Britney Spears has been in ‘comeback’ mode for quite some time now. It appears a huge part of that comeback is now in the works as Britney Spears is planning a Spring 2009 tour. No details on Britney Spears tickets or dates have been revealed yet. Spears’ much publicized personal problems have kept the star from touring in recent years. Her last tour was in 2004 and it netted over $34 million in ticket sales on the primary market.
Britney Spears will be touring behind her new yet to be released album, “Circus”. The appropriately titled album will hit stores on December 2, 2008. The first single from that album, ‘Womanizer’ is already getting heavy play on pop radio. Once a Britney Spears tour is announced, check back with Ace for all your Britney Spears ticket needs.

The Chicago Cubs were never in it. They didn’t choke, didn’t have bad luck, they just never showed up. Saturday’s 3-1 victory by the Dodgers complete the three game sweep of yet another Cubs team with high expectations. Their Championship drought now stands at 100 years as Lou Piniella’s playoff record with the Cubs drops to 0-6.
“This is six games I’ve managed now in the postseason and we have scored just 12 runs. That doesn’t get it done”, said Piniella according to ESPN.com.
For the other side, the Dodgers have a much different story. Counted out for much of the year their 2nd half resurgence, thanks in large part to Manny Ramirez, has put them in position to shock everyone in their path. Manager Joe Torre seems to have this Dodgers team focused and motivated. Torre is no stranger to postseason play with now 79 playoff wins under his belt. The first 76 of course came with the Yankees. His last three however remind you more of his first postseason go around with the Yankees in 1996. That team not yet a super star ladened lineup were more the underdog than favorite. Either way if Torre and the Dodgers have their way, Torre will be celebrating his 87th postseason victory come the end of October.
