It was the worst kept secret in Hollywood or should I say Las Vegas, but it’s finally official. Britney Spears is headed to Las Vegas. The 31-year-old singer confirmed her two-year residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. Reportedly, Spears is getting paid $30 million for 50 shows. Not too shabby. Tickets go on sale September 20 with the first performance taking place December 27.
“We wanted the environment to be that way so people could come and have a good time and stand up and feel like they’re in the show with me,” Spears told Good Morning America. ”I love Vegas. The energy here is really, really good.”
Titled Britney: Piece of Me, the show is being billed as a mix of theater and club. She’ll perform new material along with revisiting some of her greatest performances. Check out the announcement and exclusive interview below which included over 1,000 fans holding placards revealing #AllEyesOnBritney.
