Britney Spears might be the Femme Fatale, but that doesn’t mean she can’t share the stage with a guy too. After announcing he’d be opening up for Spears at her tour stop in New Jersey, Joe Jonas announced Thursday (August 4) that he’d also be her opening act for stops in Europe.
People reports that the singer — who drops his first-ever solo album, Fast Life, in October — will be on hand for nine dates, including stops in Sweden, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Ireland and the United Kingdom. Spears heads to Europe in September after she wraps up the North American leg of her tour August 25. Her European leg ends in November before she heads to South America for a handful of dates.
“I’m really looking forward to being part of this,” Jonas said of the jaunt. “It’s a dream come true.” He added that the warm-up gig will be an expanded version of smaller shows he’s been playing these past few months in places like Chicago and New York. “I’ll be playing more music than I have the past few times I’ve performed live so far. It’s going to be really fun to perform some of my music from the album.”
Jonas met Spears a few years back at the VMAs and said “she’s a very sweet lady” and that, as a kid, he had a bit of a crush on the singer. “She was the first girl I ever had a poster on my wall of, and her album was the first CD I ever bought,” he said. “It’s so funny to think I had that on my wall and here I am about to perform with her.”
