“Stages” DVD and book to be released before Christmas

Britney is to celebrate the end of the Dream Within A Dream tour with a book and DVD set to be released before Christmas, tentatively entitled “Stages.” The book features new photos of Britney with her friends and family, as well as onstage and backstage glimpses that were snapped at various points on the road. Culminating with the tour’s final show, which ended only five songs deep when a lightning storm caused its stoppage in Mexico, the DVD chronicles the tour from a fly-on-the-wall perspective. Acclaimed filmmaker Albert Maysles, best known for collaborating with brother David on the 1970 Rolling Stones documentary “Gimme Shelter,” assisted with the home video.

“I wanted to share with my fans all the things that they never get to see that make it all so special for me. It’s my way of saying thank you.”
