A 31-year-old woman spent her last moments on a fairground ride at the Britney Spears concert on Monday in Dublin. She fell from the ride which was set up outside the O2 arena, where the performance was held. She hit the ground and died instantly. Her death was confirmed at 11.20 p.m. The victim has not been identified yet.
Immediately after the tragic accident, the forensic experts have closed down the area for investigation. The police officers and the Health and Safety Authority representatives are determined to examine the facts and determine what happened. They have launched an inquiry and have sent technical experts to the place of the accident.
Britney Spears’ concert in the Irish capital is part of her Femme Fatale Tour, which started in June 2011. It is the 7th tour in the diva’s career and includes a total of 78 performances all over the world: 44 shows in the United States, 7 shows in South America, 26 in Europe and one in Asia. Femme Fatale Tour was officially announced in March and was supposed to be featured by Enrique Iglesias. The singer cancelled his appearance just hours after the news was released. He was replaced by rapper Nicki Minaj. “I think she has a distinct sound when she raps. It really stands out and sets her apart from everyone else. I’m happy she’s able to be on tour with me because that’s just amazing”, Britney told MTV, in April, about Nicki.
The Femme Fatale Tour next appearance is today in Belfast, UK, at Odyssey Arena. The following days Britney will perform in several places around UK and then, on November 9, she has a concert scheduled in Lisbon Portugal.
