    Britney will bring her show to Connecticut.

    Britney Spears is taking her "Circus" act on the road and that road travels through Connecticut.  She will visit the state in late March.
     
    In an appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America" Tuesday, the pop star announced that her North American arena tour will open March 3 in New Orleans. Her new album, "Circus," arrived Tuesday, on her 27th birthday.

    She's scheduled to appear at the Mohegan Sun Casino on March 26.

    Spears' GMA appearance was the quite the spectacle.  Host Robin Roberts called it "our concert event of the year."  During the broadcast, a slew of stars, including Taylor Swift, John Travolta, Nicollette Sheridan, Teri Hatcher, Reese Witherspoon and Hugh Jackman – who sang “Happy Birthday” to the pop star – sent well wishes to Britney via taped greetings.

    “You look great,” Reese said to Brit, “and I hope you have a great day.”

    It is Spears' first tour in five years as she gains career momentum and stability in her personal life. Spears, who sang her hit "Womanizer" on "GMA," begins rehearsals next month.

    Spears' 27-city itinerary also includes Atlanta, Miami, Boston, Houston, Dallas, Minneapolis, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. She'll close the tour April 28 in Chicago.

    She will jump to London for performances on June 3 and June 4.

    Tickets go on sale beginning Saturday.  The tickets will range in price from $98 to $250.
