Jive issue statement on Mexico departure

Following the early finish of the final show of Britney’s Dream Within A Dream tour in Mexico on 28th July, Jive Records have issued a statement saying: “A hazardous lightning storm made it essential for Spears to depart the stage. She began the show during a break between two rainstorms, but the degree of risk to the audience and stage crew associated with the second storm, an electrical storm, made it impossible for the show to continue.”

Britney added: “The Mexican fans are one of the best audiences to play for. We decided that we had no choice but to cancel the show after the storm and lightning showed no signs of clearing up.”
