On her first night back in Vegas, Britney has been left shaken after a man interrupted her set and rushed onto the stage in an attempt to get close to the singer.
After enjoying a short summer break, Britney Spears returned to perform at her Piece of Me show at the Planet Hollywood hotel in Las Vegas on Wednesday. However, as Spears came to the end of one of her most iconic songs, (You Drive Me) Crazy, a fan rushed onto the stage. The man quickly garnered the attention of Britney’s security team, but the star was none the wiser, asking her fans if they were having fun and getting them pumped for the next song. As the commotion ensued, Britney soon spotted the man and appeared visibly shaken.

As security guards tackled the man to the ground, other members of the team protected the star and began to usher her off the stage. Videos from the event show Britney asking her bodyguards, “Is something okay? What’s going on?” after a reply from her security team, Britney asks with more urgency, “He’s got a gun?” It was at this point that Britney’s legs seemed to buckle, and she was quickly helped off stage.
Fans who attended the show have since released footage on social media.
