minute delay in her show.

The 27-year-old’s concert Wednesday night was halted for half-an-hour, according to a blog post on the show by the Vancouver Sun. Some audience members grew impatient waiting for Spears and her troupe to return to stage.

Spears’ publicist Holly Shakoor issued a statement after the show apologizing to fans. The statement said “Crew members above the stage became ill due to a ventilation issue.”

Spears began her “Circus” tour of the United States, Canada and England on March 3 in New Orleans. Her father and attorneys are exploring expanding the tour to include more shows in Europe and Australia.
