Good news for Britney Spears and her fans who have no been able to head out to Sin City to see her residential stay; she’s reportedly in talks to extend her show.
The show which is titled “Britney Spears: Piece of Me” began its residential stay at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino’s Axis theater back in December and now the pop star is being given the opportunity to extend her two-year stay to three years. If she chooses to stay in Vegas performing her 90-minute shows, Spears will reportedly make $12 million.
According to both New York Daily News and TMZ, she is about to close the deal extending her stay until December 2016.
“Britney Spears has been a great success for the company and will be extended, if she wants to do it, and I cannot see why not,” Caesars Palace president Gary Selesner told the New York Daily News. “She has been filling out the place every night, and she is enjoying it and is in good health.”
According to TMZ, Spears made $30 million when she signed on for the “Piece of Me” show, which by contract means she will perform 50 shows between 2014 and 2015. As of now, no other details have been given about the impending contract especially how many show she will have to perform with the addition of another year.
Like it was predicted last week, this has so far been Britney Spears’ week even though it looked like it might have been doomed when some leakers got their hands on a low quality version of her new single, “Work Bitch.” But a little leakage didn’t kill anyone, if anything it made her loyal fans even more excited for the new track that was officially released through iHeartRadio’s many stations Sunday afternoon.
This morning during a broadcast of Good Morning America, the 31-year-old pop star announced another round of big news for her fans; the residency that had been speculated for months, had been confirmed.
This morning, Spears arrived in the Mojave Desert, joined by hundreds of school girls via a helicopter to announce her new career move. The “Stronger” star announced that she will be heading to Las Vegas for a two-year residency at the Planet Hollywood with an expected 50 shows each year. In the end, she is estimated to make about $15 million per year for the shows.
“I’m going to definitely do the greatest hits but I’m going to have to put some of my new material in it to just keep it fresh,” Spears said while being interviewed on Good Morning America.
The new show will be called, “Piece of Me” which for those of you not familiar with the pop star’s catalog is actually the name of one of her songs from 2007’s Blackout. Tickets for Britney: Piece of Me go on sale September 20 and prices range from $59 to $179.
But wait, there a little bit of other information; her eight studio album which still does not have an official title (at least to the public) is set to be released on December 3.
How about that?
