Could Britney Spears be getting ready to say bye bye to her “Britney: Piece of Me” Las Vegas residency and hello to an international tour?
Spears recently teased the possibility of hitting the road again during an interview with the Las Vegas Sun, where she confessed that taking her uber-popular Sin City show on the road wasn’t completely out of the question.
“I hope we can do some touring!” Spears recently teased when asked if she currently has any plans to embark on her first international excursion since 2011’s Femme Fatale tour, which saw Britney play more than 70 shows in Asia, Europe, North America, and South America. “It’ll be fun to see my fans from overseas who haven’t been able to make it out to Las Vegas.”
But while Spears is keeping tight-lipped on whether she’ll be packing up and heading abroad when her “Britney: Piece of Me” shows take a short hiatus this coming April, this isn’t the first time Britney has hinted that she may be looking to take her show to the international stage.

This past September, a fan quizzed the pop star on her world tour plans on Twitter, where Spears responded with a pretty coy answer.
“Will there ever be another world tour in the future? #AskBritney,” Twitter user @Sarah_Quag tweeted Britney last year, to which she replied, “Who doesn’t love to travel?” alongside a winking face emoji.
E! News also hinted that Britney was potentially considering embarking on a global tour last year before she officially signed on the dotted line to continue with her Las Vegas residency into 2017.
An insider teased to the site back in July 2015 that Britney was currently weighing up her performing options at the time but had yet to make a firm decision on “what she wants to do” in terms of staying in Sin City or taking her show on the road.
Shortly afterwards, Spears confirmed on her official Twitter page that she would, in fact, be staying in Las Vegas for a little while longer, posting a video of herself announcing the big news while on stage at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino which she captioned, “Two more years!!!!!!!!!”

Britney Spears also opened up about the hard work she’s been putting into revamping her “Britney: Piece of Me” in her candid new chat with the Las Vegas Sun, where she hinted at some of the big changes she’s made during the show’s two-month hiatus.
Telling the site that she was “definitely excited” to return to the Las Vegas stage, Spears revealed that she’s “added a few fan-favorite songs into the show” and also “changed up the intro and had fabulous new costumes designed for each act.”
“I also put together an amazing dance break to three of my favorite Missy Elliot songs,” Britney continued. “And we have lasers now. I love the look of the lasers.”
“I’m constantly getting hit up by fans asking me to add this song or that song, and I thought it would be a great idea after two years to give everyone a little something different,” Spears revealed.
Britney also got candid in the new interview about her plans to release a follow-up to her 2013 album Britney Jean, where she coyly teased that fans can expect to hear new music from her sooner rather than later.
“You’ll be hearing something new from me soon… very soon,” Britney Spears teased.
