Britney Spears Demands Random Drug Tests for Crew on Circus Tour

The following italicized article is from

BRITNEY Spears is demanding her 225-strong support crew - including local production staff and support acts - be given random drug and alcohol tests while in Australia.

In a bid to keep her tour clean, Spears has ordered her tour party obey the terms of a confidential contract outlawing alcohol and drugs on her sell-out tour, Circus.

The ban extends to 150 local staff working on the tour, the Sunday Herald Sun reports.

"Britney's rule is clear - zero tolerance," a well-placed concert industry source said.

"No drink. No drugs. If you do not comply, you do not tour with Britney."

Spears will perform in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth in November.

The restrictions are designed to keep alcohol and drugs away from Spears, who suffered a substance-fuelled meltdown two years ago.

Spears must stay clean to avoid child custody issues.

Sons Sean Preston, 4, and Jayden James, 3, will travel to Australia with Spears.

Her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, will also be in the tour entourage.

Spears carried out drink and drug testing before and during her US tour and before her European dates.

"She will demand the same rules here," the source said. "You are not allowed to drink and, obviously, there are no drugs."

The alcohol ban extends to drinking beer or wine with a meal, even on days off.

A concert industry insider showed the confidential contract clause to the Sunday Herald Sun.

It states: "No alcohol. No drugs. These are terms of being on this tour."

Anyone found breaching those terms would have their contract terminated.

It also said everyone on Spears' Circus tour is subject to random drug and alcohol tests.

The tests involve giving a urine sample to Spears' tour management team.

Those who sign the contract are bound by a confidentiality agreement.

A spokeswoman for Spears said she was not aware of the zero-tolerance clause in the tour contract.

Her tour publicist said: "Our focus is the amazing show Britney is bringing to Australia."

Tour director Steve Dixon, said the formerly troubled superstar was in a good place.

"Part of her new life is balance," Dixon said last month.

"She's in great shape, she loves being on stage - it's her favourite part of the day. "The hard point is getting from place to place.

"But once we're there, we have this little city backstage and it's great."
