The Circus Starring Britney Spears, commonly referred to as the Circus Tour, was the seventh concert tour by American singer Britney Spears. It was launched in support of her sixth studio album, Circus (2008). The tour was officially announced in December 2008, with dates in America and Britain, but also dates in Australia in 2009.

The stage was composed of three rings and set in-the-round to resemble an actual circus. A giant cylinder screen was set above the stage to showcase videos and backdrops. Magician Ed Alonzo joined Spears during the second act. Effects were provided by Solotech, and fashion designers Dean and Dan Caten created the costumes.

The setlist was composed generally from her albums In the Zone, Blackout and Circus.
