Pop star Britney Spears gave a free outdoor concert Sunday in Mexico City.

The singer’s Femme Fatale arrived South of the Border for a ticketed show at Foro Sol stadium Saturday night, then continued with a free concert at the Monument to the Revolution in the city center last night. The event drew an estimated 50,000 fans.

Here’s a clip of Britney, who just turned 30 Friday, performing:

Britney Spears Performs in Mexico

Mexico City’s leftist leaders have made large-scale public parties a populist hallmark of governments in recent years, arguing that many residents of the city are unable to pay exorbitant ticket prices for concerts or for vacations outside the city.

The capital sets up landlocked “beaches” featuring sand and pools during the warmer months, and an ice rink in the holiday season. Both initiatives have proved popular.

It is unclear how they scored a name as big as Britney Spears to perform at such an event, or if any money was paid to the singer, but it was 100% free for the public.
