The Britney Spears free concert in the Castro this Sunday, March 27 is most definitely on – and don’t despair about the hard-to-come-by deets, we’ve got ’em.
Per the San Jose Mercury News, you can start lining up at two entrances at 8 am for the show that will be filmed by Good Morning America in front of the Castro Theater at noon.
The entrances are at the northwest and northeast corners of Castro and 18th (the 400 block of Castro). The 400 block will be filled first, and then organizers will begin populating the 500 block.
There’s no word on how many people will be allowed in, but entry is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you don’t get in, don’t despair. You’ll be allowed to hang out within dancing range on the other side of the gates, and concerned hipsters fear their Sunday will be ruined by strains of Brit’s just-released new album, Femme Fatale as far away Dolores Park. Thousands of San Franciscans will be affected, whether they want to be or not – and that’s before all the amateur YouTube clips hit the Internets, we’re guessing around 12:35.
Here’s what else we know:
Traffic impact: The 400 and 500 blocks of Castro, from Market to 19th streets, will be closed to traffic beginning at roughly midnight Saturday to 4 or 5 p.m. Sunday. Bus lines 24, 33, 35 and F will be rerouted during the closure.
Business impact: Businesses in the Castro will be open during the concert.
Why Britney is doing this: The Castro appearance is part of a major marketing blitz surrounding the singer’s seventh studio album, “Femme Fatale,” which hits stores March 22.
Why the Castro is doing this: It’s good publicity for both San Francisco and the Castro, according to [City Supervisor Scott] Wiener, since some 10 million people watch “Good Morning America.”
