When news broke that Britney Spears was slated to appear at an outdoor concert for free in the Castro District all the residents of the trendy community were ecstatic!
In spite of the obvious coupe for the City by the Bay - a handful of retailers in the area - complained that a swarm of concert-goers would overwhelm the streets, cause traffic jams, and clog a pathway to their front doors.
What an absurd selfish notion!
In fact - Good Morning America (who is hosting the free event) - not only intends to broadcast the taped performance on March 29th, but also feature a jazzy "travelogue" (with the specific aim of boosting tourism in the picturesque European-style destination city).
Before all the "star dust" settles, there will be an avalanche of National exposure - not only for the LGBT community - but also for the delightful town with a truckload of charms to offer the savvy world traveller.
Scott Wiener (District 8 Supervisor) gushed to local reporters that it was thrilling day for the Castro District (in spite of the whining of the party-poopers).
"It will bring out a lot of traffic that day. It is a great promotion for San Francisco," he chirped, excitedly.
Unfortunately, due to alleged security issues, the concert was moved to the Civic Center.
The ABC special event will tape tomorrow, Sunday March 27th (between 12 noon and 1 p.m.), and broadcast on Tuesday, March 29th (2011).
The concert has been timed to be air in tandem with Britney's new sizzling-hot album "Femme Fatale".
See 'ya there!
Britney loves Castro District!
(But, not enough)
