Britney Spears to Play Las Vegas Strip
Spears has a two-year contract to play 50 shows annually at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino for “Britney: Piece of Me.” The singer will earn $310,000 per show, or about $15 million per year, TMZ reported. The hotel, previously known as The Aladdin, is owned by Caesars Entertainment Corp.
“Britney: Piece of Me” bows Dec. 27 with tickets priced between $66.50 to $194 (including fees). Show will include material from her currently untitled eighth studio album, to drop Dec. 3, and past hits.
“I love Vegas. The energy here is really, really good,” the 31-year-old singer said in an interview with “GMA,” adding that she has been training upward of 5 hours daily to prep for the show.
Spears choppered into the Nevada desert, where “GMA” had bused in a crowd of 1,300 people — some dressed in Spears’ trampy-schoolgirl look — to “surprise” her with a giant poster of herself.
On Sunday, Spears released a new single, “Work Bitch,” which has hit No. 1 on charts in 36 countries. Her other recent projects have included a song for “Smurfs 2″ soundtrack, “Ooh La La.”
