Couldn't they wait to smoke until the concert had ended? Or was it really that boring?

The show didn't go on in Vancouver Wednesday night after Britney Spears pulled the plug on her sold-out Circus concert 15 minutes and three songs into her performance – departing the stage and leaving the audience in the GM Place in the dark for more than half an hour. Boos ensued.
Cigarette smoke from the crowd was blamed, with a female voice announcing to the crowd, "The building is awfully smoky. It is uncomfortable for everyone on stage, including Ms. Spears. Please extinguish all cigarettes – this is a non-smoking building, and the show will resume when the smoke on the stage is cleared," the Vancouver Sun reports.
Until the agitated crowd settled down, GM Place was filled with piped-in intermission music played at hockey games – which, one concertgoer told PEOPLE, left the fans "really pissed off. The break in the concert ruined it for everyone. The vibe was gone."
When she did return, Spears, 27, delivered a well-received Bollywood take on "Me Against the Music," followed by "Everytime" – during which she asked the crowd "What's up, Vancouver?" before she again left the stage, some 90 seconds before the end of the song.
The concert concluded with Spears singing "Womanizer" and advising the still-restless crowd, "Vancouver, don't smoke weed."
After the show, Spears's publicist, Holly Shakoor, issued a statement of explanation, the Associated Press reports. Her statement said "crew members above the stage became ill due to a ventilation issue."
Spears kicked off her Circus tour of the North America and England in New Orleans on March 3. Her father and attorneys are exploring the possibility of expanding the tour, says AP.

Couldn't they wait to smoke until the concert had ended? Or was it really that boring?
The smoke was the smell of her tour spontaneously combusting.
Oh I had assumed the smoke came from Britter's thunder thighs rubbing together.
Whatever. Bitch smokes like a chimney.
Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.
This is what Lainey had to say, so far, this morning. She was there for the concert.
Lainey's Entertainment Update - Celebrity Gossip | Photos | News | VideosThere are two kinds of cheetos in this world. Ones who work. And ones who don’t.
She needed a nap, ok?
Chicken Fried, oh the DRAMA! She was overdue!
Last night. Vancouver. Circus Tour. 3 songs into it, Britney walks off. For over half an hour. Darren and I, we were worried we’d get trampled by half dressed girls rioting. Thankfully someone was able to cajole Chicken Fried into resuming. Amazing. Was the most exciting development during an otherwise timewaster of a show. More observations later.
'Ventilation issue'? Was that the dancers were getting high off the weed fumes?
Hell is empty, and all the devils are here

By now I’m sure you’ve heard – Britney Spears stopped the Circus last night for more than half an hour claiming it was too “smoky”. This from a bitch who smokes in front of her kids. It was, for real, the best part of the concert. You know for the smut factor. Our theories about what she was doing, or not doing, and who might be nailing her, or what they were getting for her at Starbucks, or who had to finally threaten her with a lawsuit, all of it was so much more entertaining than her performance.
Also entertaining: what people were wearing. Or rather not wearing. Some girls, they were almost naked. We also wondered why you need to bring a 6 year old to a Britney Spears concert. But between the two of us – a child hating hag and a fag – perhaps we’ll never understand this.
But back to Britney …
Were there people smoking? Sure. But no more than usual. And it was not oppressive. It’s been much, much worse. It was much worse for George Michael. Much worse at Madonna. In my section, there was no smoke at all. At least not until she complained about it. After she complained about it, they all lit up just to bite her ass.
There was no smoke issue. There are many other issues, but there was no smoke issue.
Britney played Edmonton on Monday night and was on a plane right away, whisked away literally 5 minutes after the end of Womanizer to board her private jet back to LA. She arrived via private jet in Vancouver some time in the afternoon Wednesday. Once again, no more than 60 seconds passed after she left the stage at GM Place before her motorcade was speeding towards the airport. She had lifted off by 11:30pm.
She’s exhausted. She doesn’t give a sh-t. She could barely stand to fondle herself halfheartedly last night. Seriously – she needed a nap!
Can you imagine what they had to bribe her with to make her keep going?
We were wondering about that. We were wondering if they’d resort to hiring a boyfriend. She’s miserable without a boyfriend.
So anyway… how was the show?
As feared, the show was boring.
Britney spends the entire first costume set not walking. In fact, Suri Cruise probably walks more than she does. Instead, she pretty much gets wheeled around from end to end. Still…she was so tired, y’all. After riding around in a glorified shopping cart for 15 minutes, she walked off, not to return:
“Ms Spears will take the stage once the air clears”.
From her cheeto farts.
When she did come back, she did manage to use her own legs a few times. Barely. Because these days, Britney’s lower half doesn’t work. Girl has no steps. She also can’t be bothered to move her lips sometimes. She knows you know that she’s not singing. So why waste any extra energy pretending? Which is why Darren and I, we decided to change focus. We decided instead to play our favourite game:
Which dancer do you want to take to bed?
Super fun! And VERY challenging!
By far the most enjoyable part of the Circus and it doesn’t actually involve her – the dancer solos. Like America’s Best Dance Crew/So You Think You Can Dance. Killed.
Am torn between Justin, Chase, and George. Darren likes Chase so I let him go. We didn’t want to fight. On the ride home, I struggled with the other two. Still have yet to decide.
See? We had to play independently among ourselves. At the bargain price of $150 each.
At the very end, after a rather anticlimactic rendition of Womanizer, Britney said goodbye and advised everyone not to smoke weed. Then, even before they closed the trap doors, she was disrobing and hollering for her ride…
And this just about sums up the Circus Britney:
The Circus Britney has no finish. She cannot close. She cannot hold a pose until the very last note. There is no attention to detail. The show is sloppy because she is sloppy. I don’t care what the set looks like, how beautifully it was designed, how impressive the video display, how intricate the special effects because if everyone can see the artist not keeping up with the moves, breaking formation at the end of each number, and rushing into the traps, it may as well be a high school production.
This is no longer a professional. This is a girl squeezing as many millions out of a tour for the people living off of her, hoping that when it’s over, they will finally let her quit.
PS. That f-ckin’ weave is busted.
PPS. They keep showing video footage of her from the past, from Stronger. TERRIBLE strategy.

Maybe she was just jellus and decided to go have a smoke, too.
I don't know why people continue to pay money to see this mess.
eat a hot bowl of dicks.
^ ITA. Why does anyone bother when she clearly doesn't?
it was just pot. bfd.
Well, the whore apples sure didn't fall far from the whore tree. Sylkyn
Maybe her pussy wanted to come out for a smoke break.Britney Spears stops concert due to smoke
I was at this concert as well, there was no smoke anywhere, other than what came out of her overused smoke machine at the beginning, once we sat there for 20 min and then informed about the smoke, then it got good with all the boo's and the chanting of britney sucks, almost made the show worthwhile...lol...
Once she finally came back out to finish her "performace" (took her 10 min to walk around the stage) it was boring and rushed, thank god I got to go for cheap or I would have been really pissed off...I dont even think she knew where she was, after 45 min she finally said something to the crowd "Hi Vancouver", that was as personal as it got, before she left the stage before one of her songs ended...needless to say, it was good for a laugh!
