DJ Pauly D Joining Britney Spears Tour on Select Dates
For DJ Pauly D, it looks like the “T” in “GTL” means tour. The 31-year-old ‘Jersey Shore’ star, born Paul DelVecchio, has been booked for six dates on Britney Spears‘ Femme Fatale tour in August.
No, you don’t have beer goggles on. The record-spinning, fist-pumping DJ will join the pop singer on Aug. 17 in Grand Rapids, Mich., and wrap his short run on Aug. 25 in Charlotte, S.C. According to the MTV star, the appearances are a dream come true.
“I am so excited to be performing on the Britney Spears Femme Fatale tour,” Pauly D said in a statement. “Britney is one of my favorite performers and certainly one of this generation’s most influential artists. It’s an amazing platform to connect with my fans around the country.”
This isn’t the first time the DJ has shared the stage with Spears. He warmed up the crowd at her March appearance at Rain in Las Vegas. Pauly D will join the likes of Jessie and the Toy Boys, Nervo and Nicki Minaj, who are also opening for the ‘I Wanna Go’ singer.
Audiences won’t be hearing any Britney cuts during Pauly D’s set, though. “A DJ should not play the artist’s songs at her concert ’cause she has to perform these songs,” he told MTV. “I’m not going to be playing any Britney before she performs; maybe after. I’ll let her perform, let her shine ’cause it’s her night.”
