At the NEC Arena, Birmingham
Monday 20 November 2000
On Monday 20 November 2000, I had a opportunity of seeing one of my favourite pop star, Britney Spears in Concert at the National Exhibition Centre Arena (NEC Arena) in Birmingham, UK. I booked this ticket way back in March 2000 on launch day. This concert was reschedule from Saturday 7 October 2000 due to travel difficulties.
I arrived in Birmingham NEC at 5:40pm. The NEC arena is the easiest place to get to, with fast direct train access from Birmingham and London. I arrived at the NEC by car next to the M42. I arrived just as they admitted guest into the arena. Everyone had their bags search for illegal cans or cameras but not as much security as the Steps concert in May! They let in small camera into the arena. Souvenir time! I brought a programme for £10 and that is all I can afford this time! The ticket for the concert was £25.00, brought in March 2000 via the internet.
I found my way to my seat at around 6:30pm and just sat there looking at the set. It started to fill up quite quickly nearer to 7:30pm, the schedule start time. Britney Spears didn't come on until 8:45pm. From 7:30pm, 2 supporting groups came onto the stage, all singing around 3 songs each. In order, 'Boys and Girls' and Sister to Sister. The support groups in total lasted for about 50 minutes. Britney came on at 8:40pm and finished at around 10:05pm.
Due to the lighting and also I was quite far back in the arena, the picture quality is not very good. Flash photography does not work in these situations! All photographs were taken by me. None are copyright. You are free to use them. Please be patient. This page with photos takes 182K. With a bit of carefully zooming in using my scanner and my art program, I achieved the following photos.
