Pop star Britney Spears has announced she will tour Australia in November for the first time in her career.

In a statement on her website, the 27-year-old said she had wanted to visit the country for "quite some time".

The star, who is currently performing in London, will play six nights, kicking off in Perth.

"My Circus tour is the best show I have ever created and I can't wait to perform it for all of my Australian fans," she said.

She will also play two gigs in Melbourne, Sydney and one concert in Brisbane.

Erratic behaviour

Since topping the charts as a teenager with Baby One More Time, the star has sold more than 60 million albums worldwide.

In recent years there has been concern over her health, as her erratic behaviour eventually led to a stint in rehab. She also lost full-time custody of her two sons.

The tour, which started in the US, has received mixed reviews, with many critics disapproving of Spears' decision to mime large portions of the show.

However, her high energy dance routines have been praised and some agree the gigs mark her official comeback.

Her current album Circus was released on 2 December - the date of her birthday.

It debuted at number one in six countries including Canada, Switzerland, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, and top 10 in an additional seven countries.
