DALLAS, TX—Clutching the ticket she bought months ago, Alyssa McCraw said she couldn't wait for the Britney Spears concert Tuesday at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.
"It will be a great show," said the 19-year old college student from Keller.
Spears flashy "Femme Fatale" tour has featured pyrotechnics lighting up the stage. The concert will come just days after the stage caught fire during a Rihanna concert at the AAC, prompting the singer to cut the show short.
McCraw was also at the Rihanna fiery fiasco and admits another pyro show is a little worrisome.
"It is a concern being back in there just three days later. You kind of worry what could happen."
Officials with the American Airlines Center said there will be no policy changes surrounding the Spears concert, despite the previous fire. Fans were discontent because they say Rihanna was also more than an hour late to take the stage.
Dallas-Fire Rescue officials reiterated it was Rihanna's pyro display that set a fabric chair on fire above the stage. The chair was occupied by a spotlight operator, who suffered minor burns. Today, Rihanna's camp announced there will be no refunds or a rescheduled concert for disappointed fans.
It was not what many spectators wanted to hear.
"I paid nearly $300 dollars for three tickets," Mark Cooper said.
Cooper says he bought the tickets as a graduation gift for his son. Cooper joined dozens of other people to "like" a Facebook fan page, calling on Rihanna to make amends to her fans.
"Without us paying for the tickets, she wouldn't be who she is."
