Jamie Spears has requested permission from a judge during a court hearing held Tuesday to extend Britney’s “Circus” tour, but due to the current economic slump, those plans may be in jeopardy.
According to People.com, Britney “is halfway into a 49-show tour through the U.S., Canada and the UK, with hopes to add more dates through Europe, Australia and a possible second U.S. tour.”
“It hasn’t yet been determined whether it’s feasible to expand tours to the Europe or Australia legs,” L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz said following a closed-door discussion with Jamie and his lawyers.
“That will be determined in the future after everyone’s seen the analysis, in terms of the economy and value of the dollar,” Goetz added.
Jamie Spears currently makes $18,000 a week off Britney while on tour due to his conservatorship duties.
“Britney’s loving being onstage again,” says a source close to Britney. “Health-wise, she’s progressing every week, it’s amazing. Britney was the single force for wanting to go on tour in the first place.”
