Britney Spears Bum-Rushed Onstage 'He's Got a Gun?!'

Britney Spears Bum-Rushed Onstage 'He's Got a Gun?!'

A awful fright. At her concert in Las Vegas on Wednesday, August 9, as part of her Piece of me tour, Britney Spears had a very bad surprise.

After four years on the Las Vegas strip, it was revealed earlier this year that Britney's residency would be coming to an end on New Year's Eve 2017.

"Is something okay? What's going on?!" she asked as a guard attempted to calm her down.

Video footage shot by concert-goers shows Spears, dressed in a red latex bodysuit and matching boots, performing a dance routine when the man appears on the left-hand side of the stage.

While fans were initially dismayed by the incident, the Oops I Did It Again hitmaker raised spirits when she returned for her final song.

In the video you see security in the background tackling the man. Spears performs in the foreground, not knowing what's happening behind her. This was undoubtedly a strong emotional evening for the star, who was nevertheless eager to regain the public in Las Vegas, after months of absence. Check it out. Britney's knee buckled as she clutched a security guard and asked, "He's got a gun?" The two men then take her to exit stage right, while other security members begin to assist the dancers in detaining the man.

It is unclear if the man had a gun at the time of the incident, but he was quickly subdued and removed from the venue. She released her most recent studio album, Glory, early previous year. When security handcuffed the intruder and carried him off stage, the crowd erupted into cheers.
