Britney Spears causes chaos in Jerusalem
Britney Spears' arrival in Israel has caused quite the commotion. It's the pop star's first visit to the country and a tour of the holy sites in Jerusalem on Sunday was described by Israeli news outlets as a veritable mob scene.
While Spears' security detail was substantial, the Western Wall is mainly accessible by foot. This presented a challenge for the singer and her team as they made their way through mobs of fans, press, and onlookers.
Spears was scheduled to perform at Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park on Monday night, the same outdoor venue where Justin Bieber and Aerosmith recently headlined and where Radiohead is due to take the stage on July 19.
Prior to her Israel expedition, Spears had spent the last few weeks performing in Asia as part of her “Britney: Live in Concert tour”.
