Britney Spears has a new Vegas show that, if all goes as well as opening night, just might be a huge success. ABCNews.go.com reports that Britney has a two year contract to perform her ninety minute show at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino’s Axis theater in Vegas. LATimes.com reveals that the Axis theater has a seating capacity of 4,600 with no bad seat to be found.
With only four months to prepare for her show, Spears has proven that she can bite the bullet and do what needs to be done when it comes to show business. Britney received rave reviews, which came from anyone lucky enough to obtain tickets to see the 32-year-old perform. The audience consisted of many A-Listers, such as Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, DJ Pauly D, Mario Lopez, Adam Lambert, and Selena Gomez, just to name a few per ABCNews.go.com. Spears was not modest about the rave reviews, stating they were well-earned because of all the difficult dance moves she had to learn from working with choreographers.
Spears went on to say, “They’re new, up-and-coming fresh guys, so their stuff is really hard. It’s more rewarding after you perform something that’s really hard to do than just something that you just kinda throw together,” according to ABCNews.go.com.
In spite of country music artist Blake Shelton’s jab at Spears during the 49th Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday night in Vegas, she has proved to hold her own. As Shelton co-hosted the award show with Luke Bryan, ABCNews.go.com reports that as Luke Bryan made a comment about all the “live” performances that the audience could look forward to during the show, Shelton broke in and said, “If you don’t like live music, then you need to go down the block and see Britney Spears.”
In rebuttal to Blake’s statement, Britney’s manager, Larry Rudolph, told Billboard.com, “There’s not a single artist who can dance full out during a song and sing without a vocal track underneath them. The idea is to try to get her (Britney) pretty close to 100 percent. There might be some numbers where she’s full out dancing with a (vocal) track underneath her, but there won’t be any lip-syncing across the board on anything,” Rudolph said.
If you know that going into it, then you may be pleasantly surprised by Spears’ performance. Britney will perform fifty shows in 2014 and another fifty in 2015 with ticket prices ranging from $59.00 to $179.00. If you really want to fork out some money to get up close and personal with Britney Spears, you can purchase a VIP Package, which according to LATimes.com can run you anywhere from $275 to $5,000 depending on how close you want to get to pop diva, Britney.
The great news for Britney Spears and her fans is if her show continues to do well, the casino executives will likely extend her contract, ABCNews.com points out. One can only hope, right, Britney?
