Britney Spears: Live and More! (stylized as britney spears: live and more!) is the second video by American recording artist Britney Spears. It was released on VHS on November 21, 2000 and later released on DVD alongside Spears' first video Time Out with Britney Spears (1999) on February 13, 2001.[1] The video includes Spears' performance on Waikiki Beach, Hawaii during her Crazy 2K Tour (2000). Spears toured in Hawaii with a mix of sightseeing, fan appearances, and live performances. The camera follows her as she practices with her dancers, hangs out with friends, and even attempts to dance hula. The highlight is the live performance where Britney sings her songs such as "Oops!...I Did It Again", "(You Drive Me) Crazy" and "...Baby One More Time". The video was a commercial success, peaking at number four on US Top Music Videos, and was certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In France, the video was certified platinum by Syndicat National de l'Édition Phonographique (SNEP) for sales of over 20,000 copies. It has sold over 500,000 copies worldwide.

Synopsis[edit]

"Since she first exploded onto the pop music scene in the summer of 1999, Britney Spears has dominated the world. In this collectable, must-have home video, Britney shows just what she can do like nobody else. Who wouldn't want to own the jaw-dropping, eye-popping videos for the hits "Oops!... I Did It Again", "Lucky", and "Stronger"? Britney's never shown such dancing talent, unique style and great singing. Speaking of talent, Britney holds her own and then some when she hosts the legendary TV variety show Saturday Night Live. Who could ever forget Britney as homegirl Down Paslowski on "Morning Latte", meeting "Woodrow the Homeless Man" in the sewer or judging dancer try-outs for her tour? Finally, Britney takes you on a tropical vacation to Oahu, Hawaii, which includes stellar live performances of her hits from her two multi-platinum albums ...Baby One More Time and Oops!... I Did It Again. Plus, you can spend some "down time" with Britney as she enjoys the stunning, sun-soaked beauty of Oahu and its people – a trip truly worth taking again and again! Britney Spears: Live And More! gives you the many faces of Britney as a live performer, a comedic actress, a fun-loving, all-American teenage girl and a powerful superstar.[2]
