I don’t think she was ready at that point after how badly she was treated from the vma performance. 

I remember by the end of 2009 BS.com posted a few "secrets and facts" we didn't know about The Circus tour, and one these was the Gimme more explanation. If I remember correctly Gimme more was planned

It was too legendary for even Britney to perform then

Yeah, it felt understandable she gave it a “break” by leaving it as an interlude. Saying that she more than made up for it by performing POM, Get Naked, Radar, Hot As Ice & Freakshow. And then finally gave GM and BTI the performances they deserved in Vegas.

I think she was so scarred from the VMA 07 performance. I don't think she was ready for people to judge the performance and compare it to the VMAs and be reminded of it and all. I'm sure that's the reason it took her 9 years to perform on the VMAs again despite releasing three albums during that time.

The Circus Tour setlist was so weird though - only 3 songs from the current album, lots from Blackout yet she didn't perform 2 of 3 singles, 2 album tracks from ITZ.

Among other secrets was the "merry christmas" yelling during a summer date which was a bet between Britney and Larry, and Britney lost so she had to say "Meeeeeeeerry Christmasssss" :drinky_cheers_wine_smoke_bubbles_sunglasses_nod_tea_sip:

See, now that’s the kind of cutesy behind the scenes type of **** we DESERVE to know. :lessons_preaching_telling_hand_smack:

If I remember correctly Gimme more was planned to be part of the tour but Britney didn't have enough time to reharse properly for it so they decided to leave it as an interlude remix instead :frenchy_britney_u_sure_ff_femme_fatale_you_look:

These both sound like PR cover-ups/excuses to be honest. Also I was at the show where she said Merry Christmas, it was March 2009 =)

BTI and Kill The Lights woulda been nice as well.  

True but the BTI interlude is SO iconic. Invented fan cams tbh (jk lol) I love how in videos the whole crowd screams as soon as the beat kicks in. I wish BTI had more longevity because when I saw her in Vegas a lot of the crowd sat back down when the song came on :(

 

Definitely got the vibe it was because of 2007. Outlets were being nice to her with her performance otherwise but I don’t think they wanted to cause any comparisons to be made by the media for Gimme More. It’s funny because whenever the sample of “It’s Britney *****” came on the crowd was so hyped. I can only imagine if the actual song was performed.

Honestly that was a huge scandal among the fan community, I think it has to do with the VMAS performance...

but anyway any person who took such a flop of a decision needs to be fired, and if it comes from Britney well I'm sorry but she needs to be fired aswell !!! ...And rehired of course because, you know, we need her, Myah Marie can't do all the work.

Probably time constraints and/or she just wasn't ready to do that song yet due to the 2007 VMA performance.

It's a shame that Blackout era/album & songs in general probably give her bad memories or PTSD, despite how amazing that entire album was considering what was going on with her. She probably always feels/felt weird doing any of those songs, especially Gimme More.

Eh idk. It’s always been told Britney is very involved with picking the songs she wants to do. who knows if this is true, but this rumor persisted even to Domination. But if it is true she always adds a lot of songs from Blackout. She also consistently killed it and looked excited performing Gimme More ESPECIALLY in 2016
