Pop icon Britney Spears has arrived in Manila.
According to live reports, Spears’ private plane landed at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport ( Naia) on Thursday, June 15, hours before she was scheduled to perform at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Before coming to the Philippines for her first-ever concert, Spears performed in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
The Philippine National Police (PNP) secured the arrival of Spears who was driven immediately to an undisclosed hotel.
The tight security on Spears comes on the heels of the bombing incident at the concert of another American pop superstar, Ariana Grande, in Manchester, England where 22 of her fans dìed, the youngest at eight years old.
Spears, a multi-platinum Grammy winner, has sold nearly 150 million records worldwide.
Spears’ “Baby One More Time” catapulted her to fame. This was followed by “Oops I did it Again”, “Toxic”, and “Womanizer”, among others.
Local clothing brand Bench and concert organizer Wilbros Live have put up the show.
