Britney Spears stopped performing halfway through her concert at the GM Place in Vancouver, after smoky conditions and ventilation problems forced the singer and her dancers to leave the stage for more than 30 minutes, the Vancouver Sun reported.
After performing a few songs, Spears and her dancers vanished for no reason, leaving the impatient crowd to chant and do the wave in complete darkness.
Twenty minutes later, a voice came over the loudspeaker to tell concertgoers that smoking marijuana and cigarettes is illegal at GM Place.
“It’s become uncomfortable and unsafe for the performers, including Ms. Spears. The show will resume as soon as the air around the stage is clear,” the announcement said.
After performing the final encore, Spears walked offstage with the words, “Thanks, Vancouver. You were wonderful. Drive safe. Don’t smoke weed! Rock out with your cocks out!”
