The 32-year-old star was scheduled to perform 50 shows per year in 2014 and 2015 as part of the initial deal, earning her an impressive $30 million, and Gary admitted it was a "gamble" in the beginning but he is now happy with how popular the show is and wants her to return for further dates.

Britney’s Las Vegas Show Is a Hit

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Concerts / Tours, Industry News, Pop,

Britney Spears in Las VegasBritney Spears' residency is already the best-selling Las Vegas show of the year.

The "Perfume" singer, who kicked off Britney: Piece Of Me at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino on December 27 last year, has already outsold Las Vegas residencies by Celine Dion, Elton John, Shania Twain and Rod Stewart. It is also the third highest-selling residency ever, behind Elton John's, which began in 2009, and Celine Dion's show, which started in 2011.

The 32-year-old star has only performed four shows so far, but tickets are on sale for concerts through to September. According to ticket website StubHub, 14 per cent of all tickets sold for Britney's show so far this year were for her February 14 concert, although they have declined to provide exact sales figures.

A number of big names have already been to see Britney live in Las Vegas, including Katy Perry, Adam Lambert and Miley Cyrus, who was seen dancing on the front row during the first 90-minute show in December.


Spice Girls Offered $41 Million Las Vegas Reunion

Spice GirlsThe Spice Girls have been offered $41 million for a Las Vegas reunion but only if Victoria Beckham is part of the show.

The iconic pop group would love to reform to celebrate their 20th anniversary this year, with several major venues keen to host the comeback. "A Spice Girls reunion in Vegas could easily generation $100 million worth of PR in a few weeks and earn the group $41 million in the process. There's huge interest from various major casinos and hotels so it's just a case of whether the girls can persuade Victoria to change her mind on the project," a source said.

The fashion designer - nicknamed Posh Spice during her time in the "Wannabe" group - is said to have given her former band mates permission to reform as a four piece, but the deal is only for a full reunion. "Posh is more than happy for the four girls to do it without her but the problem is the offer is only on the table for all five of them," the source added.


Leona Lewis: I Want a Las Vegas Residency

Leona LewisLeona Lewis wants her own residency in Las Vegas.

The "One More Sleep" singer aims to follow in the footsteps of pop star Britney Spears, who started her two year stint at Planet Hollywood last month.

"You get paid so much money to just go and do your show every single night. It would be amazing! I would love that. I want to go and see Britney. I am wondering how great that will be, though, as she is only performing two nights per month which I don't really understand. Two shows a month? Probably $10million per show!? I'm sure it will be incredible but I am intrigued to see how that would work."

After the success of her Christmas With Love album, the 28-year-old star is taking inspiration from Motown for her next record and says she no longer cares what people think about her or her success: "I couldn't give two craps what people think. I know what I do comes from the heart, so whatever other people say is irrelevant. People are always going to have an opinion of you. I just concentrate on the love I get from the fans."

"She was dressed incognito in a short black wig, feather boa and light-up devil ears. Others in her group had a boa or ears, but no one else was wearing the whole get-up," a source said.

This isn't the first time the Project Runway host has gone all out on a costume for an event as she dressed up as a wrinkled old lady for her spooky Halloween bash last year. The stunning model wore a pearl necklace, a suit skirt and blazer, as well as latex skin with wrinkle effects. Prosthetic effects and make-up were remarkably added to age spots and raise veins in her legs to give her skin an aged appearance. She also covered her luscious blonde locks with a white wig.

Britney to Retire after Las Vegas Shows?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Gossip, Rumors, Pop,

Britney SpearsBritney Spears is thinking about retiring after she completes her Las Vegas residency.

The "Work B***h" hitmaker, who has just released her eighth studio album Britney Jean, has revealed she might give up music after her two-year stint at Planet Hollywood and wants to expand her brood.

"I might [retire], who knows... I may have two more kids and get married... I'd like to have more kids," she said in an interview with Mario Lopez for Extra.

The 32-year-old has been dating lawyer David Lucado for eight months after splitting from then fiance Jason Trawick and has two sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline, Sean Preston, eight, and seven-year-old Jayden James. The Saved By The Bell star wanted to know if Britney wants girls or more boys, but the singer said "as long as they're healthy," she doesn't mind: "I think it does kind of help with dating someone not in the business, I could kinda understand if you're dating someone in the business they'd understand what you're going through every day and stuff. I feel like the chemistry kinda [sic] speaks for itself when you date someone out of the industry."


Britney Spears: Las Vegas Residency Is Ideal

Britney SpearsBritney Spears believes her Las Vegas residency is "ideal" as she won't have to travel too much.

The "Work Bitch" hitmaker is set to launch Britney: Piece of Me at Planet Hollywood next month, and she is looking forward to the short commute between her home in Los Angeles and Sin City after three "grueling" years of touring:

"I've done two tours in two years in the past three years and it's so grueling, being on the road and staying in a different bed every night. The schedule is insane. I thought it would be ideal to have one place I could go to and I could just travel back and forth to my home after the show. It's going to be different but I'm excited."

The 31-year-old star - who has sons Sean Preston, eight, and Jayden James, seven, with ex-husband Kevin Federline - also opened up about writing her new album, Britney Jean, which she says was like "therapy." Britney admits to feeling "reclusive" at times and having "harder" days in her life, but writing her eighth studio album sparked her creativity.
