Britney may be planning a comeback. Even at an unscheduled event, tickets were being scalped for over $500 each.

--------------------
Britney performs at California nightclub By Sue Zeidler
Wed May 2, 5:15 AM ET
 
Britney Spears performed for the first time in more than three years on Tuesday, making a brief, unadvertised appearance at a San Diego nightclub, local media reported.

The gig, which reportedly lasted between 15 and 20 minutes, was not exactly a surprise. Rumors had run rampant in the past few days that three scheduled southern California shows featuring an unknown band called The M+M's were a cover for the troubled pop princess.

A television news report said $35 tickets for Tuesday's show at the 1,000-capacity House of Blues changed hands for as much as $500. The M+M's are also scheduled to play at House of Blues outlets on Wednesday near Disneyland and on Thursday on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles.

Spears' arrival at the San Diego venue was greeted by a horde of aggressive paparazzi and excited fans.

Wearing a brunette wig, a short top and skirt and tall boots, she performed five of her songs, and barely addressed the crowd, according to fans.

"I think she worked the stage, her body looked great. So it was good to see her finally come back and prove us all wrong," a female fan told Los Angeles TV station KNBC.

Spears, 25, whose professional achievements have been overshadowed by her personal crises, has not released an album since 2003. In that time, pop rivals like Christina Aguilera and Justin Timberlake have seen their careers soar.

Shortly after her 2004 marriage to her second husband, aspiring rapper Kevin Federline, Spears announced she would take some time off "to enjoy life" and "just chill."

Spears gave birth to two children, hit the Hollywood party scene and began behaving erratically. Far from her early image as a coquettish virgin, Spears generated headlines with her antics and was photographed in December wearing no underwear under her skirt. She appeared to hit bottom in February when she tearfully shaved her head, and then entered rehab for undisclosed problems.

There are signs that Spears is now refocusing on her career. After leaving rehab in March, she promptly finalized a divorce agreement with Federline, and fired her manager, Larry Rudolph.

She is reportedly recording her fifth album, which she started working on last year with red-hot hitmakers like R&B singer Ne-Yo and Swedish producer Max Martin.

In my younger years, I might have been one to buy those $35 tickets and sell them
for a nice profit. Did it once when Iron Maiden performed  a "secret" concert under the name
of "Charlotte and the Harlots," in 1987 at L'Amours in Brooklyn.

Nice to have positive news about a celebrity every now and then.

Great photos of Britney's return...

All she has to do is throw on a wig and still be scorching.    I like Britney Spears.    I've learned from my travels that she's the most famous international star in the world.   You can merely say "Britney" in any country in the world and pretty much anyone will know who you are talking about.    She's extremely popular.

She has NO TALENT - was that not proved again w/ the latest lipsynching - She can not sing (it is all about the studio tracks) I would never pay to go see her -  and her Disney couterparts Christina and Justin can sing - the public made her rich but most of getting fed-up with her -

I disagree.   She CAN sing.   The lip synching isn't because she can't sing.   it's because it's easier for her to put on a full on dance show concert while lip synching.    The public loves the performers to dance like crazy, not just sing.   ALL artists who dance like that in their shows are lip synching for the most part.   Don't kid yourself.

Doesn't matter if she can sing or not, if people pay to go see her. She still cashes the check. I predict a big comeback for her because her real fans will want to see how she's recovered and the bashers will want to see her fail. Either way, they're buying tickets. If a comeback tour fizzles, then it's "Hello, Mr. Hefner, I was just wondering..."

Latest lip syncing? We're going to talk about this again?

They ALL lip sync on some songs. And that includes Christina.

I was at the Christina concert Friday night and she put on a awesome show - She has the vocal cords to back her up - I also went to Justin show and he was fabulous - Britney is just  OK - I would not pay to see her -

All, please tell me you're still in high school. Otherwise, I'm scared.
