Britney Spears' concert tour is headed down the "Jersey Shore."
MTV reports that DJ Pauly D will open for Spears during six of her dates in August.
"I am so excited to be performing on the Britney Spears 'Femme Fatale' tour," he said in a statement.
"Britney is one of my favorite performers and certainly one of this generation's most influential artists. It's an amazing platform to connect with my fans around the country." Pauly D is sure to rock lots of tunes during his portion of the show, but Spears' songs won't be among them.
"A DJ should not play the artist's songs at her concert 'cause she has to perform these songs," he said. "I'm not going to be playing any Britney before she performs; maybe after. I'll let her perform, let her shine 'cause it's her night."
Pauly D will kick off his appearances August 17 at Spears' concert in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
