Beginning in December, Las Vegas will be the only place on earth where you’ll be able to see Britney Spears perform over the next two years.
After months of speculation, the pop superstar announced her two-year Las Vegas residency show, titled “Britney Spears: Piece of Me,” at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. The approximately 90-minute performances will take place beginning Dec. 27 inside a 4,600-capacity planetarium-like theater with traditional seating, a dance floor, private tables and bottle service.
“This is a big Vegas-style production show, married with a dance club environment,” Kurt Melien, VP of entertainment at Caesars Entertainment, tells Billboard.biz. “It’s 21 of her greatest hits, effectively, and some of the music from her eighth studio album (scheduled for release on Dec. 3). It’s a retrospective on some of the most iconic moments of her life, combined with the more contemporary stuff that she’s doing today.”
Spears’ Las Vegas residency show is being directed by award-winning lighting and touring director Baz Halpin, who has also worked on tours by Katy Perry, P!nk, Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift and Swedish House Mafia, Billboard.biz has learned exclusively. Spears is slated to perform 50 shows per year in 2014 and 2015, starting on Dec. 27. The first tickets go on sale this Sept. 20, with prices ranging from $59 to $179.
