Legendary pop icon Britney Spears is answering the world’s plea to “Gimme More.” Last night, right before performing her hit song “3” during her wildly popular Las Vegas show, Britney announced on stage to a sold-out crowd that “I have some big news tonight … I am going to be in Vegas for two more years!” (Photo: © Erik Kabik/ www.erikkabik.com)

“When we first announced Britney: Piece of Me two years ago, we were certain that Britney’s residency would revolutionize the entertainment landscape in Las Vegas, and are thrilled at how successful the show has been,” said David Hoenemeyer, regional president of Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. “In addition to being named the best show in Las Vegas, among other accolades, Britney’s residency has marked a new era of entertainment as the city’s first pop music resident artist, and we at Caesars Entertainment couldn’t be more pleased to have her at The AXIS for two more years.”
Since opening in Dec. 2013, “Britney: Piece of Me” has received rave reviews from both critics and fans alike, with the show being voted the “Best Overall Show” and “Best Bachelorette Party” by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal earlier this year. The record-setting show is sold out on a regular basis, and has been seen by almost 400,000 guests.
Dazzling fans with show-stopping performances for more than 15 years, Britney has truly brought her most spectacular show to Las Vegas. A celebration of one of the most illustrious careers in music history, the jaw-dropping production is a compilation of more than 20 of Britney’s worldwide hits, including “Baby One More Time,” “Oops I Did It Again,” “Toxic,” “Circus,” “Womanizer,” “Slave 4 U” and her newest #1 single, “Pretty Girls.”
“Britney: Piece of Me” is the most cutting-edge pop concert experience ever produced for Las Vegas, featuring a four-piece band, 14 dancers, elaborate sets, unforgettable costumes and state-of-the-art technology. Directed by one of the industry’s most well-respected creative directors for live stage entertainment, Baz Halpin, the show’s creative team also includes assistant creative director Melissa Garcia, multimedia designer GEODEZIK, choreographers The Squared Division and costume designer Marco Marco.
Britney was the first artist-in-residence housed in The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, which features one of the largest indoor video and projection installations in the world. With its innovative layout and exclusive table and bottle service provided by Drai’s Management Group, The AXIS is set apart from any other venue in Las Vegas. The smaller, more intimately-sized theater allows Britney’s fans to see her as they’ve never seen her before.
