Britney Spears is apologizing to fans after smoky conditions at a concert in Vancouver, Canada, led to a 30-minute delay in her show.

According to a blog post on the show by The Vancouver Sun, Spears' concert was halted for a half-hour. The Sun also reported that some audience members grew impatient waiting for the 27-year-old singer and her troupe to return to the stage.

Spears' publicist, Holly Shakoor, issued a statement apologizing to fans. The statement said "crew members above the stage became ill due to a ventilation issue."

Spears began her "Circus" tour of the United States, Canada and England on March 3 in New Orleans. Her father and attorneys are exploring the possibility of expanding the tour. (Copyright 2009 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.) AP-NY-04-09-09 0702EDT
